Jade Goody: 'I'm dying... but happy' says cancer-stricken reality TV star

Jade Goody, the reality television star, has sent a final public message that she is 'happy' despite facing death and wants to be remembered as "the girl who put up a fight".

The mother-of-two, whose cancer of the cervix is spreading through her body, said: "I can look back and be proud of what I've done. I've achieved more in 27 years than some achieve in their lifetime."
The Big Brother star is expected to make a final journey from the hospital where she has been receiving specialist cancer treatment to her home in Essex.

In an interview with OK! magazine she said: "I'm dying ... but I'm happy."

She said she was happy to be remembered as "the mouthy bird off the box" who "irritated and entertained people in equal measure".

However, she added: "I also want to be recalled as the girl who put up a fight and would never let herself get beaten down. I was given a death sentence, but I didn't let it kill me.

"I fought it, got married, got christened, I'm happy. 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." Read more
