“I drink a glass or two of wine because it helps me relax. I’m sure some people think it’s a bad idea, but I want to try and have fun. I’m at a point where I don’t know how many months I have left. Who knows, maybe I would surprise everyone? “Says Sarah Harding, who now intends to spend time with her friends and family and plans to organize” a big party to say thank you and goodbye “.
Send a prevention message
The singer wants, through her testimony, to convey a message of prevention in order to encourage people to consult in case of doubt about their state of health. She says she initially thought she had “just a cyst”. With confinement, she delayed medical treatment. “But [the confinement and the pandemic] were like some kind of pretext to refuse to see that something was wrong,” she concedes.
Sarah Harding was from 2002 to 2013 one of the five members of Girls Aloud, a girl band created as part of the British version of Popstars. Very popular across the Channel, each of his five albums was crowned at least platinum.
