What an inspiration, Fawcett is amazing....
19 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not read or watch tabloid shows so I had only briefly heard on CNN of Ms. Fawcett's illness. Last night I watched this show (it was only on twice, and cable should re-air it so a larger audience is educated).

She is truly amazing, and strong of spirit. Her cancer is difficult to treat, and we see her taking trips to Germany where they have more advanced cell-isolating treatments, and better cancer care. Needless to compare this to her horrific experience with UCLA and an employee selling her private medical information for profit.

How much our health care system is in a shambles, is clearly reflected by her experience. Laws do not protect the patient. Patients are abused regularly in nursing homes, my father passed away in one as they neglected to feed him, and give him physical therapy.

Back to Farrah- she still looks wonderful and is a true fighter, her friend Alana Stewart filmed this, and is a devoted friend and confidante of her long-time friend. Ryan O'Neal also seems very broken up, and while the situation is very dire, it is incredible that audiences are finally being educated on what these people are living through.

This is truly an important film, and those of us who remember Farrah when she was younger will empathize,(we see graphic footage of her losing, then shaving her long tresses, which were her trademark at one time). Also,especially if we have experienced this tragedy in our own families, and dealt with the horrific hospice care provided to the less than wealthy.

Farrah, you still look incredible, and your spirit is a true inspiration. 10/10.
