Farrah Fawcett's family and friends are bracing for the worst as the actress clings to life after a three-year battle with anal cancer.

The former Charlie's Angels pin-up was re-admitted to a hospital in California earlier this week, and reports suggest that a priest was summoned to the actress' bedside in intensive care on Wednesday to read the devout Catholic her last rites.

And TV news show Extra has learned her 90-year-old father, James, is racing to his daughter's side, after being told she hasn't got long to live.

The 62-year-old actress' partner, Ryan O'Neal, has been trying to secure a temporary jail release for the couple's son Redmond -- who is serving time in a rehab jail on drugs charges -- so he can join family and friends at his mother's bedside.

In April, Fawcett was hospitalized for internal bleeding not directly related to her ongoing cancer battle. She recently learned the disease had spread to her liver and underwent chemotherapy.
