That's what a former NHS doctor is saying!
Dr. Ann Coxon has said of Jade Goody's death that it was preventable had the NHS paid attention to the reality star's "glaringly obvious" symptoms. Coxon explains:
"She'd had abnormal smear tests since she was 16 so by the time she was 27 it didn't worry her much, because she didn't really know what it meant. It had never been properly explained to her.
"After she was diagnosed she said to me, in that typically Jade way, 'I'm not daft. If I'd known it was to do with cancer, I'd have been checked out every three months.' Jade realized she had been let down. She simply said, 'Sometimes people make mistakes.'"
Jade Goody died of cervical cancer one year ago today.
