‘Clear-headed’ Farrah Fawcett praised by doctorMay 20th, 2009 - 4:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 20 (ANI): Cancer-stricken Farrah Fawcett’s doctor has showered the actress with praises, saying her “clear thinking” has lent her a helping hand in battling the disease.
The former Charlie’s Angels star was diagnosed with anal cancer back in 2006, and it has since spread to her liver.
The 62-year-old, in 2007, refused to undergo a colostomy, a surgical procedure that involves connecting a part of the colon onto the anterior abdominal wall, opting for an alternative therapy in Germany instead.
And now, her doctor, Lawrence Vogl, feels the star was right in turning down the surgery.
“I’m not truly convinced (it would have helped). Farrah always had - and has - a very special insight and very clear thinking. And I think if you see it now, I think she, in a way, was right,” the Daily Star quoted Vogl as saying in an interview with Larry King.
Vogl further said he admired the brave actress for her determination, adding: “If you treat the person for a longer time, you will always have a very special relationship.
“But from a lot of treatments and contact and communication, I think she is extremely special, an extremely brave person. She was very charming and very, very controlled.” (ANI)
