Farrah Fawcett has cancer

TV legend Farrah Fawcett is battling cancer, according to press reports.

Doctors discovered a malignant tumor in her lower intestine and she has been undergoing intensive radiation to shrink it.

According to The National Enquirer, after Fawcett has surgery to remove the deadly cancer, the 59-year-old former "Charlie's Angels" star will have to endure chemotherapy.

The devastating news came after the star's appearance on August 27 at the Emmy Awards, where she was reunited with former co-stars Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson during a tribute to TV producing legend Aaron Spelling.

A family friend tells the magazine that her illness has brought her back together with longtime love Ryan O'Neal, who survived his own battle with Leukemia.

The source says, "After Farrah got the diagnosis she was devastated. Everyone in the family cried for days.

"Then she snapped out of it and told Ryan, 'I'm going to beat this!'"
