Farrah Fawcett is Bald, Bedridden, Near Death

Farrah Fawcett is in her final days.

The cancer-stricken actress, the disease now spread throughout her body, is bedridden and bald - her famous blond tresses now gone as she fights for life.

"She stays in bed now," her lover of 30 years Ryan O'Neal told "The doctors see that she's comfortable .... The treatment has pretty much ended."

Fawcett, 62, has battled anal cancer since 2006. O'Neal said the disease has spread to her liver and other body parts; she's fed through an IV and spends much of her time asleep.

A teary-eyed O'Neal said Fawcett, whose weight was reportedly down to 86 pounds, never once complained about her fate.

"Farrah has never, ever talked about how unfair it is," O'Neal said. "There was always a courage there, and a quiet dignity. Farrah never changed."

O'Neal confirmed Fawcett had made a half-dozen trips to Germany seeking medical treatment unavailable in the U.S. and will detail that, along with the rest of her cancer story in a documentary airing on NBC next week.

Their son Redmond visited Fawcett last month after he was given a three-hour pass from jail.

Fawcett is unaware of his recent arrest for heroin possession, O'Neal said.

She's also without her signature blond hair.

"The hair is gone," O'Neal said. "Her famous hair. I have it at home. ... How she carried all that hair, I'll never know."
