Girls Aloud icon Sarah Harding was dealt a shattering blow last year, when she revealed that she was suffering from breast cancer. The 39-year-old later confirmed that the disease had spread to her brain and lungs.

I’ve put her in touch with what I call ‘a miracle worker’, who helps people with alternative therapies.

The Wear It Like A Crown singer announced her devastating diagnosis in August 2020, after being spotted at a hospital.

Since her diagnosis, Sarah has undergone weekly chemotherapy sessions in a bid to tackle the disease.

The star, who shot to fame in 2002 as one-fifth of girl band Girls Aloud, has continually updated her fans on her condition.

Following her harrowing diagnosis, Sarah’s former bandmates and friends soon rallied around her.

Speaking to OK! Magazine last month, singer Duncan James, 43, revealed that he instantly reached out to the former Coronation Street actress.

“I’m really good friends with Sarah, when I heard about her cancer, I reached out to her straight away.

“I’ve put her in touch with what I call ‘a miracle worker’, who helps people with alternative therapies.”

Duncan continued: “I said, ‘Sarah, speak to this person, he’s amazing!'”

The cabaret star went on to say: “I really wanted Sarah to get as much help as possible.

“I was so sad to hear about her being diagnosed with cancer and I hope she’s going to be OK.”

Duncan added that Sarah was “blown away” with the support she had received following the release of her second solo single, Wear It Like A Crown and her autobiography, Hear Me Out.

Ahead of the release of her book, Sarah’s fan club, the Sarah Harding Addicts, who also wrote an extract for her autobiography, launched a fan campaign to get Hear Me Out, a track from the 2004 Girls Aloud album, What Will The Neighbours Say? onto the iTunes chart.

The track hit the top spot, giving Girls Aloud their first number one in 13 years.

Sharing some good news, Sarah penned in her autobiography: “Before I put this book to bed, I wanted to share a little bit of positive news.

“MRI scans at the end of December revealed that the tumours in my brain and in my lung have shrunk a bit with the treatment.”

The singer went on to write: “I don’t know exactly what this means for me, but at least I know it’s moving in the right direction, and right now, every little victory feels momentous.

“With this news under my belt, I was able to enjoy a relaxing quiet Christmas with mum and yes, I got plenty of lovely Christmas pressies.”

Sarah, who relocated from Berkshire to be closer to her mum in Manchester, added: “At the moment, I’m just grateful to wake up every day and live my best life because now I know just how precious it is.”

The singer refused to find out her prognosis and instead is trying to “live and enjoy every second” of her life, “however long it may be”.

Despite doctors previously telling Sarah that Christmas 2020 may have been her last, she said: “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.”
