Bakker Asks Fans To Pray For Her As She Prepares To Die


Tammy Faye Bakker

Beloved US televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker is close to death as she battles lung cancer, revealing her physicians have stopped treatment.
In a post on her website, Bakker has asked her fans to pray for her as she nears the end of her life.
The brave celebrity writes, "The doctors have stopped trying to treat the cancer and so now it's up to God and my faith."
Bakker, who was first diagnosed with cancer in 1996 and learned the disease had returned to her lungs in 2004, reveals she looks "like a scarecrow" and now weighs a shocking 65 pounds (143.3 kilograms).
She adds, "I need God's miracle to swallow."

The Eyes Of Tammy Faye Review


OK
One of America's true oddities, Tammy Faye Bakker has been maligned for well over a decade now, and it's unfortunate (or not, I guess) that this erstwhile loving documentary of her life won't change the public's conception of her very much. While the picture is basically a dutiful retelling of her rise, fall, and semi-rise again, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato go to such lengths to hokify the film (by having RuPaul narrate and using Babe-esque sock puppets to read the inter-scene title cards) that you can't help but feel poor Tammy is being laughed at. Still, her history is a tragic and eye-opening one, and it's a story that you'll absolutely watch until the end -- even if that end is something of a letdown.
