Farrah’s fighting cancer

Farrah Fawcett has been diagnosed with cancer. The Charlie's Angels' star has already received radiation treatment for her intestinal disease and is now preparing for chemotherapy and surgery. In a statement the actress asks, "Please respect my privacy at this challenging time." The 59-year-old's illness may put a hamper on plans for a one-off Charlie’s Angels’ reunion timed to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1970s crime-fighting show. The trio – which includes Kate Jackson (57) and Jaclyn Smith (60) – reunited recently at the Emmy Awards, where they made a tearful tribute to show boss Aaron Spelling who died in June.
