Alana Stewart and Farrah Fawcett had been through it all together. Friends for thirty years, they had been indispensible in each other's lives since they first met as young models during the 1970s. In that time, they'd supported each other through the trials of Hollywood life, raised their families together, and remained in close contact no matter what else was going on around them.
But in the fall of 2006, a test of their friendship arose unlike any other they'd faced: Farrah was diagnosed aggressive rectal cancer. Intially given only six months to live, Farrah was determined to live and Alana was determined to help her. Together they were relentless in their pursuit of a cure, traveling around the country and the world as they sought every alternative and experimental therapy available. In all they spent the better part of the next two years together--Alana by her friend's side as they struggle with the unknown.
Now in these intimate and personal diaries from her time with Farrah, Alana shares shares her thoughts on the events of the last three years, documenting the journey of her time with Farrah as they hoped and prayed for a miracle, while remembering the thirty years of friendship that they've shared.

Here Alana also details her spiritual journey which came about because of Farrah's ordeal, as Alana came to understand the power of selflessness in a way that changed her whole perspective on life.
