I saw a headline that stated that Valerie Harper is “absolutely cancer-free,” and it turns out that the 74-year-old was misquoted.
While she was promoting her two episode story arc on Hallmark Channel’s new original series, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” in New York she had to confront the erroneous headline which declared that she is cancer-free.
You would think that if you read something on enough websites it must be correct, right? That’s what I initially thought, but this is a case of not believing everything you read online. Ms. Harper was even trending on Twitter because of all the websites that were talking about her “great news.”
Valerie Harper had this to say in a statement: “In response to a recent erroneous quote concerning my health, I am not ‘absolutely cancer-free.’ I wish I were. Right now what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition and I have hope for the future.”
“Signed, Sealed, Delivered” will be premiering Sunday night at 8 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel.
We here at THZ are keeping Ms. Harper in our prayers, and we wish her the best on her road to recovery. She’s a very inspiring woman.
