Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

For thirty years, Farrah Fawcett and Alana Stewart were friends, and in that time they'd been through it all. But in the fall of 2006, a test of their friendship arose unlike any other they'd faced: Farrah's cancer diagnosis.

Together, Farrah and Alana were relentless in their pursuit of a cure, and in these intimate and personal diaries, Alana shares her thoughts on the journey she and Farrah embarked upon as they battled this illness to the end. From the importance of selflessness to the undeniable value of faith, Alana's diary entries demonstrate how, even in the face of this debilitating disease, Farrah continued to teach everyone around her about the courage and power of friendship.

With candid stories about aging, marriage, motherhood, and faith—all topics Alana and Farrah laughed and cried about over the years—My Journey with Farrah provides a moving tribute to Hollywood's golden girl and an inspiring celebration of Farrah's life.

Everyone should have a friend like Alana to go everywhere with you when your so sick.
Meema Z
The portion of the book dealing directly with Farrah's cancer treatments and her fight to survive is so minimal that this could have been a short story.
R. E. WILLARD
Thanks Alana for doing a great job on the book, for the love you had for her and for the beautiful friendship you shared with Farrah.

This is such a betrayal of a woman who valued her privacy. The portion of the book dealing directly with Farrah's cancer treatments and her fight to survive is so minimal that this could have been a short story. Why do we need to know about poor Alana leaving hearth and home (one, apparently, she can ill afford) and presenting herself as a near saint for flying first class to Germany and having an affair with a younger man to bolster her ego. She could not have whined more about her lack of money or rotten luck with men. Dear God, for the first time I felt sorry for Rod Stewart having been married to this self absorbed woman. There is nothing here that was not in the documentary save some salacious details that add nothing to the fight Farrah was in. If hawking this kind of book makes for a friend, I'll rely on enemies (at least, with them, you know where you stand). Nice touch, Alana, descibing how wretched poor Farrah looked on her deathbed. And yes, I battled cancer and watched a loved one succumb so I do know how much one can sacrifice if one is not so shallow. If you must read it, go to the library.................

Format: Hardcover
Stewart's sense of entitlement and self-pity feeds Alana's fear of old age, alone, without financial means. I don't know why I should be annoyed, being far from self-less, myself. But also, Alana places an uncomfortable priorty on her own birthday parties and gifts received. Nothing wrong with that until it prioritizes self over the greater needs of others, specifically loved ones.

And then, Alana's belief system leads her to believe that God puts Mimmo (a guy she meets in Europe while helping Farrah)in her life "for a reason" that turns out to be sex.

And she calls in these "healers" that supposedly are able to work magic (One healer, by rubbing coconut oil on Farrah's arms). Ms. Stewart dabbles in Christian Science for a bit and then is off searching in other directions.

In the beginning of this tale, Alana seems convinced that cancer can be meditated away. She actually advises Farrah to hold off on surgery because Alana's astrologer says so.

Though this book is Alana's honest effort to honor Farrah's friendship, it is also a hard look at an aging beauty unable to grow into her true self.

When I first started reading this book I seriously thought that Alana Stewart would tell about all the hours she spent by Farrah's side. Nothing could be further from the truth. This book shows how self centered Alana is, it's all about her. This book shows that Alana was NOT always by Farrah's side as she claims. It shows she went to Germany with Farrah...sometimes seemingly grudgingly. And when she SHOULD have been by Farrah's side..she was off having sex with an italian chef. Ok..so Farrah said to go ahead and have fun. Heeeellllloooo...when your friend is having treatments for cancer, you STAY with your friend. You just don't go off and have sex with someone you don't know. At the end Alana says that she put all of her stuff on the back burner and put Farrah first. NOT. Alana, if you had been a true friend to Farrah you would have been literally at her side, day and night. You were not at all. If you had been a true friend you would not have went off and had sex with a stranger. If you had been a true friend you would not have worried about every little thing that was going to affect you. You would not have went to parties and left your friend home alone. You would not have done alot of the things that you had done. There's so much more I could say but I would probably quite literally get in trouble. Thank God I checked this book out from the library instead of buying it. I will not be recommending this book to anyone. Hopefully Alana Stewart will see some of these reviews and rethink about what it means to be a TRUE FRIEND. Because she is not one and she was not one to Farrah.

It seems Farrah was used all of her life. And now this. Who wants to bet Ms. Thing ends up with Ryan?? They're just alike.
It amazed me the book was out before poor Farrah was barely in the ground.
I was a Farrah fan when she was showing off Mercury Cougars on commercials. I remember running in to see her for just those few seconds. She had such magic and style. It appears to me, via photos particularly, A. was possibly trying to copy her..? Whatever. No one could best Farrah. She was and stays an original.
I cried when Farrah was lost...and I too have lost family to cancer so I know how painful it is to those who love you. She was so brave to make the documentary. Who better to tell her story than those by her side. But all this was, was a trash- rehash, 'poor me,' all-about-me, way to make money. &*%# Alana Stewart. Rest in peace, Farrah. They can't suck off of you anymore.

My daughter bought me this book for Christmas because she knows how much I love and admire Farrah, I wish she hadn't wasted her money. The book started out as a loving tribute to Farrah but soon turned into a self tribute to Alana's "love" life. Reading about Alana's "hot sex" and "it's a wonder I can even walk" references is vile and disgusting! If Alana thought she was trying to make her ex's jealous by writing such garbage I believe it backfired on her. Instead she sounded old and desperate. Save your money and instead donate to Farrah's Cancer Foundation.
