Farrah Fawcett Kicks Cancer in the Anus

Wow, I get to write two stories with good news in one day! First, Patrick Dempsey’s wife gives birth to two healthy twin boys, and now the news that Charlie’s Angel Farrah Fawcett received a clean bill of health from UCLA Med after battling anal cancer for the past four months. (My happiness is tempered by the fact that I did have to write something about Paris Hilton earlier today, but I’ll get over it.)

Farrah, who just turned 60, was told by her doctors that her “prognosis is excellent.” Says Fawcett:

I have been on a journey for the past four months and during this time received a tremendously aggressive treatment which doctors initially warned me would be the most difficult fight of my life. I was told they needed me to ‘bite the bullet’ and that would require great courage and unfailing determination. In the face of excruciating pain and uncertainty, I never lost hope and it never occurred to me to stop fighting—not ever.

I hope that my news might offer some level of inspiration to others who unfortunately must continue to fight the disease. So to those who are still struggling toward their own victory, stay determined, ‘fight the fight’ and I will keep you and your families in my thoughts and prayers.
