NBC has picked up “A Wing and a Prayer,” Farrah Fawcett’s documentary about her battle with rectal cancer.
The film follows Fawcett as she receives experimental cancer treatments in Germany, shuttling between doctors’ appointments and run-ins with the paparazzi, promising to be an intense and intimate look into the star’s struggles during her illness.
“A Wing and a Prayer” is shot like a video diary by Fawcett herself, although some of her close friends and long-time boyfriend Ryan O’Neal pick up the camera as well. [source]
We can all agree cancer is bad, right? And everybody knows someone who’s died from it, right? Cool, let’s go ahead and move forward to telling jokes about it, then. For example, I like to pretend that she’s being told she has rectal cancer in all these pictures. Because cancer is especially tragic when it happens to beautiful people.
