(Newser) – There’s one bright spot in Farrah Fawcett’s struggle with cancer: She and Ryan O’Neal are finally tying the knot. The 68-year-old O’Neal, who has dated Fawcett, 62, since 1980 and “used to ask her to marry me all the time,” popped the question again recently and she said yes, he tells ABC. The two will wed “as soon as she can say yes,” O’Neal said.
