“After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away,” O’Neal said. “Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world.”
Farrah Fawcett, was most famous for her role on “Charlie’s Angels.”
Her struggle was documented a few months ago in the television documentary “Farrah’s Story.” Fawcett sought cures in Germany as well as the United States.
In the documentary, Fawcett was seen shaving off most of her trademark locks before chemotherapy could claim them. Toward the end, she’s seen huddled in bed, barely responding to a visit from her son.
Fawcett attended the University of Texas at Austin. Fellow students voted her one of the 10 most beautiful people on the campus . Her photos were potted by a movie publicist and the rest is history.
