    Farrah Fawcett's Producer Says Actress To Leave Hospital Soon

    Craig Nevius, Farrah Fawcett's friend and the producer of her documentary "A Wing and a Prayer," which chronicles her three-year fight against cancer, says the actress is not "on death's door," and "will be going home very shortly."

    Nevius also told the Associated Press that the actress was successfully recovering from a procedure she underwent on Monday at a Los Angeles area hospital.

    "She's on the mend and will be going home very shortly," Nevius told the AP. "She's doing fantastic. Her fight goes on. … She's not going anywhere anytime soon."

    Nevius added Farrah is "not on death's door."

    The 62-year-old star has reportedly been receiving care at a Los Angeles area hospital since Thursday.

    "She had a minor procedure. That procedure led to a small amount of bleeding into a muscle in her abdominal wall," Fawcett's Los Angeles cancer specialist, Dr. Lawrence Piro told the Associated Press, adding that it was "a simple procedure."

    Farrah has been battling with cancer since her diagnosis in September 2006. Following chemotherapy and radiation, she was diagnosed as cancer free, only to find out in spring 2007 that the cancer had returned.

    In February of 2009, Nevius told Access Hollywood that the star was doing very well since receiving an advanced treatment in Germany.

    And on Friday, Access reported that "Wing," which follows Farrah's courageous fight against the disease, will air on NBC. A premiere date has not been set.
