Valerie Harper has incurable lung cancer. http://www.aarp.org/...unny-and-Footlo

 

She might not be notable enough for UK purposes but she's definitely famous in the U.S., having played Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore show.

Her condition has been reported on in the (shudders) Daily Mail and the Express, so they'll likely follow up with an obit. She's on my list as it stands, which means she'll probably die at 2359 hours on 31 Dec 13...

I recall seeing an article that said her current treatment would work for on average 10 months before the cancer starts to become resistant. And said article was from a few months back. I'm not quite sure if this is her year, but there's definitely enough of a chance that I don't want to risk missing out.

I understand it is not brain cancer but lung cancer mestasized to the lining of the brain. Treatments seem to have put it into remission.

Talk about kicking a committee when they're down....

With her and Wilko Johnson looking certain to see the year out it's appearing more likely no one reaches the 100 point threshold this year on the DDP.
