R.I.P. Jade Goody

1981- 2009

Text ColorThe Daily Mail in the UK is reporting that Jade Goody lost her battle with cancer early this morning at her home in Upshire, Essex. She is not very well known here in the US but is infamous overseas for her behaviour on the Big Brother reality show, which she won. On the celebrity version of the same show she made racist comment about her co-star Shilpa Shetty who is from India, apologized and then went on the Indian version of the show which she had to leave after being diagnosed with advanced stage cervical cancer. She has spent the last few months filmimg her ordeal for British television to raise awareness for cancer victims and to earn money for her children's future after she is gone. To make things even sadder, today is Mother's Day in England.
