Mary Tyler Moore - Mary Tyler Moore Heading To Hospital For Brain Surgery

Mary Tyler Moore, the American actress and star of the 'DICk Van Dyke Show', is set to undergo brain surgery to remove a benign tumour, reports People Magazine. Mary Tyler Moore has elected to have a long-present meningioma removed from the tissue lining her brain.
It is not yet clear when Moore will undergo the surgery, but her representative said she had been considering removing the tumour for some time, saying, "At the recommendation of her neurologist, who has been monitoring this for years, and a neurosurgeon, Mary decided to proceed with this fairly routine procedure". A meningioma is a slow growing tumour in the membranes that cover the brain, they often occur in older adults but are most benign. The 73-year-old, best known for her iconic roles on 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' and 'The DICk Van Dyke Show', most recently guest starred on TV Land's 'Hot in Cleveland', reuniting with her co-star Betty White after 33 years apart. Tyler Moore also made a surprise appearance on today's episode of 'The Rachael Ray Show' in an episode that was filmed on 5th May 2011.
Mary Tyler Moore's latest movie appearance came in 2009 when she starred alongside Joseph Fiennes in the drama 'Against the Current'. The film followed the story of a man who enlists two friends to help him swim the length of the Hudson River.
