The 91-year-old actress, who played matronly Edna Garrett on “The Facts of Life” and “Diff’rent Strokes,” battled pancreatic cancer seven years ago.
“Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer,” Rae told People. “About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually it’s too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew.”
