Farrah Fawcett Shares Her Battle with Cancer

January 31st, 2008 // 6 Comments

Farrah Fawcett has been battling cancer for some time now and has been chronicling the process with a video camera, reports Entertainment Tonight. The “Charlie’s Angels” actress has collaborated with her best friend, Alanna Stewart, (seen in these pix with Farrah) and now ET is doing a multi-part series on Farrah’s treatments, including very personal video of Farrah’s trips to the hospital.

Fawcett initially started video-taping her doctor visits as a way to help her keep track of her treatment and according to Stewart, “We documented everything, the good, the bad and the ugly.” Farrah has been traveling to Germany for treatment for access to procedures that have not yet been legalized in the United States.

According to a source that spilled to Page Six, “She got $50,000 for it,”–it being the series on ET. Sadly, the star, who was initially diagnosed with anal cancer last year seems to have a dim prognosis, with her former flame, Ryan O’Neal revealing at a recent party that the actress was currently in Germany receiving treatment for a massive liver tumor.

Poor Farrah. I know that all cancer sucks, but anal cancer sounds horrific.

Please can you please share what treatments are out there, so many people need these alternative therapies, I know they are out there, I know they work, please Farrah, share?? please. god bless.

    Hi there, I have had two very close friends go to Germany and mexico for treatments and one thing is that the patient needs to have a very positive outlook through it all. If you are unable to afford alternative attention outside the US there are alternative options you have here in the states. Nothing is guaranteed no matter where you go to get the help but, as long as there is hope and determination to find and try other alternative means there is always a chance. That said I would love to share some info that I have read about if interested please contact me at darlenehorvath@hotmail.com

    I finished my conventional treatment of chemo and radiation for the same
    Anal Cancer. I am left with many problems and side effects from my treatment that no doctors in New York have any answers for.
    I would desperately like to know the name of the place and doctor in Germany that treats you. I need to go there as soon as possible. I know you know exactly what I am going through. I am desperate for an alternative treatment.
    I have been searching all over the internet for this information.
    Please Farrah help me…..
