Farrah Fawcett - Farrah Fawcett's Charity Barbie Doll

Farrah Fawcett Barbie dolls are being sold to raise money for her charity.

The 'Charlie's Angels' star - who died in 2009 at the age of 62 following a three-year battle with cancer - has had her likeness reproduced as a small figurine by Mattel, with some proceeds going to The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which is run by her long-time friend Alana Stewart.

Alana told Fox News: "We're all very excited about it, it's a great tribute to her and part of the proceeds go to the foundation to benefit cancer research and help people. Her aim was really to help in cutting-edge research and to help people that are actually struggling with cancer now, so that's really the mission of the foundation. It's really wonderful for her memory and for her legacy and for her fans."

The doll is dressed in a one-piece red bathing suit, similar to the one made famous in the iconic poster of the actress that has sold over six million copies with the doll in an identical pose.

The likeness - which went on sale in July priced $34.95 - has already sold out on several websites.
