Sad news for Hollywood today. Mary Tyler Moore alum Valerie Harper has died, TVGrapevine has learned. She was 80 years old.

The actress has had health issues for years, including lung cancer and a brain tumor. In 2013, she was only given months to live, but she beat the odds and competed on Dancing With The Stars later on that year.



Her health made headlines earlier this year when she took a turn for the worse. A Go Fund Me was set up for her in order to help pay for medical expenses her insurance didn’t cover. Her husband also declined to put her in hospice care, saying that he committed to stay by her side.

Valerie is survived by her husband Tony and daughter Christina. TVGrapevine sends condolences to her family during this time.
