Re: Jade Goody dies...

She made use of the media to ensure that her children had money but what about those in similar situations who did not have the media to help out?  The good side of it is that she made young women more aware of how important it is to have smear tests.
She should be left to rest in peace now.

Re: Jade Goody dies...

yes, the one good point to come out of all this is the increase in smear tests being given to women.  Hopefully more lives will be saved as a result.

Very sad indeed
Lets hope this puts more focus onto all types of cancer and finding a cure.

Re: Jade Goody dies...

I'm afraid she wasn't one of my favorite celebs, due to her (in)famous behaviour on BB. However, I must say that, after losing an uncle to cancer in 2006 and after my sisters battle with cervical cancer (which so far she has won *fingers crossed*) and my aunt losing much of her arm to skin cancer, it must be a dreadful thing to have to endure.

Re: Jade Goody dies...

I agree with StickMick, she was never my favorite person, but nobody deserves to die like that so young. Hopefully something really good will continue come out of it all.
Some might however, be in danger of getting into another "Princess Diana" public sympathy outbreak. A St Jade epitaph would not be appropriate.
I wonder how much her "publicist" Max Clifford has gained out of it, and whether his activities will decently cease now...somehow I suspect not. Although to be fair, her very commendable desire to look after her children would probably have come to not much without him.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

In a radio interview Max Clifford said he was not taking a fee for helping raise the money for the children.  Apparently he has worked with her since last April so will have charged for his services up to the recent work.

It is more than likely that Max Clifford did it for free as he has only recently lost his wife to Cancer

Re: Jade Goody dies...

From memory I think he has a place over there.  I guess a lot of his work he can do from anywhere or leave it to his staff.
