Deborah James Online Health Update: ‘Nobody knows how long I’ve got’

Podcaster Deborah James has told her followers she doesn’t know “how much longer I have” after being placed at home in a hospice to treat her end-stage colon cancer.

The popular BBC podcast host You, Me And The Big C said the past six months had been “heartbreaking” but she had been surrounded by “so much love” and had “no regrets”.

James was diagnosed with the disease in 2016 and since then has kept her nearly 300,000 Instagram followers up to date with candid posts about her progress and diagnosis about her treatments.

On December 14, 2021, she marked five years since her diagnosis, writing on Instagram, “I am fully aware that I should not be alive today to write this.”

But in a new post Monday, she said: “I never meant to write that message. We’ve tried everything, but my body just won’t cooperate.

“My active care has ended and I have now been placed in a home hospice with my incredible family around me and the focus is on making sure I am not in pain and spending time with them.

“Nobody knows how long I have left, but I can’t walk, I sleep most of the time and most of the things I took for granted are pipe dreams.”

She added that she “left no stone unturned” in her search for treatment, but that even a “magical new breakthrough” wouldn’t make a difference.

Sharing links to charities including Cancer Research UK, Bowel Cancer UK and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, she asked supporters to donate and “buy me a drink to see myself out of this world”.

She added: “Right now for me it’s all about taking it one step at a time, day by day and being thankful for another sunrise.

“My whole family is around me and we will dance through this together, sunbathe and laugh (I will cry!!) at every possible moment!

“You are all amazing, thank you for playing your part in my journey.

“No Regrets. Enjoy Life x Deborah.”
