Jade Goody “hours” from death and is “terrified of falling asleep”

UK reality star Jade Goody is close to death because of cancer that has spread rapidly.

“It is now a matter of hours, she has deteriorated dramatically overnight. Sadly she is very close to the end,” a friend of Jade’s said, according to the Sun’s News of the World. “One of the problems is she’s terrified of falling asleep because she’s afraid she’ll never wake up. That means she completely exhausts herself. It was terrible.”

Her spokesperson, Max Clifford, confirmed to the newspaper that Jade “has deteriorated. She is very weak. The answer is, who knows? We are on the edge of a precipice.”

Another friend said Jade’s “family were told maybe Jade would make it to Tuesday but after such a bad night that’s been revised to Monday and maybe sooner. She’s in a very bad way and has been in so much awful pain. They’ve given her a lot of medication and she’s been in a deep sleep most of the day and hasn’t woken up. But Jade’s getting weaker and weaker and is looking very pale.”
