Farrah 3.0 and 1.0 by Artist Noel Cruz

Noel Cruz never ceases to amaze! His talents are unparalleled and his abilities as a painter and hair sculptor are unmatched! Yesterday Noel touched up Farrah 3.0 (shading and a little more eye make-up) and then went to work on her hair. He gave her the classic Farrah Fawcett style (feathered hair just perfect for this angel) and gave Farrah 1.0 (the Mattel Black Label Farrah Fawcett Commemorative Doll) the Up-Do of the fashion season! Farrah 1.0 (in the pink dress) is wearing a gown by DressMaker Details. Farrah 3.0 wears Mattel's Tea Party Fashion and a blue sheath by DressMaker Details.  Farrah 3.0 is originally the Ghost Barbie by Mattel! Did you know what doll Noel used?

Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute receives grant from Farrah Fawcett Foundation to establish patient assistance fund

Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute receives grant from Farrah Fawcett Foundation to establish patient assistance fund

DETROIT, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center has received a $25,000 grant through the Farrah Fawcett Foundation to establish the Farrah Fawcett Fund for Patient Assistance at Karmanos.

The fund will be administered by Karmanos' Social Work Department and will provide assistance to patients being treated at the center. The fund will help patients defray the costs of medication, gas, rent/mortgage expenses, household utility costs and other basic daily needs.

"Many of our patients need help with everyday expenses as they cope with their cancer treatments," said Larmender Davis, director of Social Work and Support Services at Karmanos. "It's wonderful that this foundation has recognized the needs of our patients, particularly those who have limited resources. This grant will ease the minds of many of our patients so they can focus on their recovery."

The Farrah Fawcett Foundation's mission is to support cancer research, help those battling cancer, and to focus on prevention and awareness.

"Farrah was grateful that she was able to fund her own treatment," said Alana Stewart , president of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation. "She realized, however, that there are many less fortunate than her. The foundation has helped establish the 'The Farrah Fawcett Fund for Patient Assistance' at different cancer centers around the country. Patients that the fund serves are desperately in need of financial aid while undergoing treatment.  We are also committed to raising cancer awareness, such as early detection and the support of more studies in the prevention of this dreadful disease."
Farrah Fawcett , star of the original Charlie's Angels and many well-known Hollywood and television films, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. She established the foundation before her death in 2009.  She was 62 years of age.
"We are extremely grateful that a foundation, established in memory of a true Hollywood star who was also a generous and philanthropic individual, has chosen Karmanos to help our patients," said Nick Karmanos , senior vice president of Institutional Relations at Karmanos. "We thank the Farrah Fawcett Foundation for this very generous support."
