As mentioned above, I have had a soft spot for Jade Goody since she appeared on Big Brother. I am really saddened by her misfortune and I have respect for how she decided to deal with it.
Really? You respect her decision to commercialise her cancer and use Max Clifford to the full in the final weeks? I find it terribly sad.
Well that's one way of seeing it. You can call it 'commercialise' or 'raise awareness'. The number of pap smear tests has increased significantly since Jade decided to go public with it. And, I don't think there is anything against making some money along the way.
So, yes respect and compassion: heartfelt.
