Never one to hide, Valerie Harper, who recently admitted that she has terminal brain cancer and is only expected to live for three to six more months, will appear on the syndicated show “The Doctors” to talk about her condition.

Harper will appear on the show with her husband as well as former castmates Cloris Leachman and Ed Asner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the interview, Harper revealed that her husband, Tony Cacciotti, originally kept the diagnosis from her because of its negative outlook.

“I have to tell you I am blown away by her resilience and her resolve in the face of such a dire, dire diagnosis,” said series co-host Dr. Travis Stork.

The episode will also feature Harper discussing how she plans to spend her remaining days and feature the team of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center physicians treating Harper’s brain cancer.

Harper’s episode will air on Monday.
