Actress Farrah Fawcett, Charlie's Angel icon, has been battling cancer for the past two and a half years, and her longtime partner, Ryan O'Neal, speaks out about his heartbreak.

He tells People magazine in an exclusive interview, "It's a love story. I just don't know how to play this one. I won't know this world without her. Cancer is an insidious enemy."

He goes on to say, "She stays in bed now. The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment. The treatment has pretty much ended."

During her struggle with the illness, she even made a two-hour documentary, Farrah's Story, with pal Alana Stewart called. It airs on NBC on May 15th. "She wanted to tell the truth." Alana says, "There were times I'd stop filming because I thought it was too personal and she said, 'This is what people go through with cancer. Film it.' So I would."

I think it's extremely brave of her to document her struggle in hopes that it helps others.
