Adding fuel to rumors that Farrah Fawcett is losing her battle against cancer are her friends who say, they are "all praying for a miracle".

Though it has been confirmed by her camp that nothing needs to be worried about her condition, Farrah Fawcett reportedly is losing her cancer battle as her friends have confirmed the actress' health is getting worse. Two longtime associates of her are quoted by Chicago-Sun Times as claiming Farrah is on the verge of dying due to her anal cancer which has spread to her liver.

One of the associates even takes Redmond James O'Neal's weekend visit to his celebrity mother as an initial sign that Farrah is losing her cancer battle. Redmond, Farrah's son with her partner Ryan O'Neal, currently is imprisoned for a violation of his parole stemming from drug charges. He was granted temporary release from jail over the weekend to visit his mother.

"Look. This is all being done so that Farrah can see Redmond while she still is able to talk to him and communicate with him properly. Of course, we're all praying for a miracle, but the likelihood of that happening is very slim," the associate explains. A source close to both Farrah and Ryan chimes in, "a key part of Redmond's visit was so he could swear to his mother that he would stick with a rehab and recovery program."

As of press time, there hasn't been official statement issued by Farrah's camp about the report.

Hello Farrah - My heart reaches out for you, and Ryan. As my and I have been fighting overran cancer stage 4 for the past 3 years. She has just taken a turn to the worse, as she and I know the cancer is coming back. I told her today, if she is not felling any better today I was taking her to the hospital. She is so stubborn. We've been together for 26 years and married 21 years. Everyday she wants me to see how your doing, and I always say that you are fighting the biggest fight she can. I tell her all the time how strong you and all other cancer victims are. I see it everyday of my life with my better half. She is scared as I am, but you do show how instrumental you really are. All my prayer are with you and Ryan. George

FARRAH FAWCETT : DE LA BEAUTE A LA POURRITURE ? Pathétique, poignant, cruel comme un miroir renvoyant l'image de notre propre condition : Farrah Fawcett, ex-beauté incarnée, est en train de s'éteindre quasi en direct sous les caméras de télévision américaines. Cependant elle croit encore à un miracle, priant avec ferveur pour que la vie triomphe de son cancer alors qu'elle est en phase terminale. Sur son visage, le masque de la maladie, de la vieillesse, de la hideur : notre masque potentiel. Le plus effrayant : savoir qu'un humain peut passer de la gloire la plus complète à la misère la plus totale. Tout n'étant qu'une question de temps. Ce qui arrive aux êtres "immortels" peut nous arriver à nous aussi, simples mortels que nous sommes... A travers son agonie nous assistons à notre propre fin. Madame Fawcett ou l'histoire de la beauté qui devient décrépitude. Quand un destin de gloire finit dans la déchéance. Lorsque les sommets insolents de la jeunesse éclatante se concluent par le plus noir abîme... La maladie. Avant la mort. Mais éloignons-nous de ces vanités hollywodiennes, ne nous arrêtons pas à la souffrance, à la tristesse, allons à l'essentiel : au lieu de la pourriture promise par la Camarde, derrière ces apparences immondes du cancer, moi je vois l'éternité. La mort prochaine de Farrah Fawcett : fin d'une étoile ? Oui. Ou pour être plus exact, la lumière retournant à la lumière. Raphaël Zacharie de IZARRA

I wept when I watched the documentary of your suffering. I admire your strength , and positive attitude, something which is very hard to do when you feel horrible. I am sorry you are suffering as you are and I am praying for you, too. Our God is an awesome God who died for all of us, and if your time here is short, I pray you will ask Him into your heart and one day, I will see you in heaven. I am a breast cancer survivor and I know the difficult road you have travelled. God bless you, sweet lady.

By making this documentary, she gives comfort to those among us who must go through treatment AND she stole the thunder of the tabloids! They're always trying to catch a cancer-stricken celebrity looking bad, and Farrah bravely let herself look as bad as she looked, thereby making invasive papparazzi pictures moot. Good for you Farrah, you've had the last word to those parasites, and given comfort to millions. God Bless you and thank you for allowing yourself to be vulnerable and real. You will see your loved ones again in Heaven. Farewell, Angel.

If Farrah does read this then I would like to say to you that doctors can only do so much, they are only human. But I am a born again christian and believe me anything is possible with God. I have called upon him several times and gotten through things I never thought I would. Divorce, Death of my father and my own illness that was suppose to have left me paralyzed. I sat on my couch with the bible in my hand and cried and talked to god and I heard him tell me that if I believed in him he would never leave me nor forsake me. He was with me and I was healed in days. The doctors were very surprised. My doctors gave a high percentage my daughter would be born retarded or blind but my church gathered around together one evening and prayed for us and she was perfectly healthy. the doctors called her a miracle. I can not express enough the power of prayer and believing in God. But Farrah should the lord be ready to take you then be ready for him. The bible says to enter the kingdom of heaven you must be forgiven of your sins and accept Jesus Christ into your heart. Please if you have not done this it is not to late. Accept him as your savior and he will be waiting for you at the gates of heaven to welcome you into his kingsom for eternity. If possible please have someone read footprints in the sand for you and your family. It is one of the most beautiful verses ever. You will be in our prayers and hope to see you in our fathers kingdom some day. Love in Christ Jesus!

I am heartbroken over what you are going through. I think Ryan is disgusting, trying to relive his "Love Story" fame at the expense of your tragedy. You were smart enough to never marry him, and I know you won't now. He is a parasite, and the push to marry is merely a means to get your estate. I pray every day for a miracle, you are a truly lovely person, and for that, you are blessed.

I am a public health nurse and very proud of Farrah for speaking out and educating the public about Anal cancer. To place onself in the spotlight with such vulnerability must surely be difficult and I applaud you for your courage and fight. An American Beauty Icon who is willing to allow everyone to see what you are going through is truly committed to helping others understand. My best wishes are with you and your family as you continue to fight your "war" as you explained in your documentary. You are truly beautiful inside and out!

Dear Farah, As a breast cancer survivor myself, and author to The Empty Cup Runneth Over, I feel you are truly are a strong person and I admire your courage and strength in speaking out about your cancer. God has plans for us all and when we are born we all have a stamp on our butt when it is our time. While I don't want to know mine, it's a fact that one day I must be with the lord when it is my turn. I remember watching you on the original Charlies Angels. Those were the days. Thank you for sharing your experience with cancer.

Farrah you know as well a I that Jesus holds the keys to life and death. In 1985 I suffered daily with what I thought to be a prostate problem only to be healed at a meeting where people prayed for me and said my back was causing the problem. The suffering we endure in this life sometimes presses our Faith. I don't know how bad your condition has gotten, but honestly someone should take you to Kenneth Copeland's ministry and have them pray by laying on of hands. God touched me when I sincerely had no reason to live and if you get yourself in the presense of where the Holy Spirit is moving you can be delivered. Do it today, I don't believe he wants this Charlie's Angel now. Love in Christ Jesus.

You are loved BY THE WHOLE WORLD! And your courage is heroic.

I watched Farrah's documentary on t.v today and i cried. Farrah had such a strong will and desire to live and beat the cancer! With all the pain that Farrah had to endure during the treatments and surgeries, she always managed to share her beautiful smile with us all.I hope that Redmond finds his way out of the drugs and fights for his life as his mother did for hers until the end!!To all of Farrah's family and friends, may you all find peace in knowing that Farrah is no longer in pain and that she is in heaven smiling down on you.

Farrah....I am so sad thinking of what you must be going through at this very moment. I watched your documentary with great sadness and many, many tears. I pray for a sudden miracle for you soon. It's not too late. Please reach out to anyone who wants to help you at this time. What a great loss if we should lose you. You are so loved.

farrah, I watched your story. My mom and dad both died of this invasive disease. I was so saddened watching your story. Especially when I saw redmond. I remember now the pain of knowing I would never see my mother again. Dont stop praying dont stop, fight and dont stop fighting. You are such an inspiration to everyone. I dont know if I could be so strong. Its hard knowing that my mom went through all of that treatment all alone. She would be dropped off and left I cant imagine. I have basal cell carcinoma and every time I go get a mole off I dread those words its bad. I will pray for you and your family and redmond. I have been where he is also and I just wish it could be all better. You said in your show" god doesnt give you this disease the devil does" your right and he always looses one way or the other.

Farah you have a lot of people thinking of you at this very moment. People should leave her son alone it is possible that his drug use has gotten worse because of this sad situation. Be strong Redmond and try to give up these bad habits. What you havewitnessed with your mom being sick will take to to bad places but always remember your mom would not want you to be sad but live life drugfree and happy. When you witness such a tragedy this disease we call cancer it stays with you your whole life. Make your mother proud and give it up. Farah stay strong eat food and know that you are in alot of peoples prayers. God bless you and your family.

COLON canceer you mean? Be accurate when reporting. A few actors have died of colon cancer, like Elizabeth Montgomery, Audrey Hepburn, Eartha Kitt,(i wonder if constant dieting has something to do with it?) Cancer does not discriminate. Actually African Americans have the highest mortality of colon cancer. Maybe because it goes untreated or maybe its genetic. Go and get tested.

I hope to god this is just more of what we've had - creating 'stories' out of nothing because there is nothing to base them on. I highly doubt any 'source' close to Farrah is going to contribute to this rumor mill. How must it feel to be ill and read every day that you're losing the battle? The best to Farrah - fight the fight.
