Valerie Harper: "We Are All Terminal"
The beloved Valerie Harper--also known as Rhoda Morgenstern--just got a really harsh cancer diagnosis, but she's got something to say about it, and she did so in a video for People magazine, which is one of the most memorable things I've ever seen.
I can't even describe this clip, except to say Valerie is real, touching, beautiful, inspiring, and turns a couple of minutes into a towering experience, as only she could.
Cancer ain't got nothing on this goddess. We love you so much, Valerie. And you too, Rhoda.
