Alana Stewart and Farrah Fawcett were inseparable since they first met in the 1970s. Over the course of 30 years, they supported each other through the trials of Hollywood life, raised their families together, and remained as close as two friends could be. But in fall 2006, their relationship was tested as never before when Farrah was diagnosed with aggressive rectal cancer. Given six months to live, the beautiful actress vowed to beat the disease; Alana vowed to help her. Relentless in their pursuit of a cure, they travelled around the country and the world, seeking out alternative and experimental therapies. During that quest, Alana kept a diary of their experience fighting the disease and recorded cherished memories of their years together. Now, to honor her friend's grace and courage in the face of death, and to celebrate their enduring bond, Alana shares these intimate and personal diaries with us all. As she chronicles Farrah's story, Alana reveals her own spiritual journey in which she came to understand the joy of selflessness - Farrah's gift to her - enlightenment that has changed her life. Writing candidly about aging, marriage, motherhood, and faith - everything she and Farrah have dealt with together - this emotional book is both an affirmation of life, a paean to a beloved friend, and a tribute to the transcendent power of friendship.
Alana Stewart and Farrah Fawcett went through it all together. Friends for thirty years, they were an essential part of each other's lives since first meeting at a dinner party in the 1970s. During that time, they supported each other through the trials of Hollywood life while also raising their families, keeping in close contact.
But in the fall of 2006, a test of their friendship arose unlike any other they'd faced: Farrah was diagnosed with aggressive rectal cancer. She was determined to fight, and Alana was determined to help her. Together, they were relentless in their pursuit of a cure, traveling halfway around the world as they sought every mainstream, alternative, and experimental therapy available. In all, they spent the better part of the next three years together--Alana by her friend's side as they struggled hand in hand with the unknown.
