valerie harper cancer free gi Valerie Harper isn't 'absolutely cancer free', but has 'hope for the future'

It was just over a year ago, in March 2013, that “Rhoda” star Valerie Harper revealed she had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. At the time she said she had as few as three months to live.
Harper is in much better condition now, but despite reports to the contrary, she’s not cancer-free. After finding out that she was quoted in Closer Weekly as being “absolutely cancer-free,” the former “Dancing with the Stars” competitor released a statement.
“In response to a recent erroneous quote concerning my health, I am not ‘absolutely cancer-free.’  I wish I were,” she says. “Right now what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition and I have hope for the future.”
Back in August, Harper’s doctor told “Today” that she was “close to remission” and “defying the odds” after the terminal diagnosis.
