Fawcett Clings To Life?

Farrah Fawcett is battling a rare form of cancer and rumors have her in various stages of the fight.

Farrah Fawcett at the 2004 MTV Video AwardsFarrah Fawcett was the poster child (check that, woman) of the ‘70s. Everyone wanted her hairdo that made The Rachel seem like small potatos.

It is a sad day in the Charlie's Angels universe to hear the sixty-two-year old has been hospitalized in Los Angeles since April 2. Fawcett has been battling cancer since 2006 and has also had to battle exaggerated stories in the press.

Any time we hear about her in the news, similar to Patrick Swayze, we can't help but offer our prayers first and foremost and then wonder how truly exaggerated are the stories?

Farrah, however, has hope according to her physician. He also said a photo of her appearing in a wheelchair was due to having a small procedure done in Germany.

Fawcett left for the airport soon after the procedure and wanted to go home rather than recuperating in the hospital for a few days. Could you imagine taking a nine hour flight right after a procedure? Well, the procedure caused some bleeding in her abdomen resulting in pain. She had problems walking, hence the wheelchair.

Now she's able to walk and is cracking jokes. Farrah's cancer went into remission and then returned two years ago in May. The actress has undergone chemotherapy and aggressive alternative treatments and is expected to go home in a few days.

Farrah I had anal cancer 10 yrs ago at the age of 43. I'm 52 yrs old now and still suffer for the effects of the disease. With radiation and chemo it was the worse pain I have ever endured.

We are all losing the fight. Most of us just don't accept it. God Bless, Farrah. May you find joy in each day you're alive here on earth.

As someone who has cancer, I have never been 'hospitalized for a week for a minor procedure' - am wondering what is really going on with Farrah? I wish her (and all with this nasty disease) only the best!
