Jade Signs Book Deal Detailing Her Last Moments

by | 18 March 2009

Dying reality TV star Jade Goody has signed a book deal detailing her battle with terminal cancer.

The book, titled Forever In My Heart, will be written as a "love letter" to her young sons Bobby and Freddie, publishers HarperCollins have said.

The 27-year-old has been told she may only have days to live after her cervical cancer spread to the rest of her body and doctors declared it had become terminal.

Since the diagnosis Jade has married 21-year-old Jack Tweed and set about trying to raise as much money as possible for her children.

It is reported her book deal will see a substantial sum paid to the Goody estate to care for her sons, while a percentage will also be donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Belinda Budge, the managing director of Harper Non-Fiction said: "This is Jade in her own words.

"It is impossible not to be moved by her heart-warming voice which comes through loud and clear on every page of this last diary.

"This emotional book tells a story of a woman who rose to fame as a controversial reality TV star and has now won admiration in the eyes of many for the fortitude with which she is facing terminal cancer."
