No matter what obstacles came her way, Mary Richards could throw her hat in the air - and move on to another day in the city as a working single woman.
Let's hope that same spirit can help Mary Tyler Moore, who played Richards in that iconic series in the 1970s, through her medical problems.
For years Moore has struggled with diabetes. One common side effect is sight impairment. The condition is worsening, reports the New York Post. Here celebrity friends such as Betty White are concerned. During the past 2 years Moore has essentially become blind. Here is that coverage.
The entertainment community should be rallying around Moore during this ordeal.
