I had embedded these videos when they
were first made available by MSNBC in my Farrah’s Story review post, but they were recently removed. The videos are available once again so I replaced them there and am posting them again here. I encourage all of you to watch it. Here’s my review of the documentary:

I just finished watching Farrah’s Story and I wanted to salute her for creating a great documentary. I read a few articles previous to the airing of the show that asked the question, “why would someone so notoriously private want to record such a personal experience and share it with the world on network television?” My initial thoughts were that she wanted to spread awareness of cancer and how it not only invades tissue, marrow, and organs, but also the lives of those diagnosed as well as their family and friends, and in Farrah’s case, her fans. Farrah’s story accomplished all of that. But, I think it also accomplished something else – something that, whether conscious or not, played a large role in motivating Farrah to make this documentary and then to share it with the general public.

Farrah seemed extremely agitated by the leak of her personal medical information and also with the paparazzi that appeared to lurk around every corner, desperate to get a shot of her with a cane, in a wheelchair or even on a stretcher. I think what infuriated her most about it, and rightly so, is that the tabloids’ presentation of her battle with cancer aspired only to show weakness. When people heard or read about Farrah Fawcett and her battle with cancer, the only images that they could reference were hospital and airport paparazzi photos on the covers of tabloids or on celebrity web sites. Farrah ripped those two-dimensional images right out of our brains and replaced them with the depth of a human narrative. There were moments of weakness, but Farrah was able to rescue her dignity by sharing her suffering with us in a manor that revealed a great deal of strength and grace. (It reminded me of Johnny Cash’s later recordings on American Records, which showed all of us the incredible spiritual strength that can reside in a body and voice that may appear weak on the surface)

      With all the news about Michael’s passing, Farrah’s passing has been somewhat quiet. I didn’t know she had cancer. I think what’s she’s done with information about her condition was a good idea. She ‘s reminding us how Famous stars are people too. With battles, struggles, hurts, pains, strengths, loving heart and endearing memories.

      This was so touching, to have someone dedicate their life to teach others the real battle of cancer is incredible. She will always be remembered in my heart as well as her family.

      Watching these videos shows an amazing woman full of strength and hope. She empowers people with her kind, caring, selfless voice. Just being a part of her journey through watching these will make you yearn to be a better person. Our daily struggles, really aren’t struggles at all, just mere speed bumps in our lives. My favorite quote from Farrah, that I pray to hold onto each day that I am given from this breath until me last is “Did I try my best today?” I am certain there will be days that the answer will be no, however just asking myself that question will give me a chance to say yes tomorrow. Thank you to her family for sharing these videos with the World. God bless you and keep you safe and sound.

      I cried more than once watching this documentary. Farrah fought her cancer to the end. It’s good to know they let her son, Redmond, visit and talk with her for 3 hours before she died. He was also given permission to attend the funeral.

      You could tell there was a strong bond between Redmond and Farrah. One other thing that is sad is that she finally agreed to marry Ryan after all these years but unfortunately when they tried to perform the ceremony, she couldn’t speak and say “I do,” so they had to call it off.

      She was a beautiful woman with a heart of gold. She loved Ryan and her son and her best friend who taped the documentary.

      I’m sure the angels opened their wings wide to welcome her into the holy land.

      God bless,
      donnaC
