Sarah Harding’s cancer treatment center is planned research that will be partially sponsored by money raised by the Girls Aloud star, who died on Sunday.
In March, Harding released the song Wear It Like A Crown to raise money for Manchester’s Christie Hospital.
The Christie has now announced that it will support research into preventing breast cancer in women aged 30-39 who have no family history of the disease.
Harding died at the age of 39, a year after being diagnosed with cancer.
A crowdfunding drive for the research has also been launched by Christie.
The hospital said in a statement that Sarah was “very passionate about breast cancer research and spoke often of the need of funding this.”
Marie, the singer’s mother, shared the news of her “wonderful” daughter’s death on Instagram, calling her “a bright, sparkling light.”
The artist hailed The Christie’s “wonderful” doctors, nurses, and staff, describing them as “real angels.”
“The Christie is doing everything it can to create a world free of cancer,” she stated in June, “but funding research is the only way to achieve.”
- Tributes are being led by Cheryl and her Girls Aloud bandmates.
- Sarah Harding’s contribution to the evolution of pop music
- A pop sensation who is unstoppable and adored by all.
The study will be led by Dr. Sacha Howell, who treated the singer. His research will focus on the risk factors and prediction rates for breast cancer among women in their 30s who have no family history of the disease.
“By examining these indicators, it is envisaged that women who do not normally fall into the at-risk category can be targeted using more accurate prediction models and early screening programs to give improved outcomes,” a spokeswoman said.
The Christie has not announced how much Harding raised or the research’s overall funding goal.
Treatment was postponed.
Harding said in her autobiography about putting off seeking medical help after she first saw lumps beneath her arm in December 2019.
After seeing a doctor, she was recommended to schedule an MRI scan, but “coronavirus hit and everything either turned into slow motion or stopped altogether,” she wrote.
“I knew I needed to address this health issue, but with everything else going on, it was difficult.”
Girls Aloud are the best-selling female group of the 21st century in the U.k., having sold 4.3 million singles and four million albums. Between 2002 and 2012, they had 21 UK top ten singles, including four number ones.
Harding has also acted in Coronation Street, BBC drama Freefall, and the film St Trinian’s 2. In 2017, he won Celebrity Big Brother.
How can you tell if you have breast cancer?
A lump or thickening in the breast is the most prevalent indicator of breast cancer, but there are other symptoms as well.
They are as follows:
- Changes in breast size or texture
- Dimpling or redness in the breast skin are signs of a problem.
- Outside of pregnancy or breast-feeding, fluid flowing from the nipple
- The nipple’s position changes.
Other illnesses might produce these symptoms, so any lumps or changes should be checked out by a doctor.
Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in the United Kingdom, with women over the age of 50 having a higher risk than those under the age of 40.
However, numerous other variables, like family history and being overweight, can enhance a person’s risk.
Breast cancer has a wide range of treatments, and if caught early enough, the prognosis is generally favorable.
