Farrah Fawcett is a beautiful, timeless, ageless, intelligent actress and artist. In this brave documentary, she is battling cancer. In her words with the cameras rolling despite seeing the painful side of cancer, Farrah is nothing but brave in this battle. It is courageous to see her say goodbye to her famous hair with class and dignity. It's hard and can bring you to tears. For those of us who have watched Farrah go from being a Charlie's Angel to a star, it's like watching a family member or friend go through this and it's hard because you're right there with her. Farrah's best friend, Alana Stewart (former wife of Rod Stewart CBE and George Hamilton) is there with her most of the way as is of course, her beloved Ryan O'Neal who just about falls apart with the thought of losing her. Farrah's battle against cancer has taken her to Germany for a treatment not yet approved in the United States. Her cancer battle exposed UCLA's negligence and violation of patient's confidentiality. Somehow the tabloids knew about her condition before her own family. It's heartbreaking but Farrah becomes more real to the audience as another human being. She battles cancer with such bravery, courage, and strength that some of us don't have. She has a yearning to live her life again without cancer. She is not only an actress, artist but an activist as well. Most of all, Farrah has played a survivor and she is one herself. It's times like these that I wished that James Lipton had interviewed her for the Actors Studio because she has a lot to share with aspiring artists and actors out there. I was thrilled to see the original Charlie's Angels as friends not just co-stars. Both her co-stars, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson, battled cancer and won. God Bless You, Farrah. We're all praying for your miracle too.
