JADE GOODY’S Celebrity Cancer: The boys, the bravery and the tears…

MIRROR (front page): I CAN’T TELL MY BOYS ,” says Jade Goody .

Maybe there’s just no telling Jade’s boys, who as well as being impossible to instruct are also unable to read front-page news headlines and acres of news about brave Jade?

Here are Jade’s boys now, off to buy some sweets and comics from the newsagents. Hey look, kids, there’s mum on the cover of the paper.

Boys : “What does it say Mr, Anglo-Asian Newsagent, sir?”
Newsagent (wipes tear): “JADE GOODY IS FANTASTIC!
Boys : “Yaaaaaaaay”

Thankfully, Jade is leaving behind a video diary of her battle with cancer, courtesy of Living TV. Heartening to know that should it not go well for Jade, the boys will able to see and her her suffering.

Jackiey Budden revealed that Jade, 27, has not been able to see her sons Bobby and Freddie, aged five and four, for almost two weeks.

And she said Jade is determined to be well enough to see little Bobby perform in his school play on Thursday.

Jackiey said: “Freddie’s too young to know what’s going on, and we are determined to try and keep it like that.”

Ignorance is bliss, says Goody.

“But Bobby’s got an idea things aren’t good. He asked me if mummy will come to his school play on Thursday.

“I looked at his little face and said ‘She is still quite poorly, darling. I don’t know if she will be at the play, but your Nan and Daddy will be there.’ He just looked at me and nodded. Fingers crossed she’ll get there to see him.”

NOTW (front): “Jade: Keep the cameras rolling.”

Can we put the footage on Newsround, you know, for the boys?

BRAVE Jade Goody has won the support of the nation as she continues her battle against cancer.
The Big Brother star is facing a grim fight for life after doctors said her disease had spread and is pinning her hopes on new “miracle drug” Hycamtin.

This week we are showing previously unseen – and unedited – footage of Jade, 27, talking about her battle, with a new clip every day.

In today’s candid video the mother-of-two tells our columnist Carole Malone about the moment she knew months of chemotherapy had robbed her of her hair – and how her son reacted.

The NOTW has daily videos of Jade crying.


In a heartbreaking plea, the former Big Brother contestant begged other victims to take up their offers of smear tests.

She told them: “Don’t ignore the symptoms I had.

“If you’re not happy with the first diagnosis, see someone else. Don’t leave it too late.”

And take a camera crew along. And get an agent. You must, must, must get an agent before your smear.


BRAVE Jade Goody is to be a £10million lifesaver.

Brave Jade you know, the one who’s always crying…

But despite the spread of the disease, 27-year-old Jade is determined to help raise £10million for cancer charities.

A family source said: “She’s going to fight – both for her own life and to save the lives of others.

“She wants to do what she can and use her image to help make millions pour into charity coffers. She’d love to help raise £10million.”

So she’s hasn’t actually raised the millions yet, but she’d like to. Wow!

MIRROR : Could I have cancer like Jade ?”

Dear Dr Cath,
I have heard on the news about Jade Goody’s cancer. Now I’m worried. I’m 23 and have asked my GP for a smear test but they refused because I’m too young. How can this be right? Jade is only 27 and, sadly, she’s suffering.
