Jade Goody may Have 'Less Than 10 Years to Live' After Cancer Diagnosis

Doctors say that Jade Goody's cancer may have already spread and she could have less than 10 years to live.

Doctors have told the former Big Brother star that she must have a hysterectomy and intensive chemotherapy, which will hopefully kill off her cervical cancer.

However, mum-of-two Goody will first have tests to see if it has spread - and if it has she may only have a 50 per cent chance of survival.

"They told me about the worst-case scenario - where I might not even survive 10 years. I'm all over the place. I can't stop crying," the Mirror quoted Goody, as telling a pal.

Goody was devastated by the latest warning, but is determined to fight on - and has vowed to adopt after she has beaten her cancer.

"It was even worse than I was expecting. But I know I have to get through this," Goody told the pal.

"I have now had to give up any hope of having children, but I am already thinking about adopting," she added.
