However, a source close to the situation says it's not looking good for Harper.

After beating lung cancer in 2009, and later being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2013, the Mary Tyler Moore Show star has been fighting for her life for many years, though as of Spring 2015, Harper's cancer had not spread.
