Actor Farrah  dies of cancer

The star, who became famous for her sex symbol status and blonde hair, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. Although doctors believed it had been successfully treated, the illness returned in May 2007 and had recently spread to her liver.
Ryan O’Neal, the longtime companion who returned to her side when she became ill, was with her. Her fiance O’Neal and best friend, actress Alana Stewart were with her during her final hours.

O’Neal was planning to wed Farrah, a wish, which will remain incomplete now.
In an interview earlier this week he had said: “I’ve asked her to marry me, again, and she’s agreed.”

“After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away. 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,” O’Neal said.
