Farrah Fawcett Foundation Starts New Chapter of HPV Awareness


 
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, created by Ms. Fawcett in 2006 to provide funding for cutting-edge cancer research, support cancer prevention and awareness and to help those struggling with the disease, is embarking on a new, school-focused outreach effort.
 
Alana Stewart, CEO of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, along with Dr. Ellis Reinherz from Dana Farber Cancer Institute, recently spoke at the Dana Hall School, an all-girl high school in Wellesley, MA, about human papillomavirus, or HPV, which causes nearly 26,000 cancers diagnoses annually.  The Foundation's seminar is the first of an outreach effort that includes speaking engagements at schools and will be expanded to a multimedia presentation as part of the Foundation's awareness/prevention mission.
 
The Foundation is creating a video presentation aimed at educating age-appropriate children, their parents and school nurses about the virus and its link to cancer, the risks of transmission and the availability and safety of vaccines.
 
"HPV cancers are preventable, unlike most other cancers," said Stewart, "but it is extremely easy to contract HPV. It is the most common sexually transmitted virus."
Other ongoing educational outreach contains key information about HPV, including:
  • The FDA-approved HPV vaccine is safe.
  • The vaccine rate in the United States, compared to other advanced countries, is among the lowest.
  • Boys have an increasing risk for contracting an HPV-related cancer.
  • Single women over 40 may have the disease and not realize it. Testing is vital.
The Foundation joined with Stand Up to Cancer and has committed $1 million to fund The Farrah Fawcett/SU2C Translational Research Team dedicated to finding a cure for all HPV related cancers. The team is headed by renowned researchers Dr. Ellis Reinherz and Dr. Robert Haddad, at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
 
The Foundation, also co-funded the International Anal Neoplasia Society at the University of San Francisco, which recently held a conference of 120 scientists involved in HPV research. 
 
The Foundation is certified by the California Franchise Tax Board and Secretary of State to be in good standing with those agencies, and recently emerged from a correspondence audit by the California Attorney General that found no major violations. "We are so pleased that this matter is now officially closed and are very happy with the outcome," said Stewart.

Noel Cruz's Katniss (featured on several news sites) and top selling Kate Jackson

Noel Cruz's repainted and restyled Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Barbie repaint that sold recently on eBay for $2,500.00 has garnered a lot of press, and, deservedly so. The repaint captures the true likeness and essence of Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen the heroine of The Hunger Games franchise. The winning bid, though significant is not the top selling auction for Cruz whose repainted and restyled Kate Jackson as Sabrina Duncan sold in 2012 for $5,100.00 also on eBay.

Here is the article as featured on Entertainment Tonight as well as other news related links. Cruz is also to be featured in a British Press story (filmed at his studio in Tustin California this December) about his repainted dolls... story will be featured on; http://www.catersnews.com

How a Barbie That Looks Like Jennifer Lawrence Ended Up Selling for Thousands of Dollars

by John Boone      1:16 PM PST, December 04, 2014



Jennifer Lawrence is a woman of many hats; Oscar-winning actress. Dior model. Billboard charts-ranking songstress. Inspiration for a one-of-a-kind Barbie that recently sold on eBay for thousands of dollars.  The apical skills section of her resume is extensive. But back to the that doll; It was done by Noel Cruz, an artist who "repaints" Barbies to make them look more like their real-life counterpart. Here is a sample of his work, including vintage Madonna, Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, and Glenn Close in 101 Dalmatians.




Again: that is not just a photograph of Angelina Jolie's as Maleficent. Here's how he did it: Cruz started with Barbie's Hunger Games Collector's Edition doll (which retails for around $45). He re-dyed and styled her hair, then erased the face of the original Katniss doll.



With fine tools and what must be endless patience, he masterfully repaints the face, changing the doll's skin tones and features to make them more Jennifer Lawrence-y.




And here's the final transformation that sold for $2,500.00 in an eBay auction!

Is owning a "Whoa, that's so realistic" J.Law doll worth 2.5 grand? You tell us.

(A 2014 December repainted Farrah Fawcett)

Noel's work is DEFINITELY worth the price. eBay bidders dictate the winning price... but this is art and an artist at the top of his game. If you google OOAK repainted dolls, you will find most are not very technically adept. You can zoom in right up to the tiniest eyebrow hair (and believe me, they look like real hairs growing out of the dolls head). He is truly a "Picasso" right now with his craft, he not only paints or rather repaints and restyled dolls but he is an excellent artist at sketching and painting on canvas. He has gotten a lot of press for this latest repaint but if you visit his web site you'll see he excels at all his repaints and drawings.
 
The 2012 Angels Auction comes to a final close with the record setting Kate Jackson with a winning bid of $5,100.00
Noel Cruz's Angel Auction included: Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and the record selling Kate Jackson (who went for $5,100.00 on eBay).

Fawcett Warhol Napkin heading to Auction

WASHINGTON — The small drawing — a collection of scribblings, really — isn’t much to look at: a series of split hearts with a few words and numbers on it. Except for one arresting feature: the signature by the artist, Andy Warhol.

The unusual artifact, drawn by pen on a cloth dinner napkin, is up for auction next Friday in Beverly Hills, Calif., after a high-powered legal battle between the University of Texas at Austin and actor Ryan O’Neal over art owned by the late actress Farrah Fawcett.

A jury decided in December that O’Neal was the rightful owner of a Warhol portrait of Fawcett, his longtime lover, but that the “Warhol napkin” was jointly owned by the university, to which the actress had bequeathed all her artwork, and him.

The university at first appealed the Los Angeles County Superior Court jury’s verdict, then settled with O’Neal in May, with the actor keeping the portrait of Fawcett, valued at least at $12 million, and both sides agreeing to sell the napkin at auction and divide the proceeds. Fawcett, who was from Corpus Christi, Texas, studied art at the University of Texas at Austin before moving to California to begin her career.

While the framed 24-by-24-inch drawing is rather plain, it has quite a colorful back story, one that Darren Julien, the president and chief executive officer of Julien’s Auctions, thinks will push its price as part of an “Icons and Idols” auction way beyond the $6,000 to $8,000 estimate.

“We anticipate it will sell for a lot more,” Julien said in an interview. “A lot of times we are very conservative for the auction. I still think this could sell for $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 or even $60,000.”

How is that possible? Part of the interest in the piece comes from its being an authentic item by Warhol, the enfant terrible of the contemporary art scene who died in 1987 but whose works have taken on a life of their own.

Warhol’s art has recently spiked at auction; his “Triple Elvis” sold for nearly $82 million Nov. 12 at a Christie’s auction in New York. The painting, with three frames of a gun-slinging Elvis Presley, was the auction’s top seller, and it helped set a sales record for a Christie’s contemporary art auction. It had been estimated to sell for about $60 million.

The napkin isn’t in that league, of course, but it features Fawcett and O’Neal, iconic figures who became famous in the 1970s, she for TV’s “Charlie’s Angels” and he for the movie “Love Story.”

Both their names are on the napkin, and O’Neal himself set the scene in 1980 that led to the drawing of the napkin.

“Farrah and I were new lovers. We were at a dinner celebrating Andy’s new book at the home of Lynn and Oscar Wyatt in Houston, Texas,” O’Neal said, according to the auction house catalog. “I had known the Wyatts and Andy Warhol for over a decade, and during the course of the dinner, Andy observed Farrah and I. He (Warhol) saw the love between us and it inspired him to draw . right there on our napkin. Two hearts joining as one.”

Wyatt is a legendary Texas oilman and his wife a famous socialite, and the drawing includes a curved line, presumably Texas, and the words “Houston Texas” as well as a New York phone number, considered to be Warhol’s.

Fawcett had the napkin framed and kept it at her home. The couple, who never married but had a son together, split in 1997, although they were together on and off, according to O’Neal, for the rest of her life. Fawcett died of cancer in 2009 at 62 years of age.

When the University of Texas sued O’Neal over a “missing” Warhol portrait of Fawcett — there were two nearly identical paintings, of which the university had one and O’Neal the other — the actor countersued over the napkin, which the university’s Blanton Museum of Art had possession of. The napkin is now at the Julien’s Auction gallery, where it will be on display starting Monday, leading up to the auction.

Julien thinks the work will be a draw. “It’s part of pop culture history,” he said.

It hasn’t gotten much attention so far for this auction, though, which has highlighted dresses and outfits worn by Princess Diana, the late mother of Britain’s Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
A work of art by Fawcett also up for auction, by an anonymous owner: a nude bronze sculpture of a female torso. It’s signed by Fawcett, but its pre-auction estimate is only $3,500 to $5,500.

Fawcett's Funny About Love






Farrah Fawcett images from CUT SCENE. 

Visit http://www.myfarrah.com.

CNN ARTICLE: Farrah in the morning

She would come walking across the lawn just after sunrise.


The days and nights had been long; everyone else, as darkness turned into dawn, looked wrung out and worn down and weary.


She just glowed.


"Morning!" she would say, flashing that zillion-watt smile, greeting each of us by name.


"Morning, Farrah," we would say back, feeling gray and dull in her presence.


This was at the La Quinta resort near Palm Springs, California, almost 20 years ago. The only piece of writing of mine that was ever turned into a feature film was being shot there. Farrah was one of the female leads.


At least she, and we, thought she was. More on that later.


She seemed to be an awfully nice person. That much I can tell you, from my limited time with her as she made that movie. She did her best to try to make the people around her forget just how all-reaching her fame was. There is a stratum of renown that is separate from the variety that accrues to most performers; Michael Jackson, who died on the same day as she, knew that type of renown, and so did she. Regardless of the role, she was always destined to be, in the eyes of the public, Farrah. That had to have been both a blessing and an encumbrance.


Most people in show business would do just about anything to possess that level of connection with the people out in the seats -- to move through life having everyone in the world feel they know you. It must be difficult, though, to bury yourself in a fictional part when, inside, you are resigned to the idea that, to the unseen ticket buyers in the darkness, you are, now and always, Farrah.


Any person with whom she had contact, however brief, would remember it for years. She understood that. She was golden, literally; it was her calling card. At breakfast, on the mornings she would join the crew, we would sit around long wooden catering tables, and there was a what's-wrong-with-this-picture aspect to the scene. These were mundane meals, and she was anything but. Or that's what we thought. Farrah? She was just getting ready to put in a day's work.


The movie itself -- it was called "Funny About Love"-- turned out to be quite forgettable. The male lead was played by Gene Wilder; the three women in his life were played, as the script was written, by Christine Lahti, Mary Stuart Masterson and Farrah. Everyone on the set seemed to get along, but what do I know? I'd never been on another set. After a lifetime of grunted hellos from assistant city editors, this was quite a change. Those dawns on the desert, those cast-and-crew breakfasts, those "Morning!"s from Farrah as she strolled across the grass.


Steve Allen, a luminary in the early days of television and a cogent observer of the world around him, said that when people see a person who is regularly on TV, it is as if the television performer emits a glow. The glow is invisible, yet it's there. And when a person who once was constantly on television suddenly isn't on television anymore, Allen said, it is as if the glow evaporates. It's gone.


Maybe he was right -- but with Farrah, the glow endured. It never went away. Another accomplished television performer -- Phil Donahue -- argued that there was no essential difference between Frank Sinatra's fame and the fame of a local TV weathercaster. Donahue's point was that you're either famous or you're not; there's no in-between. If you deliver the weather news on your town's most popular station, then everyone within the county line knows you. You're Sinatra.


The theory made a certain sense, but there was that qualitative difference to Farrah's fame. She could not have gotten rid of it if she had wanted to.


Yet no one always wins. The most blessed among us are subject to hurt. Here is what happened with that movie that was filmed on the desert:


Months after the final scenes were shot, I received a phone call from one of the producers. Opening weekend was approaching.


"Farrah's not in the movie," he said.


I didn't process the words.


"She asked for her name to be taken off the credits?" I said.


"No," he said. "She has been cut out of the final film."


The powers that be with the authority to make such decisions, the story went, after some screenings in front of test audiences had decided that the movie didn't work well with Farrah in it. So every single one of her scenes had been excised. The movie had been recut as if she had never existed.


Even when you're golden, it seems, life can blindside you and try to make you feel small. Even when, to those on the outside, it appears that you have everything, it can vanish. Somewhere, in metal film cans on some shelf or other, there are colorful motion images of a beautiful woman doing her job, images the world has never seen. "Morning!" she would call on her way to breakfast. She carried the sunrise with her.

Standing Up To Cancer: Farrah Fawcett's Dream Continues

from 8/31/2014

Standing Up To Cancer: Farrah Fawcett's Dream Continues


Actress Alana Stewart, as President of The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, is part of an ongoing mission—a mission to bring awareness and importance of continuing her late friend’s fight against cancer.

Last month marked the fifth year since Farrah lost her battle with anal cancer at the age of 62.

According to Stewart, Fawcett, who was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006, sought to develop the foundation immediately after her diagnosis. In 2007, the foundation was formally established and then opened officially after Fawcett’s death in 2009.

Fawcett’s ultimate goal, Stewart explained, “was to fund cutting edge research, especially in areas of cancer that weren’t very much researched, such as anal cancer.”


Stewart further explains that Fawcett wanted to help fund prevention programs and bring awareness to people to have regular testing for various types of cancers related to STIs (sexually transmitted infections). Stewart relates that the delay in Fawcett receiving her first colonoscopy may have resulted in her being diagnosed with stage 4 anal cancer.

Although Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer, she apparently was never diagnosed with HPV, according to Stewart.  While the initial plan of Fawcett’s foundation was to focus on anal cancer, the decision was made to expand the foundation’s focus to include HPV-associated cancers since these contribute to the majority of all persons diagnosed with anal cancer, according to Stewart.

The importance of vaccination to help prevent subsequent cancer stemming from the HPV virus has thus been an important and ongoing initiative of Fawcett’s foundation.
“I’m so grateful to Michael Douglas for having spoken out about it [HPV], because that is what it really takes for people to be aware,” explained Stewart.

“If you know that there is a vaccine that you can give a young teenager that will prevent them from getting HPV and possibly cancer–that could save millions of lives,” added Stewart.

The Unspoken Cancers

According to the CDC, high-risk human papilloma viruses (Types 16, 18) are responsible for the majority of anal cancers (the cancer that took Farrah’s life) and cervical cancers, as well as many vaginal, vulvar, penile, and oropharyngeal cancers.
In the US, over half of all new cases of oropharyngeal cancer are associated with HPV-16, with the incidence of HPV associated oral cancer increasing more sharply in men compared to women over the past 20 years. In fact, estimates are that HPV will be the cause of more cases of orophayngeal cancer than cervical cancer by 2020. Consistent and proper use of condoms has been shown to reduce the risk of transmission of HPV between sexual partners.


George Hamilton and Alana Stewart
The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which funds cutting edge research in memory of Farrah’s life, also provides patient assistance funds for those faced with mounting expenses during treatment along with special prevention programs.

This past spring, in fact, The Farrah Fawcett Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer joined together to commit $1 million dollars over three years to fund a collaborative translational research team to study HPV-related cancers.

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a grassroots movement developing unique collaborative teams of researchers from multiple well known medical institutions, and a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), had three successful fundraising telecasts in 2008, 2010 and 2012.

SU2C will return to primetime television live on September 5th from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles at 8 PM EST as the major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS CBS +1.34% and FOX) and major cable stations donate one hour of broadcasting time to raise funds.

When looking back at 1970’s fashion icons, the first name that comes to mind is Farrah Fawcett. With her blond ‘feathered’ hair, gorgeous smile and Californian tan she was the ultimate 70’s sex kitten and became the symbol of a whole generation.

Although Farrah Fawcett first rose to fame when she played private detective Jill Monroe in the first season of the TV series Charlie’s Angels, it was the poster she shot in the same year that sent her to pop culture icon status. Picturing her in a red swimsuit, the photo was an instant success and soon featured on every teenager’s bedroom wall (you can even spot it in John Travolta’s bedroom in Saturday Night Fever).  12 million copies of the poster were sold worldwide.

It wasn’t only men who admired Farrah though. Women envied her athletic figure, sex appeal and most importantly, her hair style! Originally created by stylist Allen Edwards, Farrah’s layered haircut and its legendary ‘flick’ was copied by millions of women and came to be simply known at ‘The Farrah’.

Fresh faced and always smiling, Farrah represented the girl next door and as such her fashion style was relaxed. Her favorite look consisted of high-waisted jeans paired with blouses, tees or simple jumpers. She rarely wore a bra which only added to her sexy care-free image. She also knew how to glam things up in the evenings by picking dresses that would show off her killer figure. The gold chain-mail dress she wore at the 1978’s Academy Awards (designed by Stephen Burrows) remains one of her most iconic looks.

Farrah Fawcett died in 2009 following a three year battle with cancer. She documented her cancer journey as a way ‘to help and inspire people’. ‘Farrah’s story’ was watched by over 9 million people upon its screening. She will always be remembered not only as one of the most beautiful women in the world but one of its bravest too.

Signature items: High-waisted jeans, blouses and simple tees. One piece red swimsuit. Platform and skater shoes. No bras.

Hair and make up: Fresh faced, natural looking make up. Bronzer. Layered curls with an outward flick.

From the naïf, buttoned-down shirts to the high-waisted denim flares, not only did Fawcett set the small screen alight but her look came to define a generation. The ‘Farrah Flick’ became the first must have celebrity hair style and the image of the actress in a swimsuit, head tilted back and grinning broadly, has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. She is consistently name-checked by designers when a 70s revival rolls round.

Lee Grant's New Book

 
New article about Lee Grant's new book... She writes she thinks Fawcett was into cocaine... but not factually based, just "suspected" it's disheartening to think that Fawcett probably initially trusted Grant but clearly in the end did not... as she did not even sign a release Grant needed signed. Excerpt from article; "Grant first met Farrah Fawcett at a party sitting on a baby grand piano. She was wearing blue Mary Jane shoes and little white socks, a dress with puffed sleeves and the skirt just clearing her panties. ‘---so crazy, so seductive, so kinky’.
‘What I felt most during the time spent with Farrah was her desperation. The fear of not making it in time. The determination’. Farrah wasn’t sick then but she was driven. On her second meeting with Farrah, Grant was filming the star for a Lifetime documentary but Farrah didn’t come out of her bathroom for three hours and refused to sign the release. ‘Privately I always thought there might be cocaine involved. Her little nose was pink and running. My own life in the bathrooms of L.A. was extensive. Everyone, including me, did coke in the bathroom, grass in the living room’.

Farrah Fawcett Foundation Announces $50,000 Grant To Brown University Oncology Research Group

Grant Earmarked for Trial Drug Aimed at Treatment of Anal Cancer

LOS ANGELESApril 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Farrah Fawcett Foundation (FFF) has presented a $50,000 grant to the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG) for "BrUOG 276: A Phase II Evaluation of ADXS11-001, Mitomycin, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and IMRT for Anal Cancer," it was announced by Alana Stewart, President of The FFF. The grant will allow for the continued coordination and management of this novel clinical trial, representing an important step and sign of promise in anal cancer treatment.
The grant follows on the heels of an announcement earlier this month in which The FFF in concert with Stand Up to Cancer, have formed a research team dedicated to HPV-related cancers with $1.2 million earmarked to fund this innovative project over the next three years.
The BrUOG 276 study is investigating whether the addition of the immunotherapy drug, ADXS11-001, provided by Advaxis, Inc  (NASDAQ:ADXS),  can be tolerated and if it will increase response rates when added to the standard care treatment of chemotherapy and radiation. While almost all anal cancers are HPV positive, Advaxis's immunotherapy drug "stimulates a person's immune system to assist in the attack of cells made cancerous by HPV," stated Howard Safran, MD, Medical Director of BrUOG and Professor of Medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. After Advaxis showed promise in a Phase II cervical cancer trial, BrUOG is optimistic about the applicability of this treatment regimen in anal cancer.
"In 'Farrah's Story,'" said Stewart, who produced the Emmy nominated documentary, "Farrah asks 'why isn't there more research on certain types of cancers?'  Anal cancer, which took her life, is one of those cancers. We are honored to be a part of this important research project with Brown University.  This is exactly the kind of research Farrah would want to support."
The mission of the FFF is to provide funding for cutting edge cancer research, to support prevention and awareness, and to help those struggling with cancer. Farrah Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. She established the Foundation before her death in 2009. For information, visit www.thefarrahfawcettfoundation.org and Facebook.
