Anorak | Jade Goody’s Last Mother’s Day

Jade Goody’s Last Mother’s Day

JADE Goody celebrity cancer: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Jade Goody’s celebrity cancer with the OK! memorial, Mother’s Day cards and an up-beat Shilpa.

The Mirror : “DEAR MUMMY Jade’s boys make a poignant card for Mother’s Day”

Jade Goody’s young sons have made her cards for Mother’s Day – touchingly unaware they may never see her alive again.

Unless they read the Mirror.

Jade’s battle has seen the nation take her to its hearts – and may also save thousands of young women’s lives by raising awareness of cervical cancer.

Yesterday, 50 campaigners handed a petition to Downing Street demanding the age for regular smear tests be lowered from 25 to 20, a crusade the courageous star has backed.

Is Jade Goody now a hero for dying?

Its leader Bob Walker, who lost daughter Claire, 23, to the disease six months ago, warmly welcomed Jade’s support and said: “I’m not worried about her celebrity status. She’s a young woman dying at such an early age and leaving two boys behind and that’s what matters. It shouldn’t have to happen to any woman.”

So it’s not about Jade, eh, Max?

Her spokesman Max Clifford added: “She was there in spirit. If she was well enough she would have been there in person. She wanted to hand the petition in herself.

“Jade has been very vocal because of what has happened to her. Her message is, ‘Don’t let what happened to me happen to you’.

Daily Star : “The family pics I m taking to my grave”

Pictures will will never see.

THIS is one happy family snap that tragic Jade Goody will take to her grave.

Apart from that one. And apart from those other ones that will appear in her cancer diary .

Daily Mirror : “Pick of the day: Wendy Richard: To Tell You The Truth, BBC1, 8pm”

She embarked on this documentary in November 2008. Her style may have been different to that of Jade Goody, but by showing the realities of her chemo she planned to be a beacon of hope to anyone watching…

Fact and fiction can you spot the difference?

“You must never give in,” she tells Natalie Cassidy, who played her screen daughter-in-law Sonia. “You’ve got to fight.”

Her death last month left those who knew her saddened and shocked. Because, as her screen son James Alexandrou reminds her, half joking: “If I was cancer, I’d be scared of you.”
