Farrah Fawcett Majors goes alternative
Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 25, 2008
In October 2006 Farrah Fawcett Majors announced that she had anal cancer. She followed doctors orders and was treated with surgery and chemo. In May 2007 the cancer returned. This time she refused to do what her doctors recommended. Instead she flew to Germany for treatments not available in the USA. She is making a documentary of her treatment journey. It should be noted that 95% or more of first time cancer patients do what their doctors tell them. Second time round, when the cancer returns, many of them are by now much more open to the alternatives. They know the pain that the orthodox treatments cause – and if the orthodox treatments didn’t work first time, why should they work a second time?
