So terribly sad
I was so sad this morning to read that Jade Goody had passed away overnight, losing her battle with Cervical Cancer. 27 years old is too young to die and by her own admission, this could have been prevented if she had been more attentive to her history of suspect smear/pap results. But Jade has done more than any other person, to raise awareness of this killer disease for women. Over the last few weeks requests for tests have gone up by huge percentages in the UK thanks to her.Jade may not have always led a perfect life in the spotlight of being a reality TV star, but she was always true to herself. Her personal choices may have at times seemed like the wrong ones, but she was very much led by her heart. She was obviously a good mum to her little boys and the saddest part of all this is what will happen to them. Sadly although she left them financially secure, those that now have custody of the boys are less than reliable.She fought her battle with cancer constantly in the public eye and received some criticism for it. But I applaud her, not only did she make enough money to ensure her boys security financially, but she also made more impact on the fight against Cervical Cancer than any other person or advertising campaign. Jade fought it with her usual blunt approach, a smile on her face, dignity and determination, as can be seen below. This is her legacy and many lives will undoubtedly be saved because of her tragic death.Nobody leads a perfect life and Jade was no angel at times. But I will remember her as very brave, and smiling with her two little boys in the lovely picture above. God Bless you Jade.
