Hollywood heartbreak on June 25, 2009 - the day icons Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died
On June 25, 2009, the entertainment world and fans endured a double heartbreaker
on that day both actress Farrah Fawcett and pop superstar Michael Jackson died - roughly 12 hours apart.
Fawcett, who inspired millions of women to copy her feather-cut hairdo,
fought with every fiber of her being when she was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006.
The actress and model was declared cancer-free in 2007 but then found out it had spread to her liver.
There is a reason for all this. It is a challenge to my very core,
to my strength, my mind, my spirit and my soul,”
she says in a documentary made at her request by her best friend,
Alana Stewart, that followed her journey to treat the cancer.
