Jade Goody: "Short Time To Live"

Jade Goody:

Ailing celebrity Jade Goody only has a short time to live, and has reportedly already said goodbye to her loved ones.

The former star of Big Brother in the UK, diagnosed with terminal—and spreading—cervical cancer, recently underwent surgery to ease the pain caused by her illness and is recuperating from the procedure.

"It's heartbreaking to see Jade like this, she's such a brave girl. She really needs to be surrounded by her friends and family at this time," a friend told the Daily Mail.

Her new husband Jack Tweedy was recently found guilty of assaulting a teenager with a golf club, but has been allowed to see his wife and apologize for his criminal behavior in the past.

"I was given permission to spend the night with Jade. I'm so happy—I just wish I could be there all the time. I told her I'm so sorry for my behavior in the past. It's meant I haven't been there for her the whole time," Tweedy told the press.

"I told her I've let everyone down but I've learned my lesson. And I said I'm worried that, once again, I won't be there for her and the family when they really need me."

Goody's publicist Max Clifford acknowledged the media coverage of the dying Goody could be considered slightly distasteful, but it has been something Jade wanted.

Goody has said in the past that she wants to ensure the ongoing education of her two young sons by selling pictures of her wedding to Tweedy to magazines, and documenting her cancer battle with a television special.

"Jade likes and enjoys the media spotlight. You have to marry all of these things. But if she continues to be in the kind of pain and condition she is in, then my advice increasingly will be, 'Don't you think enough is enough?,'" Clifford said.

"We're hoping and praying that Jade pulls through, but the fact of the matter is that she now only has a short time to live," he confirmed.

    It's wonderful to read all these sincere comments. I am so tired or reading stories that Jade's fans 'obsession' with her illness is somehow macabre. Jade let us all into her life and that makes us feel we know her as a friend. If a friend of ours was seriously ill, of course we'd want to have regular updates on how they're doing, 'are they worse? better? what's being done about their pain? etc. I wish Jade and her family peace at this time.

    Yes, this is a sad situation but there is always hope. I would recommend that she go to You Tube and learn about low dose naltrexone or to lowdosenaltrexone.org, a miracle drug that has and is saving so many lives,including cancer. If one joins the low dose naltrexone or LDN support group on Yahoo, one ask others which doctors in their town will prescribe it. Many doctors do not know about this wonder drug because the patent expired many years ago and the drug companies will not promote nor do studies on a cheap drug. Go to Case Health and read stories of others on this drug or go to type in on google, those who suffer much know much. This drug is saving my life. I have been on it for over three years and have not had to take the harmful antiretrovirals. Check it out, as it could save your life or the life of someone that you love!

    The current situation is very sad. So much suffering will not go well with those who have been diagnosed with this disease. It does seem to me that there is, no cure for this disease and it doesn't matter whether you are rich or poor. As far as Cancer and its treatment is concerned, I feel nothing that completely cures this menace , will appear in the next 100 years. Massive amounts of money and research is needed right now! It should be a global effort.

    All I want to say is how I feel about this lovely girl, she isnt perfect but who is we all make mistakes in life, but she does not deserve this, to die so young and leave those lovely children is heartbreaking, it makes me so sad to see it. I wish that she could survive but knowing cancer so well I know she wont, but god bless her and those boys.
