Farrah Fawcett was read the last rites, if the rumors about Farrah Fawcett’s last rites and worsening health are true. Fans hoped Farrah Fawcett wouldn’t get the last rites for some time, even with all the bad stories about her health. But the Internet has gotten hold of the rumor that Farrah Fawcett got the last rites last night, and that her family is preparing to say their final goodbyes. If Farrah Fawcett did get the last rites, then her heartbreaking story may be close to a bitter end.
The rumors were broken by the TV show Extra, and have now circulated all over the country. Farrah Fawcett was reported to have been readmitted to a California hospital, as her fight against anal cancer continues to get tougher. Further reports had her loved ones gather at Fawcett’s bedside, after being told she may not have long to live.
Most ominously, reports had Farrah Fawcett receiving the last rites from a priest. That would be the surest sign that Fawcett, a devout Catholic, is preparing to enter the next life.
All year long, Farrah Fawcett and her fight against cancer has made countless headlines, and brought countless well wishers to her cause. Fawcett went all around Europe to find a cure for her cancer, only to get worse after her return to America.
Her documentary about her fight against cancer became one of the most talked about TV events of the year. Since then, new reports about Fawcett’s health have broken out every few weeks or so, along with reports about how the Fawcett family is dealing with it.
Just a little while ago, long time companion Ryan O’Neal was reported as saying that he finally wants to wed Fawcett. The two have been together for about 25 years, but never actually tied the knot.
With these rumors of Fawcett getting the last rites, and new speculation that she could be taken soon, getting married at the last minute would likely wring even more tears from their fans. It has already inspired a few comparisons to one of O’Neal’s most famous movies, the tearjerker Love Story.
Death pretended to take Ali McGraw from O’Neal in that film, as love refused to apologize. But things are just a little more real this time, as everyone now fears for Farrah Fawcett’s life more than ever.
Despite these reports of the last rites, Fawcett’s publicist could only say that she is “being treated for her condition.”
