Ryan: Farrah Asked Me “Am I Going to Make It?”

An ailing Farrah Fawcett has expressed doubt that she'll be able to beat the cancer that robbed the star of her signature blonde locks and has left her bed-ridden, longtime partner Ryan O'Neal said.

"She asked me once, 'Am I going to make it?' She asked me that a couple weeks ago. I said, 'Yea, sure, you'll make it. And if you don't, I'll go with you,'" Ryan O'Neal told the "Today" show in interviews that will air Wednesday and Thursday .

Fawcett, 62, has battled anal cancer for more than two years but took a turn for the worse about "five or six months ago," O'Neal said, according to Usmagazine.com.

The "Charlie's Angels" star is bed-ridden and has lost all her hair -- and is surrounded by friends and family members who anticipate the actress may be facing her final days, he told People magazine last week.   

"I know this, that in the last two years I loved her more than I've ever loved her -- ever, " he said. "She's so much more of a woman ... powerful, courageous, fearless and all those adjectives. And I look at her with awe." 

Farrah's reps downplayed O'Neal's comments last week that treatment "has pretty much ended" and told Usmagazine.com that the actress is in "stable condition"  and that doctors in Germany were working on developing alternative medicine to treat the actress.

"She never stopped getting treatment," her rep said Monday.  

 Farrah was believed to be cancer-free in Feb. 2007, and appeared healthy "for a couple years" before her condition deteriorated, O'Neal said.

"She was athletic and healthy and hungry and beautiful," he said. "Everything was just as you remember about her."
