Docket Page 42 – My Journey with Farrah: A Story of Life, Love, and Friendship by Alana Stewart

CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): To chronicle how friendship handles a terminal illness and to bring awareness to alternative treatments.

FACTS: This book is being re-released ten years after the death of Farrah Fawcett. Farrah and the author – Alana Stewart (the ex-wife of George Hamilton and Rod Stewart) – were old friends. When Farrah was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, Alana agreed to be with her through her treatment and chronicle the journey. The two traveled to Germany several times to obtain treatments that were not available in the United States. For three years the duo explored pain, suffering, spirituality, and the bonds of family, all while trying to find a cure for Farrah’s cancer. Following Farrah’s death, Alana became the president of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation which “supports cutting-edge HPV-related cancer research, along with patient assistance and prevention efforts.”

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Guilty, as charged. A very informative read.

Thanks to my friend Ernie for loaning me the book!
