Farrah’s Story - Farrah Fawcett’s Gift to the World

In a time when racy photo scandals and reality TV affairs seem to dominate media airwaves, it’s comforting to know that some of Hollywood’s most respected celebrities are using their fame to help inspire others.

Farrah FawcettFarrah Fawcett, one of the most popular actresses from the 1970’s and 80’s, was diagnosed with anal cancer in October of 2006 and has been documenting her struggles with the vicious disease for the past few years.

The Charlie’s Angel icon allowed the cameras to document her bitter battle, and viewers will get the chance to see how this violent illness has taken its toll on Farrah, her friends and her family.

Farrah’s longtime love, Ryan O’Neal, also opens up to cameras in the 2-hour documentary  scheduled to air Friday on NBC.

In an exclusive interview with Katie Couric, Ryan tearfully explains how hope for a recovery is slowing fading:

“I kinda wish that she would go to sleep. Just go to sleep. That’s not my right but I just don’t see how she could be happy.”

When asked if he was mentally prepared to let Farrah go, Ryan quietly replied with “semi... I think. I don’t know...I think. I let her go weeks and weeks ago but she came back...I keep promising to take her to Italy, she says ‘I’ll drive.’”

The documentary had finished filming months ago but Farrah was waiting for the right time to her reveal her gift to the world. This Friday, two days after it was revealed that Farrah had stopped treatment and only had a few days left, the documentary will air.

How will Farrah’s documentary change what people think of the girl with the luscious locks, posing in the red bathing suit?

“You really don’t know who the girl in that bathing suit was...but this one, you will know.”

Farrah's strength is extremely inspiring and our prayers are with Farrah, her family and her friends.

Farrah's Story - shot by Farrah and her good friend Alana Stewart - will air on Friday on NBC. Check out Alana Stewart's and Ryan O'Neal's interview with Katie Couric at PEOPLE.com.

After seeing Farrah Fawcett's documentary I am convinced that she is an extremely genuine person; it was wonderful of her to step outside of herself to make this documentary
