Farrah Fawcett received incredible news this week. “Extra” has learned the actress had a procedure to make sure she was indeed cancer free, and Farrah's doctors gave her a clean bill of health and proclaimed her prognosis “excellent.”
Fellow “Angel” Jaclyn Smith talked to Farrah just days ago and told us, “She is doing great. She is on the other side of it, and she's just handled it beautifully.”
Fawcett's longtime love Ryan O'Neal has been by Farrah's side every step of her 4-month fight, and “Extra” has learned Fawcett's dad also few in from Texas to be with his daughter when she got the happy news.
Farrah said she has never felt better. We have learned she is anxious to get back to work, and she is fielding offers in TV and theater. Farrah also released this statement:
“This is an extraordinarily happy day for me and my family… I never lost hope, and it never occurred to me to stop fighting – not ever.”
The “Angel” said she is considering several book deals for her autobiography, and she told us she will establish a foundation in her name to raise awareness.
She also told us she plans to celebrate her upcoming 60th birthday with family, friends and the peace of mind that she is cancer free.
