Even after losing her battle to cancer in 2009, actress Farrah Fawcett is still helping the cause.
Her cancer research foundation, the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, has teamed with Mattel to create a Barbie doll based on the Charlie's Angels star's most iconic 1976 poster, in which she poses in a sexy red swimsuit.
Fawcett's best friend, Alana Stewart, acts as president of the late actress' foundation and signed the deal with the toy company to make the collectible. She believes Farrah would "love" the doll, explaining:
"(It has) a sexy, all-American beauty; there is an innocence to it. When we were in Germany (for treatments), Farrah told me she was glad she got cancer because now she could make a difference."
We have no doubt that this doll WILL make a difference! With so many Farrah Fawcett fans around the world today, we're sure they will flock to the toy stores to share their favorite actress with an entirely new generation of children.
