BEEP! BEEP! Anorak’s CCN (Celebrity Cancer News) alerts us to Farah Fawcett’s anal cancer. Like JADE Goody

Daily Mirror: “Like Jade Goody, Farrah decided to share her private battle by making a documentary, A Wing and a Prayer. It is likely to be her last appearance on camera.”

Examiner: “Unlike the late Jade Goody, a woman who chose to live the end of her life on a public stage, Fawcett has dealt with her illness pretty much out of the limelight.”

Melbourne Sun: “Learning a Goody lesson”

Coming hot on the heels of Jade Goody’s almost stately public funeral in London at the weekend, we’re witnessing an ever more complicated phenomenon: stars trying to balance their constant desire for attention with the need to turn off the cameras when it all gets too much.

We have officially entered an era of death porn. Between the paparazzi zoom and the internet, Fawcett and Goody have received more publicity than they would have killed for in the fledgling days of their careers.

Tabloid Bingo!

And DVD rentals of ski-fall victim Natasha Richardson’s films have also enjoyed a boost in popularity. As Jimi Hendrix once told us: when you’re dead, you’re made for life…

We’ve seen stars such as Michael J. Fox and Patrick Swayze recently opening the gates and revealing the vulnerable characters behind the publicity machine, and they’ve only gone up in their fans’ estimation.

Times of The Internet:

Fawcett is expected to be released from the undisclosed hospital in a few days, according to Nevius.

Other celebrities fighting cancer include Patrick Swayze, 56, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in January, 2008. Despite his illness, he has continued with his acting career and stars on the A&E series, The Beast.

British reality television star, Jade Goody, passed away on…
