NBC released a documentary tonight called Farrah’s Story. The documentary surrounded Farrah Fawcett’s treatments for cancer. The long and winding challenging road. Ryan O’Neal, Farrah’s longtime boyfriend, gives the nod, it’s now or never, she’s dying.
On September 2006 Farrah Fawcett’s diagnosis was of concern. Shot by Rod Stewart’s ex-wife Alana Hamilton, Farrah’s Story is in the works. Farrah traveled 6 times to Germany for treatment, the camera caught the spring moment in 2007. From there the world would catch a different view into the fawn character of Farrah Fawcett and the love that Farrah shared with Ryan O’Neal and their son, Redmond.
Redmond, 24, Farrah’s son, visits Farrah while in shackles, Farrah had no idea, she was sedated to avoid any inner pain contributed from the growing cancer which spread to her liver. Redmond is serving time for drug charges. Redmond tried to pull it together for a moment when climbing onto Farrah’s bed, just so Farrah could see his face. Farrah viewed as immobile and partially incoherent, Redmond figures it out, she’s dying. A gut wrenching moment for any person to watch as Redmond hides his tears with a slight cry. Redmond sees his mother for the last time alive as he is carted back to jail.
Farrah is known as Ryan’s long time girlfriend and Lee Majors ex-wife, but had ended up with Ryan by her side during her battle with cancer. Farrah found support in Ryan. Ryan is torn.
Ryan recently has told People magazine that he “won’t know this world without her. It’s a love story” then continued, “I just don’t know how to play this one.”
As Farrah once smiled, swam, played about in light humorous moments, it was hard to see her quite the opposite, especially when she has touched many within her accomplishments. For more on Farrah Fawcett’s accomplishments visit Remembering Farrah.
Farrah always remained strong through life, endured the hassles, trials and trivia of treatment with inner strength.
You imagine a brilliant smile, a sheer whisper, a religious charm, and a one of a kind heart of Farrah Fawcett, then Farrah becomes bed ridden, sedated, struggling through much pain, closer to that last breath, closer to her most important belief and dream – – heaven.
Farrah began losing her trade mark, her beautiful hair began falling out before becoming bed ridden. This is when we fall in love with Farrah all over again. When her hat was removed, she was mostly bald and so playful about it. She had shaved her hair as many usually do for treatment reasons, as this never stopped her from living.
A tear reached these eyes, it’s hard to watch this angel spread her wings.
During Farrah’s Story, Farrah mentions that America needs to research different types of cancer and consider alternative treatment just as other countries do. Farrah has traveled to seek care that could be found in America within the future, granted that enough would request the measure. A strong message from an incredible documented film on the long road of Farrah Fawcett’s decline.
Whether Dr. Peter Jepson-Young, who also had recorded his death by way of CBC-TV or Jane Goody, who had the press record her declines with cervical cancer, if they did not get through to others of how important it is to follow the lead of other countries with alternative medicine and treatment, that perhaps their message can end up saving lives. The Farrah Fawcett documentary may also encourage how important it is to get tested and to consider alternative medicine and treatment.
Farrah’s Story, a story that could save someone’s life.
The film producer, Craig Nevius shared that he was squeezed out of the making of Farrah’s Story and that Ryan O’Neal threatened to kill him when they disagreed on the issue. Craig has been in Farrah’s life for quite some time as you read in the beginning of Farrah’s battle, compliments of People’s 2006 article release.
Craig filed the lawsuit for damages and stated that he was “left out” as viewed through Showbiz Tonight. Spokesperson for Farrah’s Story responds as you can view this on ETOnline.com. Ryan’s opinion is that of “deplorable and disgusting.” As Farrah is facing her suffering, many people are angry and outraged over Craig’s lawsuit.
What do I think? As for Craig Nevius, stop killing court time with your juvenile lawsuit.
As for Ryan O’Neal, friends and family support means everything.
As for Farrah Fawcett, I will always like her works, always have, however the personality that comes with Farrah Fawcett is her best feature, and one that encourages to best in people.
