Fawcett's Cancer-Battle Special to Air Next Week

May 06, 2009 | 5:04am EDT

Farrah Fawcett's cancer battle is to be the subject of a TV news special next week.

The actress has been battling anal cancer, which recently spread to her liver, and has suffered complications from an unrelated medical procedure performed in Germany.

Her two-year fight has been captured on video by best friend Alana Stewart, and now the footage will make up a two-hour special, called Farrah's Story.

Fawcett's on/off partner Ryan O'Neal and her former Charlie's Angels co-stars Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson will appear in the program.

The actress says, "This film is very personal. At the time, I didn’t know if anybody would ever see it. But, at some point, the footage took on a life of its own and dictated that it be seen."
