“I’m honored and shocked that I was even considered.”

Deborah, known to fans as BowelBabe, heartbreakingly announced Monday that she was transferred to a hospice at home.

She was diagnosed with end-stage colon cancer in 2016, which she openly wrote about in her online Sun column, Things Cancer Made Me Say.

Fans have therefore praised her as “inspirational”, “loving” and “the most beautiful person”.

Deborah said the last four days “seem like a hurricane or a surreal dream when every day I can’t fathom the kindness and generosity.”

And she thanked “the wonderful people in the world” for their unconditional support over the years.

“Small conversations can really save lives, small conversations can make ripples far beyond where we might see them, and seeds could grow where we never see their fruit.”

“Hopefully, with this money, more people will have more time with their loved ones.

“Who knows what crops we might grow, but when we are done hoping, we pray that some will become game changers for our children and many more to come.

“Keep on loving in kindness, always with rebellious hope.”

Hundreds of fans have expressed their love for her, including Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins, 46, Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes, 52, and ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly, 62.
