Fawcett's cancer spreads to liver

Farrah Fawcett is being treated for anal cancer that has spread to her liver and has been hospitalized in Los Angeles for a complication from a routine treatment, a producer who worked with the actress and her doctor said Monday.

She was declared in remission on Feb. 2, 2007, but three months later, scans showed "not only had it recurred, it metastasized to her liver," producer Craig Nevius said.
