That Jade Goody is a trooper! Not only has she been dealing with the fact that she has cervical cancer, but she is now planning a possible funeral.
The mother of two was told that she had cancer when she was about to appear in an Indian version of the British reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother. Ever since then, poor Jade Goody has been trying to come to terms with the fact that she might not live. Doctors have said that it’s a 50/50 chance she’ll live to Christmas.
A very brave Jade has now started planning her funeral in preparation to this. She spoke to OK! magazine and told them “Most peopleplan their weddings. But I’m planning my funeral”.
“Some people say they don’t want people crying, but I want people to cry over me. And I don’t want anyone to have a booze up when I’m dead. They should have a cup of tea and be crying. I’d want to have an open funeral and let everyone who wanted to come along,” she added.
“I’ve never been a God person, but now I pray every time I go to bed and say stuff like, ‘Let me see my children grow’,” she said.
Goody joked that she might have her funeral wreath shaped as a Marmite jar – because she is either loved or hated.
Well Jade, we love you and we wish you all the best.
