When she was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006, Fawcett, who inspired millions of women to mimic her feather-cut hairstyle, battled with all of her strength.
After being pronounced cancer-free in 2007, the actress and model later learned that the disease had spread to her liver.
“There is a purpose behind all of this. She states in a documentary that her closest friend, Alana Stewart, created at her request and which tracked her battle with cancer: “It is a test to my very core, to my strength, my intellect, my spirit and my soul.
At the age of 62, Fawcett passed away at 2:28 a.m. on June 25, 2009, in the emergency room of Providence St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California. The day before, at 2:26 p.m., music icon Michael Jackson passed away. Her passing occurred nearly precisely 12 hours later.
In the movie, she claims she “won’t ever compromise” on her “want to live. I’m not going to sleep softly that night.
Both domestically and abroad, Fawcett sought experimental therapies.
She was brave, according to her doctor.
Texas is where Fawcett was born. With her attractive appearance and well-known feather cut, she relocated to California to seek a modelling career.
With 12 million copies sold, a 1976 poster featuring Fawcett in a red bathing suit is the most popular poster ever.
