Farrah Fawcett -In April 1976, a poster company Pro Arts Inc., that had started out making anti-war posters, started to hear about a young up-and-coming beauty named Farrah Fawcett doing Wella Balsam shampoo commercials. Fawcett arranged to have Bruce McBroom, a freelance photographer with whom she had worked with before, do the shoot. McBroom took the pictures at Farrah's poolside Bel Air, California home!! --On September 22, 1976, the first episode of Fawcett playing the character Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie's Angels was aired. Around the same time, her swimsuit poster was released. It went on to sell a still-unrivaled 12 million copies and she became known for her tousled hair and bright smile. The hairstyle went on to become an international trend, with women sporting a "Farah-Do" or "Farrah Hair" and the hairstyle was even spoofed in various media... (born February 2, 1947) is an American actress. She was a noted pop culture figure whose hairstyle was emulated by millions of young women, and a sex symbol for millions of young men in the 1970s and 1980s. She went on to become a critically accepted actress, appearing in television movies (The Burning Bed, Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story and sometimes unsympathetic Small Sacrifices)...Fawcett was married to Lee Majors, star of The Six Million Dollar Man, from 19731982, though the two separated in 1979. During this time, she was known as Farrah Fawcett-Majors....From 1982 to the present, Fawcett has been involved romantically with actor Ryan O'Neal. The relationship produced a son, Redmond O'Neal, who was born in 1985.

This is such sad news. I don't have alot of good feelings about Ryan O'Neal because of the ways in which he treated her and his daughter Tatum, but I'm truly saddened by the news that Farrah may not make it.

Yes, so sad. I'm sure so many of us will remember her from the poster.

It just cannot be! I know I heard the reports over the last couple years...

Yep, I had the poster - That Smile, That Hair... Charlie's Angels. It's like hearing sad news about an old girlfriend. I loved them all in their own way - each were unique and beautiful.

Farrah was gorgeous and I was happy her acting was later recognized for a couple of her serious roles because the press at times were so mean spirited towards her. She was the Baywatch star of the 1970s.

She will always be forever young.

Oh the memories of my teenage years. I had that poster...as well as posters of Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith...they will always be my favorite angels. I remember my dad's eyes popping when he saw the Farrah poster hanging on my wal. I laugh about it now.

Farrah Fawcett is being treated for anal cancer that has spread to her liver and has been hospitalized for a complication from a routine treatment, a producer who worked with the actress and her doctor said Monday.

In separate phone interviews with The Associated Press, Fawcett's producer and her doctor said that Fawcett is in a Los Angeles hospital, recovering from complications from a medical procedure in Germany, and is not on death's door, as the producer put it.

She had a minor procedure. That procedure led to a small amount of bleeding into a muscle in her abdominal wall, which created a hematoma a sac of blood that caused pressure and pain, said her Los Angeles cancer specialist, Dr. Lawrence Piro. It was a simple procedure and a standard one, although Fawcett has also pursued experimental treatments in Germany, he added.

She's on the mend and will be going home very shortly, said her producer, Craig Nevius. She's doing fantastic. Her fight goes on. ... She's not going anywhere anytime soon.

However, confirmation that the cancer had spread to such a distant site was dire news. The 62-year-old Charlie's Angels star was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006, and originally was treated at The Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center with chemotherapy and radiation not surgery as some have reported, Nevius said.

She was declared in remission on Feb 2, 2007, but three months later, scans showed not only had it recurred, it metastasized to her liver, Nevius said.

The latest treatment in Germany tried to address the cancer's spread to that organ, he said.

Nevius would not say where in Germany she was being treated, just that it was a clinic affiliated with some hospitals. He also would not give details on her treatments there, but said media reports that she was getting stem cell treatments were false.

It's never had anything to do with stem cells, or alternative treatments such as shark cartilage, coffee enemas or unproven detoxification diets, Nevius said.

It's much more scientific than that. It's not a fringe treatment, he said, and the doctors have multiple, multiple degrees.

An upcoming documentary on which Fawcett has worked for several years, A Wing and a Prayer, co-produced with Nevius and others, will air on NBC soon and give details, he said.

After the procedure in Germany, Piro said Fawcett flew back to Los Angeles because she was eager to go home. In a statement released earlier, Piro said Fawcett was using a wheelchair because it was painful for her to walk. That pain, which was coming from the hematoma, had nothing directly to do with the cancer, Piro said.

She remains in good spirits with her usual sense of humor, he added. She's been in great shape her whole life and has an incredible resolve and an incredible resilience.

Nevius said Fawcett is expected to leave the hospital in a few days. He said her support system includes former partner Ryan O'Neal, her father and Charlie's Angels co-stars Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith.

Let me tell you what she's not, Nevius said. As previously reported by everybody, she's not unconscious. She is not on death's door. The family has not gathered to say goodbye.

Here is a video I put on the YRT MySpace page regarding her treatment in Germany February 2008. Don't ask me why I didn't post it here, I must have thought I did.

That poster came out when I was in the seventh grade. My school banned it from students' lockers.
