- Farrahs prognose er utmerket. Hun har fått den beste behandling, og kroppen hennes har respondert på beste måte, sier Dr. Gary Gitnick fra sykehuset på University of California. Dette ifølge People Magazine.
Den tidligere stjernen i TV-serien "Charlies engler" avslørte at hun hadde kreft så sent som i oktober. Den en gang så vakre blondinen så svært syk ut, og mange fryktet for hennes liv. Blant dem "engel"-kollega Kate Jackson...
- Jeg har aldri sett noen gå gjennom så mye med slik verdighet. Jeg beundrer Farrahs styrke og mot, sier Kate til People.
Også andre kollegaer og venner - samt eks-kjæresten Ryan O'Neal sto ved Farrahs side mens hun kjempet mot kreften. Nå får hun altså live i gave på 60-årsdagen, og det mangler neppe på gratulanter!
Her er Farrahs egen pressemelding, på engelsk:
"This is an extraordinarily happy day for me and my family. I have been on a journey for the past four months and during this time received a tremendously aggressive treatment which doctors initially warned me would be the most difficult fight of my life. I was told they needed me to 'bite the bullet' and that would require great courage and unfailing determination. In the face of excruciating pain and uncertainly, I never lost hope and it never occurred to me to stop fighting – not ever.
"This experience has also humbled me by giving me a true understanding of what millions of others face each day in their own fight against cancer. I hope that my news might offer some level of inspiration to others who unfortunately must continued to fight the disease. So to those who are still struggling toward their own victory, stay determined, 'fight the fight' and I will keep you and your families in my thoughts and prayers.
"I am deeply grateful to my team of physicians, my loving and supportive family and devoted friends who have sustained me as I battled this terrible disease, strengthened by my faith in God and the encouragement of so many."
