Deborah James 'wants to die listening' to her family after their 'last days together'
Deborah James has revealed that she wants to 'die listening to her family' around her after their 'last days together'.
The 40-year-old star has told that hospice has advised her that she could have 'weeks at most', left with her beautiful family.
Deborah has vowed to relax and spend time with her family, her parents, husband Sebastien and her two children, Hugo and Eloise for their 'last days together'.
The proud mum-of-two is determined to pass away with the sounds of her beloved family in her ears - and the 'normal buzz of life' as she passes on.
"I want to die listening to my family, I just want to hear their banter and the normal buzz of life as I go", the brave star told The Times.
"My priority is that I spend time with my family, we are all together, I'm at my parents, it's always where I supposed I wanted to die.
"My husband, my kids are around. My parents, my brother, and my sister.
"We've been having sleepovers, we've been doing loads of talking - well I've been listening, lying on the sofa, I've been doing a lot of sleeping", she added.
On Monday, BBC presenter Deborah shared a heartbreaking health update, confirming that she is now in hospice care and is spending her time surrounded by her family and friends.
The brave star, who has battled stage 4 bowel cancer for almost five years, took to Twitter to share the devastating update with her beloved fans and followers.
The mum-of-two said that although she has been fighting her illness for five years, it's not easy to accept.
The much-loved BBC star penned: "The tweet I never wanted to write. The time has come to say goodbye.
"It has been 5 years to prepare, doesn’t make it any easy.
"I’m under hospice at home care, & I’m spending my time surrounded by my family. Please buy me a wine to see me out and raise vital funds."
Brave Deborah, who has documented her cancer journey on social media under the name 'bowel babe' has seen her BowelBabe Fund hit a staggering £3 million after she revealed her last wishes this week.
Deborah urged people to donate to the fundraiser - at bowelbabe.org - as she revealed she had been moved to hospice care at home following her five year battle with cancer.
Her fundraiser skyrocketed to a whopping £250,000 shortly after going live.
And it has now reached over a staggering £3million in just four days.
Deborah has said that she's 'blown away' by the generosity of people as she continues to fight her illness.
"I’m just blown away, I never thought we’d get to that number in 12 hours," she said after the £250,000 was raised.
“It makes me emotional to see the outpouring of love," she added to The Sun.
The Bowelbabe Fund for Cancer Research UK is Deborah’s final endeavour of many to support research into bowel cancer.
The fundraiser website reads: “All money raised will be allocated, with the support of CRUK [Cancer Research UK] to funding causes and projects that I really care about,”
