Farrah Fawcett Keeps Fighting, Though Heavily Medicated

| Filed under: Love LineFarrah Fawcett


Farrah Fawcett is really trying her hardest to do everything she can to beat her illness!

The Charlie's Angel alum was diagnosed with anal cancer back in 2006, which has since spread to her liver.

Fawcett's pal, Alana Stewart, helped produces the documentary, airing on NBC this Friday, about Fawcett's fight with cancer. Stewart says: "I know that Farrah hasn't given up." And Fawcett's longtime love, Ryan O'Neal, feels the same way.

He says that fans will enjoy the very personal documentary. Adding that "They'll think they made the right choice years ago when they fell for her. She's a doll. She's a beauty inside and out."

O'Neal also reveals about Farrah: "She's heavily medicated. We're going to take some of these medications down so she's lucid and sharp to watch herself. I think she'll take great pride in this."

Ryan says that the doc started off as a personal record to show her "success story" for family viewing. But, "somewhere along the line she got so many letters thanking her for her battle and courage and strength. She started to feel there must be a reason she got cancer. If she had cancer, maybe it was her responsibility to do something for others. That's how the film evolved. Her big message to people is don't give up, no matter what they say to you, keep fighting."

Keep fighting!

    My aunt died of cancer two years ago. Lymphoma. It sounds like to me Farrah is in the very end stage right now and honestly? There's a point when a person stops "fighting" and listens to their body. It isn't something you actually control. It's a process and certain stuff happens. I think for people who care about this, they should just pray that she has a peaceful transition and that her messed up son will find strength somewhere to cope with this.
    I know Ryan is sad, and he says he was right there and helped her, for moral support, but I honestly find his recent TV appearances over the top. This is about Farrah. She's the one whose dying. He seems like he is perfroming. He has one of those narcissistic personalities, I think. I'm afraid their son will be a wreck now. Ryan was a rotten father and a rotten husband. Maybe he's really been trying to repair that for the past couple of years. Except he has really screwed up Redmon. I liked Farrah.

    Perez you asshole, put a nicer picture of her up. Honor her for the beautiful woman she is, rather than capitalize on her illness.

    Gotta watch this, best to her

  9. Bytch says – reply to this


    Please stop giving the world a play by play to her death. Her family needs privacy right now, and even though some members aren't giving her privacy, the decent ones would like her to have privacy…give her dignity and the publishing until after the worst happens.

    FUCKING CANCER!!We have a war on terror, war on drugs, war in Pakistan/Afghanistan/Iraq. Why the hell isn't there a war on CANCER?! Cancer kills more people! Do we even have priorities anymore? OH, and by the way. Isn't marijuana used to help relieve cancer symptoms?YES, but we're at war with that too.

    WTF — use a better pic — you really must hate the woman

  12. 12

    in this picture she looks like she is eating

  13. 13

    She's been heavily medicated for years.

  14. 14

    Re: Bytch – Amen to that! Didn't he just report that she didn't like when her shit was out for the world? And he's suppose to be a "fan"? Dumbass homo.

    Perez, I know this is a tough time for Farrah, but I find it interesting that Ryan O'Neal just recently charged with Posession of Meth not that long ago and found it relevant to mention that she is "heavily medicated". Once an addict always an addict. I would not be supprised if he dips into the cookie jar. I might be wrong but it seems he was abusive to her in the past as well. I've always seen him as a waste of space.

    Re: KidKoala – I was coming on here to say the same thing - definitely Owen Wilson in a wig…lol

    Isn't it called colon cancer and not anal cancer, Perez?? And you must have a better photo in your file.

    Heartbreaking story. Farrah's courage is unbelievable.

    The whole situation is sad, but awefully visible for such a private matter. look how fucked up the Tammy faye demise was. The celebrity factor does keep matters public, but this is really too much. AND PEZIE, REALLY - THAT PIC? DID YOU DOC? I SURE HOPE NOT. SHE LOOKS LIKE JIMMY DURANTE FOR CRIP'S SAKE. JEEZ, SOME RESPECT PLEASE.

  21. 21

    Re: KidKoala – YES! She does. I've been wondering who she's been channeling. It's Owen Wilson! Hahahaha.

    Re: Sabine1 – If it's in your ass, it's called ANAL or rectum.

  23. 23

    this is starting to really annoy me…..PUT A DECENT PIC OF HER YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE. NOW DAMMIT !

    Re: KidKoala – HA HA HA !!! GOOD ONE "how ore you"

  25. 25

    She is always going to be the beautiful chick that made my 9 year old self want to feather my hair and don a pair of tight skater-girl shorts! She is a true icon! It's so sad to know she's battling such a terrible disease and my thoughts and prayers continue to go out to her and her friends and family. She seems to have a lot of supportive people on her side and for that, I'm very glad!

    I wasn't a Charlie's Angel fan, but now that I have leukemia, my heart goes out to her and her family. Sure would be nice for the kid to straighten up. I'm going to watch the show as well.

    Re: e46Girl – Indeed!
    Why are you, Perez, keep on showing this horrible photo?

  28. 28

    Re: Bytch – You have got my support too!
    Although I care about news on my Princess Farrah, I 'd prefer the good ones. By now, I leave her with the Angels… not Charlie's, but God´s!

    Re: Wonkisms – You know, Ryan used to be my favorite, with lots of space for him in my sweet and youth heart in the 70's… And today, I sadly have to agree with you.

    Re: mimi85 – God bless you, mimi85! I have 4 friends who made very well after leuchemia! IT IS VERY POSSIBLE, have faith, just BELIEVE and go for your good health back! Thanks for supporting Farrah.

    Re: VelvetStaccato – Cool! So Farrah is kind of a Princess to you too!
    We both have something in common, not the age (I guess I'm pretty older) but it is all about icons… Welcome to Farrah's fans circle! Your support is needed.
