Description

Alana Stewart and Farrah Fawcett were inseparable since they first met in the 1970s. Over the course of 30 years, they supported each other through the trials of Hollywood life, raised their families together, and remained as close as two friends could be. But in fall 2006, their relationship was tested as never before when Farrah was diagnosed with aggressive rectal cancer. Given six months to live, the beautiful actress vowed to beat the disease; Alana vowed to help her. Relentless in their pursuit of a cure, they travelled around the country and the world, seeking out alternative and experimental therapies. During that quest, Alana kept a diary of their experience fighting the disease and recorded cherished memories of their years together. Now, to honor her friend's grace and courage in the face of death, and to celebrate their enduring bond, Alana shares these intimate and personal diaries with us all. As she chronicles Farrah's story, Alana reveals her own spiritual journey in which she came to understand the joy of selflessness - Farrah's gift to her - enlightenment that has changed her life.
Writing candidly about aging, marriage, motherhood, and faith - everything she and Farrah have dealt with together - this emotional book is both an affirmation of life, a paean to a beloved friend, and a tribute to the transcendent power of friendship.

Back cover copy

For thirty years, Farrah Fawcett and Alana Stewart were friends, and in that time they'd been through it all. But in the fall of 2006, a test of their friendship arose unlike any other they'd faced: Farrah's cancer diagnosis.

Together, Farrah and Alana were relentless in their pursuit of a cure, and in these intimate and personal diaries, Alana shares her thoughts on the journey she and Farrah embarked upon as they battled this illness to the end. From the importance of selflessness to the undeniable value of faith, Alana's diary entries demonstrate how, even in the face of this debilitating disease, Farrah continued to teach everyone around her about the courage and power of friendship.

With candid stories about aging, marriage, motherhood, and faith--all topics Alana and Farrah laughed and cried about over the years--My Journey with Farrah provides a moving tribute to Hollywood's golden girl and an inspiring celebration of Farrah's life.
