Even Lou would have to admire Valerie Harper‘s tenacity. Just weeks after revealing on Good Morning America that doctors have given her three to six months to live due to a rare form of brain cancer, it was announced that Harper would be joining a full-blown Mary Tyler Moore Show reunion on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland.

Deadline reports that, in an episode due to tape April 5, series star Betty White will stage a reunion of her old bowling team friends. The members of The Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling (GLOB) just happen to include Mary Tyler Moore, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel (who’s already made Hot in Cleveland appearances), and Harper. It’s the first time all these women have appeared together onscreen since the 1977 finale of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. It may also be the last time we ever see Harper in an episode of scripted television.

Will you be watching when it airs later this spring?
