London, Jan 12 (IANS) British reality TV star Jade Goody, who is suffering from cervical cancer, has revealed that her survival chances have dropped from 50 to 40 percent.Dailymail.co.uk reports Goody, 27, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer last summer, said she was realistic about her chances but vowed not to let the disease beat her.
“I’ve been hanging on to life with my fingernails but I will not let go. Throughout my life I have had to cope with some really bad stuff but I have always turned out stronger than the thing trying to beat me. And with cancer it will be the same,” she said.
She added: “Some times I think ‘I wonder how much time I’ve really got?’ But right now there is no answer to that.”
Goody had surgery to remove a rugby ball-sized tumour as well as her womb and ovaries but she said the most difficult part was losing all her hair after intensive chemotherapy.
