Forever In My Heart book. I did not follow the story of Jade Goody until the news of her cancer.

Forever In My Heart book. Jade Goody swept to fame on Big Brother in 2002  . I was overwhelmed with compassion for a young mother suffering such horrible agony and who soon would be torn from her children. I was also revolted and enraged by the heartless and pompous elites who were born to privilege who bullied her mercilessly in her dying months through the media and anonymously through the internet. This was class hatred in it it's purest form.

Jade's heart-breaking diary of her fight against terminal cancer and her final precious months with her beloved family. In August 2008 Jade Goody received the shattering news that she had cervical cancer. She was only 27 years old. But with her usual strength of character.

Foreword by Jackiey Budden. Watching my daughter grow so ill with cancer has been a living nightmare. God has thrown some challenges at Jade and this one she tried so hard to fight for her boys. These diaries show just how hard she fought

Foreword by Jackiey Budden. Chapter 1 - The Horrible News. Chapter 2 - Lots of Tests. Chapter 3 - Getting Away From It All. Chapter 4 - Losing Jack. These diaries show just how hard she fought. Despite the pain and the horrible treatments, her wicked sense of humour shines through on every page. Jade’s courage and love for her family and friends is clear for everyone to see. I hope people feel inspired by her honesty. Jade always tells things like they are.

I got my things together somehow then I was taken to a side door and shown out by the production team. I hardly had any time to say goodbye to the other contestants. I was just rushed away. A car took me to a hotel somewhere. I spent the night on my own, constantly on the phone trying to ring people. I was on the other side of the world and I needed my friends and loved ones so badly. First I phoned my mum. She was staying with a friend in a caravan and the signal was really bad. In August 2008 Jade Goody received the shattering news that she had cervical cancer ry on with life as normal with her two little boys Bobby and Freddy. Fully updated with new material from her family, Forever In My Heart is Jade's final 'love letter' to her two little boys.

Jade Goody was entirely open about why she was publishing hers: to make money. It is not to be expected, then, that we will glimpse the inner workings of Jade's soul in this book. In fact, Forever in My Heart ends with a "wishlist" of experiences she wants to bequeath to her sons, Bobby and Freddy, with the money her media dash towards death has raised. Number one is "to visit a third world country and do things like make mud huts". But from its first sentence ("I'd been in the Indian Big Brother house for three days"), what it lacks in finesse, it makes up for with pathos - both in its most tragic moments and, less deliberately, in the details of everyday life. Despite undergoing extensive chemotherapy, Jade discovered the cancer was untreatable. She married the love of her life, Jack Tweed, in February 2009 but on Mother's Day, 22 March 2009, Jade lost her brave fight to cancer and died at home surrounded by her family. Country of Publication.

Jade's heart-breaking diary of her fight against terminal cancer and her final precious months with her beloved family. In August 2007 Jade Goody received the shattering news that she had cervical cancer. She was only 27 years old. But with her usual strength of character, Jade was determined to beat the disease and carry on with life as normal with her two little boys Bobby and Freddy. Neither the chemotherapy, which left her weak and bald, or the hysterectomy that crushed her dreams of having a little girl, could break Jade's sunny personality or her fierce refusal to be a victim. But in February 2009, Jade received the tragic news that any mother dreads to hear: she was going to be torn from her beloved sons. The cancer had spread and was untreatable. Forever In My Heart is Jade's final 'love letter' to her two little boys. Covering her initial diagnosis while appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in India, their emotional last Christmas as a family, her magical wedding to her partner Jack Tweed and her dying wish to see be christened with her boys, Jade's heart-breaking diary of her final months is set against a backdrop of flashbacks to her difficult early years, her rise to fame in the Big Brother house and those moments of joy and laughter as the nation's darling. It is the powerful story of a young mother's brave fight against a terminal disease, her unique humour, her determination to provide for her sons and her fierce desire to leave a legacy which might prevent other young women being torn from their families in the prime of life. A percentage of profits from the book will be donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

I did not follow the story of Jade Goody until the news of her cancer. I was overwhelmed with compassion for a young mother suffering such horrible agony and who soon would be torn from her children.
I was also revolted and enraged by the heartless and pompous elites who were born to privilege who bullied her mercilessly in her dying months through the media and anonymously through the internet.
This was class hatred in it it's purest form. While Britain's working classes loved Jade, the liberal and leftwing elites could not forgive her the politically incorrect remarks made during her bust up with Shilpa Shetty. The truth is that what she said a reaction to Shetty's own actions of class snobbery and blatant classist remarks about Jade's mum- Shetty comes from an extremely wealthy background, and the same loathsome hypocrites who could not forgive Jade her 'racist' comment in the heat of a fight, ignore the fact that Shetty's father is a feudal industrialist who is a massive exploiter of cheap labour.

But class hatred is the racism of the liberal privileged elites and the white working classes and lumpen-proletariat are one of the only people in the United Kingdom not protected by political correctness and thought fashion.
My favourite British columnist Julie Burchill wrote "WILL it finally stop when Jade Goody stops breathing, do you think?
When she's pronounced dead? When we see her crying children placing flowers on their dead mother's grave?
No. Sad as it seems, sad for the haters, even more than the hated - who will by then be in a place where they can no longer touch her - the rivers of loathing which pour down upon the broken body of this young, naive, defenceless young mother, born into massive poverty and underprivilege, with everything stacked against her, seem unlikely to end with her death".
Unfortunately the soulless callous haters still continued to pour hate on her even after her death.
Many of these people (who are in reality nothing more than cold-blooded villains straight from a Dickens novel) claim to be human rightists but ignored the rights of Jade to live her painful last months without hatred and venom, and deny her sons the right to have a memory of her untainted by the hate speech of the soulless haters.

Jade had a terrible deprived childhood and had to look after herself as both parents were dysfunctional drug addicts and her father had left her when she was two years old. This is partly recounted in this diary.

Ultimately I found this an extremely heart wrenching volume and inspiring how a woman diagnosed with this cruel illness and told by the doctors she would have only a few months to live and though her body was falling apart she lived life to the full until the very last agonizing weeks.
Through the months of her illness she cleaned her own house being a very house proud person, holidayed with her friends , family and her partner Jack.

It was particularly hard to hold back the tears when reading about her wonderful plans for the future only five months before she died, and explaining in her diary how 'it is good to have so much in the pipeline' and 'I'm proud of what I've done but it could be bigger still...I want to sell it all when it's worth loads of money and then retire at thirty-five and enjoy myself. Also hopefully everything will be alright, but if it's not then at least the boys will benefit form all of this".
Most heartrending and painful to read was her reaction to being told by the doctors that the cancer had spread and she only had a few weeks to live, and when she told her little boys that when they saw angels in the sky they would know she was there.
In those weeks she got married, found religion and got christened.
She is a person I admire extremely, a woman with a gem of a soul, a woman of a generous and forgiving nature, and who had and showed more courage than all of her loathsome, pompous, heartless and cruel detractors could ever do, put together.
Buy this book and know that proceeds from it's sale go to the Marie Curie Cancer trust. Ignore the class snobbery and hatefulness of the detractors. This is an inspirational book.

Here's a quick couple of questions for you; when is a racist not a racist? When is a vile, hateful, hate-filled, willfully ignorant person in fact a caring, kind, brave inspiration to the nation?

Answer to both; when that person has cancer.

At least, that's been the story in the UK with televisions biggest ever mistake, Jade Goody. Quick explanation for those lucky enough not to have heard of her - Jade was a contestant on the worst show on television, AKA Big Brother, and became famous for being stupid. Yes, the fact that she was below even average intelligence and talked like a drunken ten year old was, in fact, hilarious and really endearing to the celebrity magazine reading dead-insides.

So she became a big reality star, with TV shows following her around so the drooling retards who watch this sort of thing could find out more about the "real" Jade. It was a few years later, however, on Celebrity Big Brother (she was now a celebrity, you see), where the "real" Jade would really shine.

Because it was this program that made headline, worldwide news (well, in the UK and India, at least) when Goody was at the front of a "race row" involving Indian actress Shilpa Shetty that saw Jade branded evil, vulgar, loathsome - pretty much everything she was. Her career was ruined, her perfume (yes, she actually had her own perfume - can you imagine the bottom feeding scum who bought that?) was removed from the shelves.. she was, in short, the most hated women in Britain. All's right with the world, then. Super.

Fast forward a few months though, and it turns out Jade has cancer. And then cue the biggest media about-turn since they tried to brainwash us into loving Princess Di. Suddenly the same tabloids foaming at the mouth for Jade's blood were now calling her a "princess" (hence my earlier comparison), a brave, proud mother who did the best for her kids etc etc etc. And, I'm sorry, we're all supposed to buy into this?

And yet, the easily manipulated eat/breed/obey masses DID buy into it, and the whole affair, from the non-stop media coverage, the television documentaries, were so crass, so cheap.. it verged on parody. How about selling a commemorative issue of a magazine dedicated to the memory of Jade - when she was still alive? How about the big romantic wedding of Jade and her boyfriend Jack? You know, Jack - the guy who was seen with strippers and other women weeks before the cancer news? Jack, who had to be let out of prison (for threatening to slit a taxi drivers throat) to go to his wedding? How about a news reporter on the BBC - at the funeral - saying "yes, well, the crowds are starting to gather and things are starting to pick up here" like he was attending Glastonbury.

Sniff. It's all like a Jane Austin novel, isn't it? Only this time with fame-hungry cretins, criminals and feral, drug addicted mothers.

That any women, of any background, dies of cancer is, of course, a tragedy for her and her family. What is simply unbelievable about the whole sorry saga was the two-faced nature of not only the press, but the idiots who hoover up every opinion and treat it as cold hard fact. To them, a year ago, Jade was a vile, monstrous bully, even if they didn't watch the show to find out for themselves, the media told them as much and they swallowed every word. And the same thing happened again to these people who simply cannot think for themselves and live in slack-jawed blissful ignorance of the world outside a screaming headline tabloid.

Jade Goody is not a person to be celebrated, and indeed represents the very worst aspects of not only our modern culture but our obsession with meaningless celebrities, people with no talent other than dropping their knickers for footballers and selling the story or, like Jade, being a "character" from a reality show.

It's a dire state of affairs and tawdry, tacky books like this rush-released, ghoulish drivel only make things worse.

I read this book on Jade i did not know who she was at all i never even heard of her until one day i was in a bookstore and seen a magazine with this wedding couple on it so i looked thru it to see a bit. Did not think nothing else about it. The next thing i knew a friend was talking about her so i decided to read one of her books. I decided to read this one. I myself being a author of childrens books and biography's i decided to go on a read her diary. It was absolutley the sadest thing i read. My "father n law" died of a brain tumor and i remember how weak he was from the drugs. But he never had any pain. Thank God for that. He lasted 7 years with his disease but it did cause him to be bed ridden for the last year of his life. When i read at how much pain Jade was in over the years that it was undiagnosed i could not even imagine why the hell the doctors could not dig further until they came to to culprit. Until it was too late. I finished reading her book lastnight and i cryed because all i could think about was her little ones not understanding what happened to there mom. I think that she did a good thing to make women everywhere more aware of the disease. I have not watched her on any shows so i can not be a judge of character. But what ever happened on those shows oh well people need to get a life and not judge others. Anyways this is a very truthful and sad read. And to me i would not be suprised if one day hospice centers use these actual types of books for patients. Just my thought on it. My main concern is her little boys how they will cope not growing up with her being there to watch.
