March 4, 2011

Sky Living HD will mark the second anniversary of reality star Jade Goody’s death with Jade Changed My Life.

The one-hour documentary, produced by ITV Studios, will celebrate Goody’s legacy from the point of view of family and friends and those she helped save by raising awareness of cervical cancer.

The documentary will air on March 22, the second anniversary of her death.

Jade Changed My Life includes interviews with her widow, her doctor, as well as women who got themselves tested for cervical cancer after hearing about Goody’s illness.

Siobhan Mulholland, commissioning editor, factual and features, Sky Entertainment, commented in a release, “Jade’s illness did more for the awareness of cervical cancer in the UK than any other event or person had been able to achieve previously. It highlighted how vulnerable women of all ages are to the disease.  Sky Living has a long relationship with Jade, and what better way to honour her memory than to celebrate how she has, and still continues, to touch people’s lives.”
