Deborah James fighting cancer: Not really knowing what the future holds

Deborah James has shown that she is a great warrior because she has been fighting bowel cancer for a long time. Although her illness is in its final stages, James does not give up and believes she can beat the illness. Of course, sometimes there are those 'bad' days when you think negatively, but the important thing is that the fight never stops.

In one of the shows, James revealed what the symptoms of her illness were, and how she discovered her illness. She believes that this disease should not be a taboo topic and that it should be talked about as much as possible.


"I started going to poo - we need to say that - eight times a day. And I used to be a once-a-day kind of girl. "Then I started getting really tired and I remember drinking loads of cups of coffee just to try and keep myself awake.


"Then I started losing loads of weight and I started having blood in my poo." - James told OK.

Doctor and prognosis

Although her doctors predicted that she would not live long, James beat their prognosis and we hope that in the end she will succeed and beat this disease.

"I find myself living in limbo land, not really knowing what the future holds and for how long. "It’s a very stressful uncertain place to be because when I was discharge from hospital over a month ago I was given days, maybe a week to live.

And I felt like it. "But as we all know life doesn’t go according to plan, so I’m just grateful for what ever extra time, the powers that be have decided to grant me. So despite the unnerving tears, I look at the sunshine, smile, and think, wow, life is a funny thing isn’t it!! Better enjoy it!"
