Farrah Fawcett Dies From Cancer at 62

Tragic news to report! Farrah Fawcett has passed away from anal cancer at 62 years old.

Fawcett passed away at 9:28AM this morning at John’s Heath Center in Santa Monica, Calif. Fawcett has been fighting anal cancer since her diagnosis three years ago.

Her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal was by her side throughout her final days.

As Hollyscoop had previously reported Farrah was rushed to the hospital earlier this week and had been in critical condition.

According to several media outlets, Ryan was trying to get their son Redmond O'Neal, who is currently serving jail time, a temporary leave of absence so he can say his final goodbye to his mother.

Ryan was also hoping that she would recover enough for them to finally tie the knot before she passed. "I've asked her to marry me again, and she's agreed," he told Barbara Walters for a 20/20 interview scheduled to air tonight.

"I’m holding on to the hope that there is some reason I got cancer and that there is something, that may not be very clear to me right now, that I will do," Fawcett said during an interview for the NBC documentary Farrah's Story.

She added: "Everybody says they're praying for me, so I have to get well... when that many people pray!"

Rest in peace Farrah, you'll be missed!
