Friend Explains Farrah Fawcett's "Controversial" Treatment

Farrah Fawcett's best pal, Alana Stewart, is speaking out on her friend's behalf regarding the "controversial" cancer treatments Fawcett received in Germany.

Says Stewart:

Farrah chose to go to Germany because they are doing a lot of treatments over there that are very cutting edge (and not yet approved in the United States). They inject the tumor directly with chemo, it's called 'embolization.' Your immune system is not compromised as it is when you do the standard.

Even though Fawcett's treatments were "excruciatingly painful" because patients of embolization are not allowed to go under anesthesia, Stewart said Farrah had an amazing sense of humor about her cancer treatment and still is able to joke about the procedure.

Keep those spirits high!

    William Powell was diagnosed with 'rectal cancer' in the late 1930's. Instead of following doctors orders and having chemo (which frankly appears to kill most people before the cancer does), he had an experimental treatment which involved inserting platinum needles containing radium pellets into his body, where they remained for six months, by which time his cancer had gone into remission. He returned to movie making and died in 1984, still cancer free. So… why isn't this done more often?? Why does American medicine allow millions to die if cancer can be cured??

    Re: stargate121 – Eh - the only things allowed in the US are the things that make money for the drug companies. Unfortunately, your country is run by them.
