Jaclyn Smith opened up to ET about how she pays homage to her late "Charlie's Angels" co-star, Farrah Fawcett, by continuing her legacy of goodwill.

"I think she wanted to leave behind a legacy," the 69-year-old actress told ET. "It's wonderful to have watched her never give up."

Smith has been active with the Farrah Fawcett Foundation since the actress died of cancer six years ago. According to the website, the foundation's mission is to "provide funding for cutting edge cancer research, prevention and to help those struggling with cancer today."

The mission is fitting for Smith, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. Last month, Smith attended the Farrah Fawcett Foundation Presents First Annual Tex-Mex Fiesta Benefitting Stand Up to Cancer in Los Angeles, where she was honored with a Shining Star award.

In addition to her work with the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, Smith has also teamed up with famed hair stylist Jose Eber and the City of Hope to provide wigs for cancer patients.

"Men can shave their head and look cool and modern and trendy, but a woman really has to have a sense of self to be able to carry that off," Smith said. "You have to have these added enhancements to bring you back up."
