Brit celebrity Jade Goody fears that she may never get a glimpse of her two young sons, Bobby, five, and Freddie, four, again as cancer takes away her sight.
Goody, 27, has been fighting to be allowed to go home from hospital so that she can spend her remaining time with her boys, but her pals have revealed that her condition is so bad that she can barely see, with just one eye working.

"She's desperate to be close to her sons in her final hours and hates them seeing her in hospital.
"She wants to go home and be surrounded by family and friends, not in a hospital bed. Everyone's concentrating on getting the nurses prepared so that she can face the pain at home," the friend added.
The Big Brother star's sight has been deteriorating rapidly ever since she and her sons were christened in an emotional hospital service on March 7, when she was still able to recognise relatives and friends.
