Sarah Harding has revealed that she was told by doctors that Christmas 2020 will probably be her last as she battles breast cancer.

Former Girls Aloud singer Sarah, 39, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in summer 2020.

Despite undergoing chemotherapy treatment and a mastectomy, after being induced into a coma following her sepsis diagnosis, Sarah’s cancer has now tragically spread to her spine.

In an excerpt from her new book Hear Me Out, published by The Times, Sarah has candidly opened up on her cancer diagnosis.

She wrote: “In December my doctor told me that the upcoming Christmas would probably be my last.

“I don’t want an exact prognosis. I don’t know why anyone would want that.

“Comfort and being as pain-free as possible is what’s important to me now.”

Sarah also added she is focussing on enjoying “every second of my life, however long it might be”.

She explained: “I am having a glass of wine or two during all this, because it helps me relax. I’m sure some people might think that’s not a great idea, but I want to try to enjoy myself.

“I’m at a stage now where I don’t know how many months I have left. Who knows, maybe I’ll surprise everyone, but that’s how I’m looking at things.”

Sarah added that she is “trying to find joy whenever and however I can” and is trying to spend quality time with her mother and seeing her friends “when I can”.

The singer also shared hopes to see all her friends together “one last time” and throw a “great big f**k off party as a way to say thank you and goodbye”.

Sarah is currently considering treatment options for the secondary tumour at the base of her spine.

But, she doesn’t want to have radiotherapy and lose her hair with “with no guarantees at the end of it”.

She added: “It might seem vain thinking about my hair, but my thinking was that if there’s a chance I’ve only got six months, then I’ve got six months.

“Losing my hair probably wasn’t going to change that, so if there’s another way to manage the disease or treat it, then let’s do that.

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

In February, Sarah revealed she had written her book in an Instagram post to thank fans for their support and give them an update.

In the lengthy post, Sarah explained to fans how she had a “quiet Christmas”.

She said: “Mum, the dogs and I had a really lovely but quiet Christmas together, which was very different to my usual, but seemed a fitting way to end such a strange year.”
