What Happened To Dame Deborah James?
The 40 years old was suffering from bowel cancer for more than six years. She shared her illness with the world and raised awareness about it too. On the BBC podcast You, Me and the Big C, James described her challenges. Additionally, she published two books titled How to Live When You Could Be Dead and F*** You Cancer: How to Face the Big C. The latter also appeared on the list of top sellers on Amazon UK.
James was open with her one million Instagram followers about her diagnosis, treatment, and improvement. The mother of two recently stated in a post that she anticipated turning 40 and witnessing her kids graduate from high school. At age 35, the Londoner received a stage four bowel cancer diagnosis in 2016. The big bowel, commonly known as the large intestine, is impacted by cancer, claims Bowel Cancer UK.
According to Cancer Research UK, cancer develops when the body’s cells start to divide out of control. Cancer can spread to other parts of a person’s body, such as the liver or lungs when cells in the large bowel develop malignant properties. This type of bowel cancer is advanced. Bowel cancer symptoms might include changes in bowel habits, weight loss, blood in the stool, weariness, pain in the back or abdomen, and the urge to go to the bathroom even after you’ve already done so, according to Cancer Research UK. May her soul rest in peace!
