(Newser) – Farrah Fawcett’s treatment for anal cancer “has pretty much ended,” partner Ryan O’Neal tells People. The 62-year-old actress spends nearly all of her time in bed now, with doctors trying to make her as comfortable as possible. “I just don't know how to play this one," said O'Neal. "I won't know this world without her.”

O'Neal also says Fawcett's iconic hair is gone. "Her famous hair. I have it at home. She didn't care. I rub her head. It's kind of fun, actually, this great, tiny little head. How she carried all that hair I'll never know. She doesn't have a vanity about it." Fawcett made a documentary about her illness, which will air in primetime May 15 on NBC.
