Farrah Fawcett's 91-year-old father James is flying to his daughter's Los Angles home as her cancer battle comes to an end
Farrah Fawcett's 91-year-old father is making a mercy dash to say goodbye to his dying daughter.
The former 'Charlie's Angels' star, whose anal cancer has spread to her liver, is losing her battle prompting her ageing dad James is flying to her home in Los Angles to say his final farewell.
The 61-year-old star's long-term partner Ryan O'Neal has revealed she is no longer receiving treatment because the illness has become terminal.
He said: "She stays in bed now. The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment. The treatment has pretty much ended."
Ryan, 68, also spoke of his fear at having to live his life without his lover.
He emotionally added: "It's a love story. I just don't know how to play this one. I won't know this world without her. Cancer is an insidious enemy."
Ryan says one of the cruelest parts of Farrah's illness is the loss of her iconic golden hair.
He said: "Her famous hair is gone. I have it at home. She didn't care. I rub her head. It's kind of fun, actually, this great, tiny little head. How she carried all that hair I'll never know. She doesn't have a vanity about it."
Farrah was initially diagnosed with cancer in 2006 - originally thought to be colon cancer.
Although doctors believed it had been successfully treated, the illness returned in May 2007.
