Farrah takes a turn for the worse

Sad news from Farrah Fawcett’s longtime partner Ryan O’Neal.

The actor recently confirmed that Farrah has lost her trademark tresses and her treatments are nearing the end. Ryan says, “She stays in bed now. The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment. The treatment has pretty much ended.”

Farrah’s family has chosen to keep her son Redmond’s troubles a secret from her, “Farrah doesn’t know Redmond’s in trouble, and Redmond is terrified for his mother. ‘I don’t want to be in jail and have some guard tell me she is gone,’ he said to me. I told him, ‘She’s rebounding.’ I lied to him. I lie to her. It’s the best thing,”

O’Neal, 68, recounts how the cancer spread to other parts of her body, including her liver. Fawcett, 62, will walk viewers through her illness in NBC’s Farrah’s Story, a two-hour documentary she shot with friend Alana Stewart.

Such a sad and tragic situation.

Its such a sad story. It just proves that money and fame cannot buy you good health. We are all equally vulnerable to sickness and disease.
Farrah was my idol in the 70’s – I had a “Farrah” haircut just like hers. I can’t imagine her without her signature hair –
Prayers to Farrah and her family. What a brave and beautiful soul she is.
