Farrah Fawcett's final days
Cancer-stricken Farrah Fawcett, the disease now spread throughout her body, is bedridden and bald her famous blond tresses now gone as she fights for life.
"She stays in bed now," her longtime love Ryan O'Neal said yesterday on People.com. "The doctors see that she's comfortable ... The treatment has pretty much ended."
Farrah, 62, has battled anal cancer since 2006. Ryan, linked with the "Charlie's Angels" star for nearly three decades, said the disease has spread to her liver and other body parts.
Farrah is fed through one of the IVs hooked up to the three-time Emmy-nominated actress, Ryan told People. She spends much of her time asleep.
A teary-eyed Ryan said Farrah, whose weight was reportedly down to 86 pounds, never once complained about her fate.
"Farrah has never, ever talked about how unfair it is," Ryan said. "There was always a courage there, and a quiet dignity. Farrah never changed."
O'Neal, the Oscar-nominated star of "Love Story" and "Paper Moon" confirmed Fawcett had made a half-dozen trips to Germany seeking medical treatment unavailable in the U.S.
Their son, Redmond, visited Farrah last month after he was given a three-hour pass from jail.
Farrah is unaware of his recent arrest for heroin possession, Ryan said.
She's also without her signature blond hair.
"The hair is gone," Ryan said. "Her famous hair. I have it at home. ... How she carried all that hair, I'll never know."
