As she got older and even more classy, people respected her. When she got anal cancer a few years back, people were sad. Heck, it just wasn't fair.
What I admired about her was that she was determine to give a face to a form of cancer that many women find to be embrassing. She gave women hope in fighting a disease that some couldn't even bring themselves to say.
Farrah fought her cancer like a freight train.
I watched her special on NBC a few months ago and saw how much she was struggling. I figured if anyone could pull through cancer it would be here. She's a Charlies Angel.. darn it!
But sadly, today she didn't.
It has been a very sad day for everyone who grew up in the 70's and 80's. Today two of our childhood icons passed away. And while I do believe with all of my heart, that no matter how freakish Michael Jackson was, his death is a tremendous loss for music and the world.
But it seems that his death has now overshadowed the fact that we have lost another great today, a woman with unpresidented strength and grace. On Yahoo.com Farrah Fawcett's death is behind some NBA draft pick who changed his mind about going pro.
Seriously?? Is that really more important?
On MSN she is at the bottom of the page.
People.com. She isn't even in the "Major Stories" section.
Really? The death of an icon ranks right up there with Sarah Jessica and Matthew Brodrick taking home there kids from the hospital.
I think not.
So lets not forget about everyones Angel.
Miss Farrah Fawett
