Farrah Fawcett, 62, lost her battle with anal cancer today, Thursday June 25, 2009. Diagnosed in 2006, Fawcett spent the last 3 years fighting for her life with both conventional and alternative treatments. Fawcett was known as a high-spirited 70’s icon with hair that most women have tried tirelessly to attain. She has been recognized for her roles in “The Burning Bed”, “The Guardian” and of course the notorious “Charlie’s Angels”.
MSNBC recently released a heart wrenching documentary that portrayed the late actress’s struggle while fighting cancer. It showed her with an indescribable admiration for life and a strength that can never be forgotten. Today Fawcett is herself an angel. Unfortunately, her cancer took a turn for the worse; however, Fawcett died in the presence of those who loved her. A "Barbara Walters Special" with Ryan O'Neal, her long time partner and others close to Fawcett was scheduled to air Friday at 10 p.m. but has been moved to tonight at 10, according to a report in New York's Daily News.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Fawcett’s family. Wishing them strength during this difficult time.
