    I thought fox news saying she died of anal cancer was rather rude/insensitive to the whole issue.

    The woman died and you gonna say anal cancer? Just say colon cancer like every other fucking person.

    Do the people that bought the tickets to the London show get their money back? If not that's the best scam ever... well except for the whole death part of it.

    what bugs me most about the new article is that they listed the type of cancer, how flipping tacky! come on, just say cancer! no need to go any further *sigh* reporters now days in general suck arse!

    There IS a significant difference. I believe Farrah spent much of her remaining days getting the message out about this particularly nasty form of cancer, so it's not like it was some kind of secret. It is this childish attitude that it should be taboo to discuss diseases of the anus, rectum, and gastrointestinal tract that cause many people to be too embarrassed to get checked out for them.

    no no, im not saying it was childish, I think it just lacked tact. I mean yes I know there IS a difference between colon cancer and anal cancer, I'm just saying, it looked bad is all.

    I had no idea there was a difference between the two until my mom informed me. Either way I didn't find it very funny since I watched my father pass from cancer and am currently watching my mother go through another type of cancer. I can only imagine how bad it must have been for her. My aunt said that her story was documented? like treatments and what it was like to live with? Anyone have any idea about this?

    I just know that it was a TV special not too long ago. I don't have TV, so no idea when exactly or what channel. I'm sure its somewhere on the 'net though.
