Jade Goody asked mum to smother her in final days
Tragic Jade Goody asked her mum to smother her with a pillow in the final days of her battle against cervical cancer – and Jackiey Budden says she considered it.
Grieving Jackiey told how Jade begged her to help end her excruciating pain, by smothering her with a pillow in the countdown to her death.
Jackiey admitted she seriously considered it – but knew that Jade’s new husband, Jack Tweed, would have disapproved.
The 50-year-old told OK! magazine: ‘She did [ask me to help her die]. I thought, “I don’t want to have to put a pillow over her head and suffocate her without anyone knowing.”
‘If she was on a machine, we’d have to turn it off, but when you’ve got cancer you don’t have a machine.
‘She wanted me to put a pillow over head. I really didn’t want to see her go that way.’
Jackiey was by her daughter’s side, along with Jack and close friend Kevin Adams, when Jade died peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of Mother’s Day.
