TODAY, Alana Stewart, cancer survivor and president of The Farrah Fawcett Foundation on Treatment S.O.S. 2:00 p.m. EST W4WN.com and W4CS.com

Thursday, June 14th: They were the real golden girls, beautiful actresses with famous husbands, troubled children, real friendships, and enviable lives. But Alana Stewart and Farrah Fawcett were tough Texas girls that both challenged cancer head-on. Their epic friendship spanning three decades may have ended with the loss of America’s angel, but not without a fight that Farrah vowed to continue even hours before her death. Farrah knew what she wanted and what she didn’t want—she exercised her right of personal choice. But it was a brutal, hard-fought war that left her beaten, but never without hope, spirit or humor. Then the unthinkable: Alana herself had a “one day” battle with cervical cancer—every caregiver’s worst nightmare. This was one of many highs and lows that Alana filmed and produced into Farrah’s Story, a drama that debuted on NBC and was nominated for an Emmy Award. Alana also wrote My Journey with Farrah (a New York Times bestseller) based on the day-to-day struggles to save Farrah between Germany and UCLA. Alana is president of The Farrah Fawcett Foundation that helps to fund cancer research and support those fighting cancer.
