A little premature....but CNN reports that Farrah Fawcetts battle with cancer is nearing the end.

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Farrah Fawcett has been hospitalized in the latest stage of her battle against cancer, a producer working with the actress said Monday
"She is not unconscious, she is not unresponsive, and she is not comatose," Craig Nevius told CNN.
He added that Fawcett "is surrounded by family and friends." She "has a real iron will" and is "a fighter," he said.

I...along with a million other male teenagers lusted over this woman in the 70's. Thanks Farrah.
