Sarah Harding, 39, has shared some heartbreaking news she received from her doctor following her breast cancer diagnosis last summer. The Girls Aloud singer was told that Christmas 2020 was probably her last due to the aggressive nature of her disease.

Sarah underwent a mastectomy and intensive chemotherapy to battle the cancer, but it has now spread to her spine.

Opening up about the situation in her new book Hear Me Out, she explains: “In December my doctor told me that the upcoming Christmas would probably be my last.”

She goes on to add in extracts of her book which have been shared in The Times: “I’m at a stage now where I don’t know how many months I have left.”

Sarah is currently thinking about treatment options for a secondary tumour at the base of her spine, that may have grown into her brain.

The star also admitted she is reluctant to undergo radiotherapy as this would cause her to lose her hair.

Sarah argues that although some may consider her decision “vain”, if she only has a few months left to live, it won’t be worth it to lose her hair.

The television personality was left devastated when she lost her breast, so is keen to hold onto her blonde hair.

She penned: “I don’t want to feel like I have to spend whatever time I have left hiding away.”

 

Sarah went on to divulge that she is trying to make the most of the time she has and doesn’t want an exact prognosis.

She said: “I’m trying to live and enjoy every second of my life, however long it might be.”

Sarah is being looked after by her mum, who she enjoys cooking roast dinners with at home.

The star also hopes to be able to have a final party with her friends.

She adds in the book: “I think what I’d really like to do is to see everyone – all my friends, all together. 

“One last time… a way to say thank you and goodbye.”

The singer also revealed she was placed in a coma for two weeks while she battled sepsis in hospital following her diagnosis.

Sarah explained she had initially believed her pain was due to a cyst and avoided going to the doctors to get it checked due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The former Big Brother star recalled she was then rushed to hospital before her chemotherapy treatment had even started after a port fitted into her chest led her to develop sepsis.

She began chemo and had a mastectomy after she came out of her coma.

Sarah opened up about her cancer battle for the first time last August.

She informed her fans that she had advanced cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body.

Hear Me Out by Sarah Harding is published by Ebury on Thursday.
