Tony Cacciotti Valerie Harper’s Illness

Valerie was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009. On March 6, 2013, she announced that tests from a January hospital stay revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a rare condition in which cancer cells spread into the meninges, the membranes surrounding the brain. She added that her doctors had given her as little as three months of life expectancy. Harper’s doctors said they were treating her with chemotherapy in an effort to slow its progress, although the disease was reported to be incurable. She said that she was responding well to the treatment in April 2014. Harper was hospitalized in Maine on July 30, 2015, after she fell unconscious. She was taken via medical evacuation to a larger hospital for further treatment, and she was later discharged.

She continued battling cancer with treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in 2016. She was well enough to appear in a short film, “My Mom and the Girl,” based on the experiences of director/writer Susie Singer Carter, whose mother has Alzheimer’s disease. Harper made a comment in September 2017, saying, ‘She’s on her way to death and quickly’. Now it’s five years instead of three months… I’m going to fight this. I’m going to see away.”

In July 2019, she was on a regimen of “a multitude of medications and chemotherapy drugs” and was experiencing “extreme physical and painful challenges” that required “around the clock, 24/7 care.”

Despite Cacciotti being told by doctors to put Valerie in hospice care, he vowed no. He shared on Harper’s official Facebook page on July 23, 2019, “I have been told by doctors to put Val in hospice care, and I can’t [because of our 40 years of shared commitment to each other] and I won’t because of the amazing good deeds she has graced us with while she’s been here on earth.”

We will continue going forward as long as the powers above allow us, and I will do my very best to make Val as comfortable as possible.

There are two special angels on this planet masquerading as humans who live and work together, which has made it possible to have all of Val’s needs taken care of.

For those of you who have been in this position, you will totally understand that “it’s hard letting go.” So as long as I’m able and capable, I’ll be where I belong, right beside her.

Many, many thanks for your outpouring of kindness and support.

In early July, one of her relatives created a GoFundMe campaign to help offset Harper’s medical expenses.
