Jade Goody's Last Wishes For Her Sons

goody

This is such a sad story…I hadn’t really been aware of it until now.

Barely able to move or speak, British reality TV star Jade Goody, who has just weeks to live as cancer consumes her body, summoned her strength to have herself and her sons christened in London on March 7th.

Despite being in great pain, Jade was determined to lay down spiritual foundations for herself and her boys, Bobby, 5, and Freddie, 4.

“It was important for me and my boys to be christened, so that when I’m not here they feel they can speak to me whenever they want,” said Jade, 27. “I want my boys to know  that when I do go, I am safe and looking over them.” 

Below is a brief excerpt from Jade’s interview with OK! magazine.

OK!: It must be terrible to know that you won’t see your sons grow up.
Jade: I’m devastated that I won’t see my boys grow into men and get married. That’s what moms dream of, isn’t it?

OK!: How do you want to be remembered?
Jade: I want to be remembered as the one who irritated and entertained people in equal measure! But I also want to be remembered as the girl who put up a fight. I was given a death sentence, but I didn’t let it kill me. I fought it, got married, got christened. I’ve achieved more in 27 years than some achieve in their lifetime. I could bitch about dying young, but at the end of the day, I can look back on my life and be proud of what  I have done.

Thoughts and prayers to Jade and her family.

    RIP Jade.
    Such sad news that she passed away this morning-on mothers day of all days.
    Whether she was loved or hated, 2 young boys lost their mum this morning. As a mum of 2, that is my nightmare.

    #26, actually she is giving some money to Cancer Research UK. She has been writing a diary about her battle with cancer which will be published in a few months time and the profits will all go to Cancer Research.
    She doesn’t have to do this.

    From what I’ve seen and read, she has faced this situation with utter grace, dignity and strength…which is a credit to her character. I hope some of her strength passes onto her sons and they can make it through this most difficult of situations.

    I commend this lady for making the most of her time and for doing her best to leave her children with a better future than what she had. She is only doing what most of us would do in the same situation, she knows that there will be stories and photographs from her dying, so she took control of the situation and is turning a profit. So what???? What is the harm in that???

    God bless Jade, her family and her beautiful boys….I hope all you ladies never, ever have to go through something like this in your lifetimes.

    Mary, the left one on the picture (Jeff) is the father of her sons, the right man is her husband

  7. mary says

    are the two little ones her sons? are both of the men the dads or is one an older son? what a sad story

  8. Missy_D says

    Okay Jade wants to raise money for her kids, fair point. But is she giving any money at all to a cancer charity who will help other sufferers? is she? NO shes keeping it all for herself. If only every cancer sufferer gets a much press as her!

  9. cheetah says

    Im a mom, and i have had cancer 3 times now. If the doctors would tell me i would not be around for my sons next birthday, i would do pretty much anything to earn money for my kids. She is trying to give them a good life even when she is gone. I cant blame her. I hope she goes in peace and i wish those boys all the strength they need in the upcoming years..

    If her story saves just one woman’s life, it’s worth her going public with her illness. PAP tests in the UK have sky rocketed because of Jade. Plus, the UK is thinking of lowering the age a woman should have her first PAP test. I can’t believe they don’t start those at 18 like we do here in the U.S. So, going public has helped hundreds if not thousands of women. Perhaps this is the purpose of Jade’s life. To save others with her suffering.

  11. Dee says

    To all the insensitive tools knocking her for making money off her illness-she is trying to secure her sons future-how could you fault her for that? How could you judge a terminally ill 27 year old? WOuld you like to be in her shoes???

  12. maya says

    I hear she is dying tonight or tomorrow at the very latest, so I am not going to say bad things about her. Her sons are very handsome, especially Freddy. She has such beautiful eyes.

  13. ashlyn says

    if i was dying from cancer. i would spend every single moment with my family and friend .instead of making money from this horrible disease . I’ve achieved more in 27 years than some achieve in their lifetime by what going on big brother and being a racist. making money of cancer wow what a wonderful person she is not. there are way more people who achieved more in their lifetime famous or not like people who help sick children doctor teacher firefighter cops

  14. carleigh says

    In the United States we can get a pap smear test at any point, in fact doctors and the AMA recommend getting them as soon as a female is sexually active.

    This story has truly made me aware of the inconsistencies in health care in England vs. the U.S. I know “most of” the people from England pretty much dislike us and everything about us, but we do have some of the best preventative health care in the world today and England needs to get modernized and realize how virulent and quickly cervical cancer and overtake the womans body.

    Jade’s story is truly awful and heartbreaking. I see pictures and read the stories and I just can’t help but tear up and feel so bad for her children and her.

    I watched my grandfather die from metastatic prostate cancer two years ago and it ravaged him and it was just gut wrenching to watch. My heart breaks for her little boys, I couldn’t imagine leaving behind children so young.

    Leave this woman alone, she is dying and will probably have passed away before many of you even read this blog. It is so sad and I know she’s not the only one suffering from cancer, but she is the one with her story in the papers.

    From what I’ve seen and read, she has faced this situation with utter grace, dignity and strength…which is a credit to her character. I hope some of her strength passes onto her sons and they can make it through this most difficult of situations.

    If you don’t like the stories, just like we always say about what you read on here…pass it by and move along then. Fortunately we do live in an era where there is freedom of speech and if we don’t like or agree with something or someone, we can ignore it and not read it.

    I commend this lady for making the most of her time and for doing her best to leave her children with a better future than what she had. She is only doing what most of us would do in the same situation, she knows that there will be stories and photographs from her dying, so she took control of the situation and is turning a profit. So what???? What is the harm in that???

    God bless Jade, her family and her beautiful boys….I hope all you ladies never, ever have to go through something like this in your lifetimes.

    Good for her. She’s taking a really terrible situation and hopefully helping her boys be set to life – not to mention the fact that she’s probably influencing a lot of young women to go get tested themselves.

  16. Naomi - UK says

    I have read countless articles about her and interviews wiht her since her diagnosis and i think that she is a wonderfully brave woman who is using her last weeks to raise awareness of cervical cancer and to save as much money for her sons. Those who jugde her are hatefull people. her illness is so fierce and yet she still carries on her battle when many would have given up…. and why? for her boys.

    It will be a sad day when her time comes to an end…. good luck to her family…. god be with you jade x x x

  17. YES MAAM! says

    FYI— Charlie and Brook Sheen welcomed twin boys- Bob and Max. Add this to your list thing. Nice, simple names. I like!

    The UK govt. is reviewing the age that smear test (pap test in the US?) start in England as a result of the publicity that Jade has generated. They start at 25 there while in Scotland and Wales it is 20. Also the amount of smear tests undertaken have gone up. So I think she has done some good as a result of her actions.

    Hello! Call please on advertising(adsense). I quite have nothing am from after crisis I was discharged from a favourite office. My children starve.
    Thank you.

  20. Adele (UK) says

    I have read this morning that her publicist said she literally has hours to live & is celebrating Mother’s Day a week early today with her sons.

  21. Tanya says

    Jade may have done alot wrong in her life, and she may be ‘milking’ this for all its worth, but think of the thousands of women she has helped by making this disease something no-one can ignore… I think that she has the best intentions and that she just wants to make sure she leaves her boys well provided for – wouldn’t you all do the same if you knew you were going to leave them? You’d want to make sure they have everything they need & anyway – she gave her last interview & has made the decision to just go home & spend her last weeks with her family so lay off with the criticism… She’s dying for heavens sake – and at least she’s doing something good with the end of her life.

  22. Granny says

    Love doesn’t pay for college, buy clothes or put food on the table. I believe that she can love her children and still if possible leave them something for her future. Working mothers do it everyday. She just has less time to do it in. And I’m certain she would trade publically having to die for a humdrum job for the next 20 years.

  23. Star says

    Jade is making as much money as possible before she dies in order to secure her sons future – particularly a good private education – which is something she never had. She grew up in a very deprived area and had a very deprived and troubled childhood basically having to take care ofher mother from a young age as her mother descended into serious drug dependancy and then lost the use of her arm after an accident. Se had little cntact with her father.

    For all her faults – and there are certainly some,butthen who on this earth is wthout fault – she is a young woman wanting ti secure her children financial future and give them the education and financial stability she never had.

    She wil be dead within 4 weeks and she will leave behind her 4 and 5 year old sons – little boys who can not be held accountable for their mothers sins and ignornace. They are but innocent children who will have list their mother at a horribly young age. I wish those beautiful little boys all the luck, best wishes and love in the world and am sure their biological father will make a grand job of bringing them up albeit without their mother.

    Sorry if this sounds so harsh – but she made a theatre of her sickness! She is in every magazine, every blog, she just sells a story after a story, she descibe every day of her life and makes it so pathetic! I know she is trying to make some money for her kids ( she said so herself), but excuse me, I don’t have to see her face everywhere! I am sorry for her condition, but she should not make a sensation as if she was the only person dying of cancer! She reminds me of that crazy mum of octuplets – HEY, they are just trying to make money!!! She should be spending her last days with her family rather than giving 10 interviews a day! I know some of you will be shocked by my opinion – but at least I am honest!!!!

  25. aubrey madeline says

    the only thing i know is she getting lots of money from her wedding pictures and many other events from her last dying days

  26. Ronnie says

    ‘She seems So loving’ number 6?
    really?
    She is a ha teful ra.cist who is milking this illness even in her diei.ng moments in order to get money, which she claims is for her sons.
    they need their mothers love in her last moments, not tons of money when shes gone.
    she should be spending these last days with them rather than making massive amounts of money that the boys could easily live without.
    she makes me sick, she has made a mockery of can.cer sufferers!

  28. DMITZ says

    This is so heartbreaking. I’m so proud of her for being so strong for her boys. I feel for them having to grow up without their mother. She seems so loving.

  30. cyberkitten40 says

    So so sad 🙁 #2? ya i really think she’s worried bout how she’s lookin right now…NOT! U should be ashamed of yourself

  31. Adele (UK) says

    She was only diagnosed last August with Cervical Cancer so it’s sad to know how quickly it has affected her. Everytime I read about her I get filled up with tears.

    #2 – nice comment to make about a dying person, are you a picture of perfection??

    Look for pictures of her with her hair, she is really pretty.
