Tragic Sarah Harding felt “strangely comforted” that she would “leave this world” before her mum.
The Girls Aloud pop superstar died yesterday (Sunday, September 5) aged just 39 after battling metastasised breast cancer.
Sarah Harding’s admission about dying before her mum
Earlier this year, Sarah released an autobiography called Hear Me Out.
The book chronicled her life in Girls Aloud, her reaction to her devastating diagnoses as well as living with cancer.
She also wrote movingly about the relationship she shares with mum Marie.
“In a strange way it’s comforting to know that I will probably leave this world before she does; at least then I won’t have to go through the pain of losing her.
“The truth is, I can’t live without her now, she cares for me and helps me because, at times, I am too weak to help myself.”
Girls Aloud reunion for Sarah Harding
Sarah also speaks candidly about reuniting with her Girls Aloud pals Cheryl, Nicole Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh.
However, despite the reunion, in August 2020 Sarah revealed that she had been diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and that it had spread to other parts of her body.
In the book she said: “I’m just grateful to wake up every day and live my best life because now I know just how precious it is… nothing is certain anymore.”
