London, Feb 4 (IANS) Reality show star Jade Goody was devastated after the doctors told her that her cancer has spread and said “I am in a nightmare.” reports that “The Big Brother” star had longed for good news after numerous bouts of chemotherapy. But the doctors Tuesday told her that the tumours had been found in her liver, bowel and groin.

“I don’t want to die. I am devastated. I am frightened and I am angry. I don’t want to die because I have so much to live for.”

The doctors scrapped their previous diagnosis that she had a 40 percent chance of survival and began treating the mother of two to prolong her life as long as possible rather than pursue a cure.

Goody says she is hoping for a miracle.

“The reality is I have gone from a 40 percent chance of a cure to seeing how long I can stay alive. The whole thing is absolutely terrifying. To try and remain positive, I am hoping a new type of treatment will suppress and control the cancer, which is very aggressive. I am in a nightmare,” said Goody.

Jade, first diagnosed with cervical cancer last August, was admitted to London’s Royal Marsden Hospital in agonising pain last Friday.
