# Farrah Fawcett Foundation
We Honor Farrah's Own Fight with Cancer by Passionately Giving to:
After being diagnosed with cancer in 2006, Farrah Fawcett started the Farrah Fawcett Foundation in 2007. She was committed to finding a cure for her cancer and to personally oversee her foundation.
Unfortunately, events took a different turn and after seeking various treatments including alternative choices, she passed away on June 25, 2009.
Farrah wanted to help further cutting edge research and was particularly interested in alternative practices. She often wondered why there was not more research done with this type of cancer and hoped to be able to contribute to this less known area of the disease.
Farrah cared deeply about those less fortunate than she; those struggling with financial hardships as a result of their diagnosis
