Farrah Fawcett, who is struggling to overcome cancer, is in the hospital and not doing well, a source close to the actress has confirmed to Access Hollywood.

Although her condition is deteriorating, it is likely Fawcett will leave the hospital Monday, the source added.

In addition, Fawcett’s longtime companion, Ryan O’Neal, is working to get the couple’s 24-year-old son, Redmond O’Neal, out of a Los Angeles jail so he can visit his ailing mother for what may be one final time.

The news of Fawcett’s condition comes on the heels of Ryan O’Neal’s revelation that he plans to marry Fawcett.

The 68-year-old actor says in an interview with Barbara Walters for ABC’s “20/20” that he asked his longtime companion to marry him and “she’s agreed.” O’Neal says they will tie the knot “as soon as she can say yes.”

Walters’ interview with O’Neal airs Friday.

Fawcett was diagnosed in 2006 with anal cancer that has spread to her liver.

O’Neal says the 62-year-old actress is “fighting for her life,” but despite her declining health, they will “absolutely” get married.
