As previously mentioned, the documentary goes into detail about Fawcett’s fight with cancer. After being diagnosed with anal cancer, Fawcett decided to film her cancer battle. This subsequently turned into the documentary Farrah’s Story. This aired on NBC shortly before her death.

She was first diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. She was then declared cancer-free in 2007 after doctors had removed the tumor. However, the cancer returned a year later and had spread to her liver. She continued to fight the disease until the very end, seeking every treatment she possibly could. She died on June 25th, 2009.

Alana Stewart, Farrah’s friend who also helped produce Farrah’s Story, says “Farrah was glad she went public. She got thousands of letters from people thanking her for her courage in coming forward to say she had anal cancer. That was her thing- to fight the fight.”

Stewart continues, “Farrah didn’t intend to lose this battle. That was her intention. She was going to beat cancer, and she was going to go out and really crusade for more research and prevention and awareness. Life took a different turn. Unfortunately, she never got the chance.”
