London, Mar 1 (ANI): Cancer-stricken Jade Goody is desperately trying to bring forward the Christening of her two sons because she fears she won't live long enough to see the planned ceremony next Saturday.
The former Big Brother star wanted her boys - Bobby, five, and four-year-old Freddie - christened in a local church before throwing a giant kids' party.
However, she is now keen to rush it forward and would settle for the ceremony to be held at her bedside as early as possible.
"The courage Jade is showing really beggars belief," the Mirror quoted a friend, as saying.
"She's been in utter pain and at times is extremely anxious - yet she's being typically selfless and can only think about what's right for her boys," the friend added.
The christening itself, which will follow a traditional Church of England ceremony, is expected to be carried out by Bishop Jonathan Blake, who blessed Jade and husband Jack Tweed's wedding.
"The christening can happen anywhere, inside or outside, there are no restrictions. It can even be carried out in the hospice, if that's where Jade wants it. It would not matter one iota if she is bedridden," the bishop said.
"The family have asked me to keep quiet about the ceremony they want and I must respect their privacy. She knows I am there for her when she needs me," he added. (ANI)
