44-Year-Old Danniella Westbrook Reveals she's Fighting Cancer of the Womb, Says She's Afraid she Might Die Soon

Danniella Westbrook has revealed that she has been battling cancer of the womb and say she was initially afraid she would die and so turned to drugs to help her cope with her cancer diagnosis. 

Her friend and Big Brother star Jade Goody died at the age of 27 in 2009 after battling cervical cancer. 

The EastEnders actress said she collapsed in pain while in the UK and was taken to hospital by Kerry Katona, and it was when she flew to Spain that she had the devastating news. 

She admits she turned to cocaine at first because she wanted to ‘numb everything and get drunk’, but now she is focused on fighting the disease. 

‘After what happened with Jade I was frightened to talk to anyone about my cancer at first. She was my friend and what happened was so awful,’ she told The Mirror. 

‘I’ve tried to commit suicide before but getting this diagnosis has made me realise I don’t want to die. ‘I want to live and sort out my health. I know I have to fight, I know I have to get up and battle it.’

However Danniella says she’s ‘hopeful’ for the future as doctors have said they believe the cancer is ‘containable’. 

She will undergo a full hysterectomy in three weeks’ time.
