Farrah Fawcett has slipped into a coma

Farah Fawcett has always been a hero of mine.  From her antics as an Angel which I watched with pre-teen glee to her outspoken advocacy for under-represented causes like her role in “The Burning Bed” which garnered her an Emmy Nomination.  Flying to Germany is never a cake walk and I can’t imagine having to do it while in late stage rectal cancer.

I wish she could have gone to the Los Angeles Hospital for Advanced Stem Cell Application (LAHASCA)…but no such place exists.  She was always pushing the envelop and I applaud her setting an example and going to Germany for stem cells that are not available in the US.

Such a shame that someone loved by so many and with the financial means and the knowledge of what was required, had to leave the country to get medical treatment.

According to several resources, Farrah Fawcett has been in hospital for day in the Los Angeles area, where she has reportedly slipped into unconsciousness and dying of cancer. According to several resources, Farrah Fawcett has been in hospital since Thursday, where she has reportedly slipped into unconsciousness and dying of cancer.

The 62-year-old was diagnosed with anal cancer three years ago. Though in 2007 she joyously declared that it was in remission, a malignant polyp re-emerged in the same spot just a few months later. She recently returned from Germany, where she could legally get controversial embryonic stem cell treatments.

Farrah had been filming her fight versus the potentially deadly disease for a TV series called ‘A Wing and Prayer’ and wants other people to learn from her experience with living with the illness.

The 24-year-old son of acting couple Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett pleaded innocent to drug charges last month in a separate case involving his father. Redmond and Ryan O’Neal were arrested after police allegedly discovered methamphetamines in their house after a routine probation visit, stemming from Redmond’s previous drug conviction. The elder O’Neal has since pleaded guilty to felony drug possession and was ordered to join an 18-month drug deferment program.

And as if things couldn’t get worse for the family, Ryan Redmond was driving a friend to visit an inmate at the Pitchess Detention Center South when they were stopped around 9:30 a.m. on Sunday at a routine security checkpoint.

The police have arrested him on charges of possessing a controlled substance, and bringing narcotics into a secured jail facility.

He remains behind bars after his bail was set at 25,000 dollars, reports Contactmusic.
