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.
