Actress Farrah Fawcett died today at age 62, having fought anal cancer since 2006.
People reports that Fawcett died at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., where she was being treated for complications from anal cancer. Her partner, Ryan O’Neal, was among those with her when she died.
Fawcett went public with her struggle against anal cancer in a documentary that aired on NBC in May.
In that documentary, Farrah said, “Cancer is a disease that is mysterious, headstrong, and makes its own rules, and mine to this date is incurable. I know that everyone will die eventually, but I do not want to die of this disease. I want to stay alive.”
