Deborah James reveals plans for her final days

Dame Deborah James has admitted that many of her days were “not good” as she received hospice care.

BBC podcaster, 40, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2016, updated her followers as she neared the end of her life.

On Tuesday, she took to her Instagram to post a snap of herself with her family wearing matching charity t-shirts after she founded Bowelbabe Foundation recently to raise money and awareness.

She urged her followers to buy the limited edition tees but wrote with the image: “I love makeup! I felt great in this image.

“Not a good day, as many people are not at the moment. But it’s amazing how the picture doesn’t say another 10000 words! ”

“For reference, I’ve spent my day telling people to stay away,” she added with a smiley face emoji.

Deborah – known as ‘Bowel Babe’ – has been a prominent advocate of cancer awareness for many years, including through the You, Me and the Big C podcast.

She gave an update on her own condition earlier this month, announcing that she was in hospice care at home because her body “couldn’t take it any longer.”

The campaigner and podcast host said in a statement: “My intensive care service has been discontinued and I am now moved into hospice care at home, with my incredible family. me around me.”

Deborah added: “Right now for me, it’s all about taking it one day at a time, one step at a time, and being grateful for another dawn.” She thanked the fans for their continued support.

It was in that post that she announced the launch of the Bowelbabe Foundation, in partnership with Cancer Research UK. The fund has raised more than £6 million.

In recent weeks, she has also confirmed that her new book, How to Live When You Might Die, will be released in August and has received the Damehood Award for her campaign.
