Actress talks for first time about anger over leaked medical information.

One thing Farrah Fawcett would have appreciated during the course of her very public, 2 1/2-year-battle with cancer: privacy. But that is the one thing she never received.

Lack of privacy makes Fawcett’s battle tougher- msnbc.com

Thanks John.
This was done back in August and was not published until now.

The funny thing is that Farrah & her friend Alana Stewart was on one of the celebrity news shows, like Inside Edition saying the same thing but a shorter version.

Quote:
Before condition worsened
As for withholding her August remarks until now, the Times reports it was acting under the request of Fawcett and her rep, to connect the interview to the upcoming TV special. "There will be a good time, and what I have to say then will be more important," Fawcett said in August, before her condition deteriorated.

Still, back then, the actress said he wanted to serve as an example whose health battle would offer a lasting effect — especially in the areas of protecting patient confidentiality and promoting alternative treatments for cancer.

Said Fawcett, "I'm holding onto the hope that there is some reason that I got cancer and there is something – that may not be very clear to me right now but that I will do."

If she has produced a special scheduled to air on Friday it would seem she is no longer concerned about the lack of privacy.

I'm certain it is awful to have people investigating your medical care or anything else about your life.

From what I've read, they are keeping her comfortable.
The cancer is in her liver, usually there isn't much time after that.

With my dad they found something (they couldn't confirm because his type of cancer) and he was gone in a month.

I'd be surprised if she survives much longer

My brother's cancer spread quickly after it reached his liver. Almost a year now and my mother has not done well. He was in his early 50's. He was released from the hospital for hospice care the week before Memorial Day last year. The Hospice nurses did all they could but it was too late. By Sunday night we had to call the paramedics and return to the hospital. He died around noon on Monday.

So I hope Farrah has a peaceful passing. It is not a time when anyone should have to worry about anything.
