US actress Farrah Fawcett has been hospitalised in Los Angeles after a fresh setback in her three-year fight against cancer, it has been reported.
Fawcett, 62, was hospitalised on Thursday, People magazine reported on its website, three years after first being diagnosed with cancer in
2006. The actress, best known for her recurring role in hit 1970s television show Charlie's Angels had undergone aggressive chemotherapy in the past and had seen the cancer go into remission before returning in May 2007.
The People report did not give any information about Fawcett's condition and a spokesperson for Fawcett could not be immediately
reached for comment. However, Radaronline.com celebrity news website cited sources close to the star's family and friends as saying Fawcett was unconscious and that loved ones had gathered at the hospital where she was being treated.
The Radar report also said she recently returned from Germany where she had undergone experimental treatment using stem cells. – (Sapa, April 2009)
