Ryan O'Neal's Real-Life Love Story
The prognosis seemed bleak, but Farrah continued to fight. She even documented her battle with cancer using a handheld video camera for the two-hour documentary Farrah's Story.
"Once, she said to me, 'Am I going to make it?' Ryan says. "And I said, 'You are.'"
Aside from that moment, he says they never talked about "the end" or what that might bring. "She was just resigned to any outcome. It was never discussed," he says. "We didn't talk about a will or where she should be buried."
On June 25, 2009, Farrah lost her courageous battle and passed away. Ryan was with her until the very end.
