LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ryan O'Neal says he and Farrah Fawcett will watch a documentary about her battle against cancer together.

O'Neal says he expects Fawcett to take "great pride" in the video diary, "Farrah's Story," airing Friday on NBC. O'Neal and Fawcett, who had a long romantic relationship that ended in the late 1990s, have remained close and have a son, Redmond.

The documentary was made with the help of Fawcett's friend, Alana Stewart, who filmed Fawcett as she underwent treatment. Stewart says the former "Charlie's Angels" star is a fighter who hasn't given up trying to overcome her disease.

The 62-year-old Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. It has spread to her liver.
