Sad news: Farrah Fawcett passed away today at St. John’s Health Center in Los Angeles after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was 62.
The Charlie’s Angels star revealed she had anal cancer in 2006. The following year, she held a press conference to announce she was in remission, but her cancer returned shortly after.
After undergoing alternative treatments in Germany, the actress was treated at an L.A.-area hospital in April when her cancer spread to her liver.
“I’m holding on to the hope that there is some reason I got cancer and that there is something, that may not be very clear to me right now, that I will do,” Farrah said during an interview for the documentary Farrah’s Story chronicling her three-year battle with the disease.
Farrah is survived by her son, Redmond O’Neal, 24, and a truly enviable hair legacy.
May her feathered ‘do live on forever!
