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.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.
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.

I would give it 1/4 of a star if I could. What a ridiculous attempt to capitalize on her friend's suffering. She violates Farrah's privacy and over shares her own sex life. Read morePublished 7 months ago by JT
