The fact that her plight serves to hit home the message that cancer can be detected and even cured, if checked, is fantastic; that big mouth has finally found a captive audience.
Hi my mum is suffering from terminal uterian cancer. It has spread all over her body and on Saturday I thought I was saying goodbye to her for the last time. But she is a fighter and when I saw her yesterday she was sitting up in bed doing a crossword. She is on oxygen permanently and has quite a lot of pain.
We have our visa but will not use it until the inevitable happens.
I feel sorry for Jade, but feel angry that she has has better care than my mum. Not through want of trying on my part!
Sorry for the downer, can't wait to start over in Aus hopefully in October.
I think it is amazing that people can be negative about Jade Goody, especially considering the circumstances...
At the end of the day she is a not too bright, vulnerable girl who was demonised by BB. Yes, she has made a fortune and will continue to make a fortune until she dies - probably on TV. So what? I'm sure Jade has learned many of life's lesson from her naivety and crassness, but unlike most of us she has done it publicly. I didn't rate her much when she first hit the screens but I thought she was always a vulnerable and therefore easily exploited girl.
As you say, this publicity has a positive effect - young girls who do identify with Jade may well be having themselves checked out earlier.
Jade has stage 4 cancer and will die soon - a young life cut short. Two boys will be left motherless at a very young age. Her mother will lose a daughter - a tragedy in anyone's book I would have thought.
As for the level of care, I agree, everone should receive the highest level of care, regardless.

Jade has had a captive audience for many years. Otherwise she would not of made a living!!
This has brought her happiness, she has got to meet and do things she would not of experienced otherwise.
Jade had a poor up bringing and may be she used the press as a form of emotion and acceptance.
Using the term " that big mouth has finallty found a captive audience" is not nice.
No one deserves to leave there kids when they are so young.
The woman is trying to make sure her children will be well looked after. This is what any parent would want. To make sure there children are cared for and happy.
Not everyone will agree with Jade behaviour in the past or now.
But as adults you should be mature enough to disagree and not insulting someone who is dying.
Has anyone seen "Jade - The Next Chapter" on Living TV? I watched it and saw a completely different side to her. She's very kind and down to earth. Very friendly. I feel really terrible that this is happening to her :(
I seem to have started off quite a debate with this post!
I just wasn't sure if it would make it to the news in Oz, and although I am no great fan of Jade's, (I don't even watch Big Brother), it is a very sad story and really makes you realise that cancer can hit anyone at anytime. I did see her once, at McDonalds of all places, just having lunch along with the rest of us, and she was really nice to the
people who asked her for her autograph.
Obviously quite a few of us on here have had to face cancer, with loved ones. My Mum died from lymphoma (cancer of the lymph glands) a couple of years ago and it was such a horrible experience. It's difficult to get the images out of my head of how she looked just before she died. I try to remember her how she was when she was healthy. My heart goes out to anyone having to go through that at the moment, regardless of who they are or how 'good' they are.
