In August of 2008, at 27 years of age, Jade Goody received the shattering news that she had cervical cancer; but with her usual strength of character, Jade was determined to beat the disease and carry on with life as normal with her two sons. In February 2009, however, Jade received the tragic news that any mother dreads to hear: she would be torn from her beloved sons. The cancer had spread and was untreatable. Fully updated with new material from her family, here is Jade's final "love letter" to her sons. Covering her initial diagnosis while on Celebrity Big Brother in India, their last Christmas as a family, her wedding, and her dying wish to be christened with her boys, Jade's 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 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 humor, her determination to provide for her sons, and her fierce desire to leave a legacy that might prevent other young women being torn from their families in the prime of life.
