Farrah Fawcett – A Final Message

farrah_fawcett

Farrah Fawcett is near the end of her life after suffering from anal cancer that has metastasized throughout her body. Well known as one of the most popular pin up girls of all time, Farrah has decided to share in her battle with cancer and the paparazzi. Her rights have been violated, her medical records breached, and rumours of her being near death have been publicized since December of 2006.  She prerecorded an interview with Today show that is currently getting ready to air. 

Having suffered from cancer myself, I cannot imagine the hell that Farrah has gone through with the paparazzi…..  Believe me, when you are going through chemo the last thing that you feel is “glamourous.”  Even the remark that Ryan made saying “yes, she has lost her beautiful locks of hair”, is telling in itself.  What in the hell do people expect?  I could just imagine the paparazzi trying to get close enough for a picuture, or even more realistic, paying for a pic of Farrah as she lay dying.  I’m sure that would sell in the tabloids.

Ryan O’Neal was quoted as saying “In the last two years, I loved her more than I’ve ever loved her – ever,” he said. “She’s so much more of a woman and powerful, courageous, fearless, all those adjectives. I look at her with awe.”

  1. I’m a fan, so don’t get me wrong here. I saw previews of her upcoming special, and one phrase she uttered struck me as so… ironic — is that the right word?? She said “It’s seriously time for a miracle.” How true, not only for her but for everyone in every situation when it hits home. Perhaps if we could strip our country’s leaders of all their salaries, health care, credit cards, etc. etc. etc… and put them in the same situation that many Americans are in right now, they might be thinking the same thing: It’s SERIOUSLY time for a miracle here… Funny how things get serious when they’re happening to you…

    • My prayers are with you Jan, life can be so unfair at times. I believe that you won’t miss the smell of rain or the crickets on a summer night. I believe that the end of our journey will be glorious and we will not know or recognize the material wants or needs any longer. God bless…

  3. I found it odd that when the anal tumor was first diagnosed, she opted for radiation rather than surgery to remove it which would have left her with a colostomy bag. I noticed she also chose alternative treatments that were more likely to spare her hair rather than the more conventional ones, and only chose the tradional therapies when nothing else was working and her situation was becoming dire. I can’t help but wonder if different choices would have made a difference…

  4. Hmmm…interesting questions trickey, I never looked at it that way. I know for me, if my cancer returns, I would have a big decision if I were to undergo chemo again. Not due to any cosmetic reasons, but I feel I already have side effects from the chemo. I used to joke that if the cancer didn’t kill you the chemo would. No joking matter, but I deal with a lot of things with humour. I believe in a quality of life over a quantity, but one never knows until she/he is put in that situation.

  5. O.K., I could not watch this story Friday night when it first aired. I’m watching in know. So sorry, for Farrah, what about the “other human lives” cancer will strike.

    Don’t get me wrong, I feel so sorry for her. Why does the media do this? What about the father, sister, brother, mother and friends and all the other loved one’s we have lost but we don’t hear anything about them.

    Why does it take this? Look at Michael J. Fox and his Parkinson Disease. I have a friend who just passed away shy of 2 months of this disease after having it for over 16 years. Why does it take Michael J. Fox with this illness to bring it to life.

    Life is tough, Farrah has a disease that will kill her, I’m sure we have all lost loved one’s to this terrible disease……

    End of life is hard and we will all face it, I have to say I would be like Farrah, praying for a miracle, crying and asking for forgiveness, God Bless me if they put me on TV to “tell my story”.

    And did anyone notice that she was there for 5 weeks and it did nothing but rain!

  6. Dear Farah;

    I just finished watching your story. ( I am still crying . )My heart goes out to you and your family and friends. As a child of the 70s I grew up watching you on ” Charlie’s Angels” and the other work you have done. I have always admired you. I even once tried to get the ” Farah ” cut until my hair stylist at the time said ” sweetie that only looks good on blondes and I was a raven hair gal but oh well. Then I tried to adopt the ” Jacklyn Smith ” LOL. I mean no disrespect at all.
    My family has been rocked by cancer as well. My grandfather died in 1991, my senior year of high school. It started as rectal cancer, then spread to his liver and kidneys. He had several sugeries and rounds of chemo and radiation until sadly he lost the strength to fight on. My great aunt Catherine battled both rectal and breast cancer before she died at the age 92. We said that she beat the cancer and at least got to die of “good old fashioned old age “. My mother battled cervical cancer. Her ordeal was only 8 months of surgery , chemo and radiation but oh what hell those 8 months were to watch her go through. Thankfully she is in “remission ” ten years now. But recently my grandmother’s mamogram came back with ” masses” and she will have to undergo a biopsy. Our famliy is holding our breath. My daughter Taylor,who is 14 recently ran for the local ” relay for life ” chapter and bless her heart raised $120 for cancer research. She is quite an athlete she ran track this season and has played softball for 6 years now.
    The battle for the cure is something near and dear to our hearts . I wish you well and most importantly I wish you health and of course “victory “.

    Sincerely yours ,
    Crystal

  7. I was born exactly eleven days after you Farrah. I remember when I first saw you on TV, I thought you were the most beautiful women I had ever seen; and after forty years I still feel that way. What I never realized is that you are a genuinely good and sweet person. your exterior beauty is more than matched by your loving, kind, caring and courageous personality. Your passing has brought me to tears many times. May you rest in peace Sweet Farrah.
