    There is, but its only effective if you have it before you have sex, which is why they are targetting 12 - 13 year old girls at the moment, in the hope they can stop most of it happening.

    I think the issue here isn't who she is but how she died. Cancer is a terrible disease and the sudden illness and death of this person could have happened to any one of us. Indeed there have been members of this forum, Zoltan for one, who sadly lost their lives because of cancer. That's enough reason to care.

    i was just pointing out that this thread was not meant to be a discussion on whether we liked her or not

    and if you want to make a thread for someone that passes, then you can and no one is stopping you

    and there is no need for that attitude, if you dont like it, dont come in here and read it

    Although his comments are harsh, there is some merit in them. Many people found Jade a bit of sad reflection of today's society; A person celebrated as worthy of celebrity status by society for seemingly no other reason than being a bit dim...

    Yes, her death is sad, but as the original post (which you replied to) tried to imply, does she really merit all the media circus that we've seen during her live, and now at the time of her death. Should we really be celebrating (to such an extend) such an individual over others?

    Many people are aghast at the amount of media time she receives...


    ps: However, if there is something to be learned, it's a reminder that life is fleating, and not to be taken for granted. And I'm wondering if this is what people are truly getting emotional about.

    Aw poor Jade, RIP.
    At least she's saved lives by raising awareness of cervical cancer

    His comments maybe the truest comments ever made on the face of the planet, no, UNIVERSE, but what I'm saying is they don't belong in this thread, it's not respectful at a time like this.

    I've also been closely linked with cancer and seen it first hand, an awful illness.

    I care deeply about Cancer and the hunt for a cure.

    I feel it would be deeply hypocrytical of me to now come out with an "aw, poor Jade" attitude as if I did feel for her, I don't. Harsh but true to me I'm afraid.

    I personally found the whole jade circus extremely disturbing before she was diagnosed never mind the almost freak show afterwards.

    I feel she should have used the media towards raising funds for the cancer cause rather than looking after her familys future that, imo, that was more than secure already.

    When I get back to my girlfriends house later, she as a fellow Cancer sufferer, will be getting an extra hug from me.

    R.I.P. Jade.

    Dying at 27 is a very young age... I hope she does rest in peace, even though some people do not like her media personality, I like the fact she has raised awareness greatly and this could/have saved many lives which may of not been saved.

    Like her or not it is too young an age to die. Hope her kids have a decent life.

    Such a shame that she had almost no choice in raising the profile - a diagnosis live on TV is about as profile raising as you could get.

    Lets hope so.

    If you are not going to be respectful or not 'care', why even enter this thread?
