Farrah Fawcett Foundation

Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the death of Farrah Fawcett. She lost her battle with cancer, and when Michael Jackson died soon after, her passing was eclipsed by that media firestorm. I was a huge Farrah fan as a kid, obsessed with Charlie’s Angels, an entire wall of my room covered in posters of the Angels, seeing any other show or movie any of them did. (I later had the opportunity to work with Shelley Hack and felt like I knew her already–I’m telling you, I was an Angels freak. And yes, now that you ask, I did, indeed have, and love, Cheryl Ladd’s albums.)

As testament to tomorrow’s anniversary, The Farrah Fawcett Foundation will be officially launched. Farrah started the foundation before her passing, and her friend Alana Stewart along with other high-powered advisers and board members, are continuing her plans and dreams to help in the fight against anal cancer and pediatric cancers. Farrah flew back and forth to Germany for alternative treatments not available in the United States, and her access to alternative therapy is what many credit for her being able to be as strong as she was. The Foundation’s mission is to provide funding for alternative methods of cancer research, clinical trials, prevention, and awareness.

  1. Fawcett’s fight against cancer rages beyond her death…

    Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Farrah Fawcett’s death a year ago was the top story for only a few hours, quickly eclipsed by shocking news that Michael Jackson had died. Jackson arrived in an ambulance at UCLA Medical Center three miles away and jus…

  2. FARRAH FAWCETT : SOURIRE PERCANT

    Farrah Fawcett, frêle et radieuse incarnation de la féminité à la face hyper sexuée d’où, paradoxalement, émanait une chasteté quasi angélique, créature magnétique à large dentition contribuant à faire de chaque sourire un pur ravissement, rêve incarné dans une chevelure luxuriante et un visage éclatant est morte en tant que mythe durablement momifié par la renommée certes, mais principalement en simple vieille peau qu’elle était devenue…

    Ce parfait produit d’une Amérique superficielle, artificielle, télévisuelle n’en fut pas moins dans sa jeunesse une authentique beauté, les fautes de goût de sa toilette yankee n’occultant point les charmes innés de sa nature.

    Blonde, charmeuse, séraphique, cette Eve typiquement texane fut tout aussi spécifiquement américaine dans la déchéance de sa beauté… Qu’importe ! Ses laideurs tardives ne feront jamais oublier sa gloire révolue tant il est vrai qu’elles furent plus éphémères encore. Farrah Fawcett aura vieilli avec un masque de grande douleur, celui du cancer bien sûr mais également celui de la Beauté devenue Hideur. Née sous le souffle de Vénus, elle finit ses jours sous le signe du crabe, avec pour uniques parures la ride et le sanglot, derniers cosmétiques déposés sur son front par la Camarde…

    La chute vers la tombe n’en fut que plus vertigineuse.

    On a de la compassion pour cette défunte si belle sur nos écrans, si épouvantable sous la stèle.

    En ce monde toute beauté est vouée à la putréfaction.

    Toutefois Farrah Fawcett aura emporté l’essentiel dans la fosse : sa superbe dentition qui, comme ses ossements, pendant des siècles témoigneront crûment, mais secrètement, de son passage sur Terre.

    Mais surtout, et c’est là la force et la consolation du poète qui partout ne voit que le beau, je crois que depuis sa sépulture le visage décharné de Farrah Fawcett -visage devenu crâne- définitivement dirigé vers le ciel, figé en direction de l’infini avec son superbe alignement de dents carnassières, continue de charmer l’Univers.

    En adressant un sourire éternel aux étoiles.

  5. The first contract signed in late 1992 between these two company, but it isn’t laster long.
    In their quest to pay off debt, some people neglect other
    important goals, such as saving for significant events like buying a home, going to
    college, or saving for retirement. Besides, wineries change hands, while
    the founding dates on their labels do not.
