Farrah Fawcett Loses Battle To Cancer
Farrah Fawcett, famous sex symbol of the hit 1976 series “Charlies Angels,” passed away today in Los Angeles at 9:38 A.M. Fawcett had been battling anal cancer since being diagnosed in early 2006, and was 62 when she passed away. She wanted to tell the story in her own terms, so just six weeks ago a TV broadcast showed a video diary she made, “Farrah’s Story,” chronicling her battle with cancer and her final months.
Friends and family were by her side, in what was said to be a “very peaceful death.”
It’s times like these when I ponder on all those philosophical questions pertaining to the functions of life. It doesn’t matter how rich, beautiful, smart, successful, or kind you may be; when it’s your time to go, you go. This past year alone I’ve lost a lot of people who were close to me. Life’s too short; live, love, laugh, and make the most of it.
