There comes a point at which there is nothing they can do. There's no reason she should receive special care just because she's in the public eye. I respect her for getting money out of this for her sons, but tbh I think she's taking it too far, she's milking it and it slightly sickens me to see her cancer sold for media attention when there are so many who suffer without making huge amounts of money off it.

When cancer has spread through your body LIke Jade's you are doomed. A transplant will not help her now, she wil, die from this disease, I feel for her - though I do not like HER- i just hope she manages to find peace within herself before she expires.

Keomo and radiation is what they gave me.

I agree with Maddy, why is it that in England you have to wait till you are 25 for a test, but in the rest of the UK, ( Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland ) it's 20, we all live in the UK and it should be the same for everyone,

It spread through out her body rapidly theres nothing they can do .

no because it her blood thats infected aswell, it is carrying orgnanism around her body which is spreading the cancer to all her other organs, its an interesting thought though. i dont think its stupid at all

I think it has metastised into several organs now. They have removed one tumour already.

no the drs know what there doing once its spread so far there is no cure

im annoyed at the fact that SHE is so special...if i ever get it i doubt elton john will give me his £1m dollar home for my wedding and after the whole big brother thing ...i dont see how 'sorry' earns you this

No because the cancer is in her bones. You can't transplant bones. Also multiple organ transfusions are not always viable.

It's not just as easy as that though. If only it was.

Pretty sure the doctors looked at all the options before they decided there was nothing they could do. It is there job after all.

There are limits to what surgery can achieve when cancer has spread around the body. Doctors know from experience that when a cancer has spread to so many other areas of the body that it will already be growing in other areas. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used to stop the spread. And if the combination of surgery and these therapies haven't worked then there is little more they can do.

The doctors didn't 'just say it was terminal'.
She was diagnosed with cervical cancer that spread very quickly (metastisised ) throughout her body via blood, lymph and organs and has received the best medical treatment available in Britain today. A prognosis of 'terminal' is the last sentence a doctor wants to tell any young person.
Nothing else can be done that they are not already doing to make her last days as comfortable and pain free as possible.

If cancer is caught early enough, there is always hope that the cancerous cells can be destroyed. Unfortunately once it spreads it can be very difficult to treat. I don't know the full extent of Jade's cancer. Just giving her a liver transplant would get rid of any cancer in the liver, but if it is in her lymph nodes, bones and elsewhere, there is little they can do. If chemotherapy and radiation treatment doesn't work, then nothing can be done to stop it. It is desperately sad when anyone is terminally ill from any disease.

what makes me so angry about all of this is... You are all missing the point! jade may have been saved if she had the cervical screening test that would have detected it alot sooner and may have saved her life! I blame the government for trying to save money by now refusing to screen women under the age of 25, if they had done that when I was younger i would be long dead by now, as it happened to me when i was just 21, so ignore all the advice you are given by the government and pay private to get yourself screened! it will cost you less than a night out on the town and will save your life!
