It's absolutely gut wrenching to see what this is doing to Jade, whether or not you are a fan of hers. Seeing another human so frightened and not
having any kind of skill to help isn't good...
One of the very few postitives to come out of this is the fact that, because her illness has been so high profile, the number of women going for smear
tests in the UK has jumped by 20% in the last few months. Everyone, whether or not they have lost a friend or family member to cancer, particularly
one that is *so easily treated!* in it's early stages, maybe should try to forget their dislike of reality show celebs and all they stand for, and
listen to what this girl really has to say. And she is still a girl, even at 27 with 2 kids, she's painfully open and naive. She has a huge lesson
for all of us, but unfortunately, some illnesses will never be able to be fixed, no matter how many complementary therapies there are out there that
may well work in other cases.
Perhaps there will be a delay, some kind of miracle, even just to give her time. I hope so. I wish her a wonderful wedding, much time and laughter,
and as little pain as possible.
