Jade Goody has sought to comfort her family by telling them they could turn to the sky and she would be the “brightest star up there” when cancer consumes her.
The ‘Big Brother’ celebrity, who has been receiving treatment for cervical cancer, revealed she feared what lay ahead but was ready nevertheless.
The 27-year-old was seen preparing her sons Bobby, five, Freddie, four, and her partner of three years Jack Tweed for the tragic news.
“Whenever you want to see me, look up in the sky and I’ll be the biggest, brightest star up there,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying in a fly-on-the-wall documentary Living With Jade.
Jade has decided to let cameras to continue recording her struggle in a bid to inspire fellow cancer victims in their battle for life.
She said: “I don’t wanna just stop filming halfway through because my hair’s falling out.
“What inspiration is that to anybody? What determination is that to anybody? It’s a diary for myself, to see how bad I was and how better I get and it’s for other people… I’m not the only person on the planet going through it.”
Jade is further bent on defying medics by walking down the aisle on February 22 in a fairytale ceremony, surrounded by family and friends after being given eight weeks to live.
