Actress Farrah Fawcett passed away last Thursday, June 25, after battling cancer since 2006. But she is leaving a legacy for charity.
According to Radar Online, the 62-year-old has left donations and a number of her belongings to shelters for abused women.
The actress played an abused woman in The Burning Bed, a 1984 TV movie. The role – which addressed the issues of spousal abuse and spousal rape – had a profound effect on Fawcett.
Actress Christina Applegate has also urged fans of the Charlie’s Angles star to donate to charities that research cures for cancer in memory of Fawcett.
“Today please donate money to a great cancer organization for research,” Applegate wrote on her Twitter site. “This damn disease has taken another. We must find a cure. Farrah RIP.”
