Farrah Fawcet (1947-2009)

Today marked another day to show in the mortality of men by the death of famous icon – Michael Jackson. Fans worldwide mourn his death and remember his songs. Radio stations have aired all his songs non-stop today. Some might recall his eccentricity during the recent years with the infamous trial on child molestation. But whatever it is, people will “hu ha” for a few days and they will continue with their lives.

That’s life.

Sorry Michael but since your death has overshadowed Fawcett, this entry is dedicated to her.

I would like to highlight another icon that died today. She is Farah Fawcett. She was one of the original Charlie’s Angels. Google about her and you'll find many articles. I just want to highlight this very strong woman who was determined to live till the very end. In fact, if I am asked to be a blond, I would want to be like her.

I find that she was a very determined woman. She found out that she was diagnosis with anal cancer in 2006. After undergoing all the treatment, she was diagnosis cancer-free during her 60th birthday. Imagine that, 60 years old and still going strong; looking great.

Unfortunately, the cancer reoccur and spread. During this period, she managed to document her battle with cancer in a 2-hour documentary, Farrah's story. It is sad that in the end, her lovely golden locks were all gone from the chemo. However, I pray she has moved on to a better life.. with God. :)

Excerpt from wikipedia: "Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. on June 25, 2009, in the intensive care unit of Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, with O'Neal and Stewart by her side. Her death was partially overshadowed in the media by the news that singer Michael Jackson had been taken to hospital in a critical condition just four hours after she had died, and his death later that day."
