Jade Goody fights to see final Mother’s Day (Lead)March 21st, 2009 - 7:47 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 21 (IANS) Cancer-stricken British reality TV star Jade Goody is hoping to hold on to see her sons for the last time on Mother’s Day Sunday.
The terminally ill star’s family thinks she might rally enough for a final visit from Bobby, 5, and Freddy, 4. Mother’s day falls on March 22.
“Nobody wants the boys to see Jade (Goody) suffering. She is asleep and heavily sedated most of the time. If she has a period of consciousness over the weekend, they are hoping the boys will be able to come and see her for Mother’s Day,” said a friend of Goody.
Meanwhile, the wish of Goody to be buried in a flower-filled churchyard after her death has been dashed due to lack of space in the cemetery.
The “Big Brother” star requested a plot at St.John The Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. But it has now emerged that the graveyard is already full, reports ananova.com.
“Unfortunately St.John’s is full, so she cannot be buried there. All the parties will be trying to arrange (a place) close by,” said Goody’s publicist Max Clifford.
Her husband Jack Tweed’s family has an emotional connection with the church, which is closest to the couple’s home in Buckhurst Hill.
Goody, diagnosed with cervical cancer last year, discharged herself from hospital last week to spend her last days at home.
