Goody signs book deal detailing her last momentsMarch 19th, 2009 - 1:18 am ICT by IANS
London, March 18 (IANS) Reality TV star Jade Goody, whose condition is said to be deteriorating rapidly, has signed a book deal detailing her battle with terminal cancer.
The book, titled ‘Forever In My Heart’, will be written as a “letter” to her young sons Bobby and Freddie, reported contactmusic.com
The 27-year-old’s condition has worsened after her cervical cancer spread to the rest of her body and doctors declared it terminal.
Since the diagnosis Jade has married 21-year-old Jack Tweed and set about trying to raise as much money as possible for her children.
It is reported her book deal will see a substantial sum paid to the Goody estate to care for her sons, while a percentage will also be donated to the Marie Curie Cancer Care.
“This is Jade in her own words. It is impossible not to be moved by her heart-warming voice which comes through loud and clear on every page of this last diary,” said Belinda Budge, the managing director of publishers HarperCollins.
“This emotional book tells the story of a woman who rose to fame as a controversial reality TV star and has now won admiration in the eyes of many for the fortitude with which she is facing terminal cancer,” she added.
