Valerie Harper Gets GoFundMe Page for Healthcare Funds Amid Cancer Battle

Valerie Harper, the Emmy-winning actress best known for her work as Rhoda on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, is in need of funds for her healthcare and a friend has launched a GoFundMe page to provide support.

The 79-year-old actress was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 and then brain cancer in 2013. She has been bravely fighting the cancer ever since.

Valerie has been grateful over the years for the medical breakthroughs along this difficult journey but insurance doesn’t cover everything,” Valerie‘s friend wrote on the GoFundMe page. “There are unrelenting medical costs on a continuous basis. Valerie is currently taking a multitude of medications and chemotherapy drugs as well as going through extreme physical and painful challenges now with around the clock, 24/7 care immediately needed which is not covered by insurance. This is just part of the daily cost that is without a doubt a financial burden that could never be met alone. This GoFundMe initiative from Tony, is to ensure she receives the best care possible.”

The fundraising campaign was reportedly put up quietly and just sent around to members of the Screen Actors Guild, according to The campaign has since gone public and donations are pouring in from around the world.

You can visit right now to donate to Valerie’s healthcare.
