Harper, who is suffering from terminal brain cancer, told People, "When they asked, I thought, 'Why would I say no?' When life asks you to dance, you just have to dance."
The actress has been ramping up for the show, practicing four hours per day. "I feel much better," the 74-year-old said. "And my brain scans are looking better too. The doctors tell me there's less evidence of cancer, which is very unusual. However, they both say it's not a case of if, but when. And I can live with that."
