Jade Goody’s final months have found their way in a new book titled Forever in My Heart.
Publishers HarperCollins dubbed the diary as a "modern day parable", and said that the Brit reality TV star had led the book to be a "love letter" to her sons, Bobby, 5, and Freddy, 4.
"This is Jade in her own words,” the Telegraph quoted Belinda Budge, the managing director of HarperNon-Fiction, as saying.
"It is impossible not to be moved by her heart-warming voice which comes through loud and clear on every page of this last diary.
"This emotional book tells a fascinating story of our time, a story of a woman who rose to fame as a controversial reality TV star and has now won admiration in the eyes of many for the fortitude with which she is facing terminal cancer," she added.
The 27-year-old was said to have received a substantial amount for the deal that would see a percentage of profits going to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Meanwhile, Goody continues her battle against cervical cancer, and is feared to have just few hours to live before reaching her end.
Her jailbird hubby Jack Tweed and mum Jackie have been by her side as she slips in and out of consciousness.
