Jades grandfather: Shell keep fighting until there is no fighting left to do
Cancer-stricken Jade Goody’s grandfather has insisted she’s a ‘battler’ and will continue in her fight to beat cervical cancer.
John Caddock said: ‘She’s so brave and she’ll keep fighting until there’s no fighting left to do.
‘The news her cancer has spread has hit us very hard.’
The 70-year-old told The Sun: ‘It’s going to be a tough time for all of us, but we love her with all our hearts.’
John, who is the father of Jade’s mother Jackiey, also said the family were getting ready to ‘rally around’ her two sons, Bobby, five, and Freddy, four.
Jade was left devastated after news that her cancer had spread to her liver, bowel and groin, with doctors telling her they were now fighting to prolong her life, rather than cure her cancer.
But doctors yesterday put her on a two-month course of a new drug called Topotecan, which, Jade says, has given her a ‘glimmer of hope’.
