DWTS Season 17 Update On Valerie Harper’s Health Condition

“We are all terminal and it’s great to face that — and then discard it,” she insists. “Don’t live in fear of dying.”

Great news for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 contestant Valerie Harper. She tells Closer Weekly that her cancer has regressed again.

“[My doctor] said, ‘At the rate we are going, you don’t have to worry,’” she tells Closer in an exclusive sit-down interview. “‘You will see Christmas!’”

After two promising prior scans, Valerie knew the odds were against her: “I thought, could I be so lucky to have that happen again?”

It was just seven days after being eliminated from Dancing with the Stars that Valerie had to face “D-Day,” her term for the Oct. 14 brain scan that would reveal whether her cancer had progressed.

After so many months of saying her goodbyes, Valerie arrived for her interview with Closer exulting that she is “signing up for life!”

Sharing the unexpected good news that the test showed her cancer has continued to regress, Valerie tells Closer, “I do believe in miracles.” Still, she candidly admits that, yes, she knows her health situation remains precarious. “It can turn on a dime.”
