SARAH HARDING rose to fame and fortune as part of global superstar pop group Girls Aloud.
But tragically she lost her battle with breast cancer on September 5. Here’s what we know about whether she had children.
Did Sarah have children?
Sarah didn’t have any children but always wanted them.
What has Sarah Harding said about kids?
On finding out advanced breast cancer, opened up in her heartbreaking book Hear Me Out.
Sarah said among the “sad thoughts” she’d been having was “the idea that I’ll never have children”.
She wrote: “That one came to me the other day when I was talking to Cheryl on the phone.
“I was saying how we never thought Nadine [Coyle] would be the first one of us to have a child, and that now three of them have kids.
“It might seem odd to worry about not having children when I don’t even know how much of a life I have left, but it’s there.
“The truth is, even if my prognosis was better, it still wouldn’t be on the cards because of all the chemotherapy I’ve had.
“That treatment, harsh as it is, will have killed any chance I might have had. It’s making me cry just thinking about it.”
Sarah announced she had breast cancer in August last year.
She posted a photo of herself from her hospital bed and said she is “fighting as hard as I possibly can” and tweeted: “Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body.
“I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can.”
She revealed that she dismissed a lump on her breast as a cyst during the pandemic in 2020, disguising her “denial” as Covid fear and concern for overrun hospitals.
But it was only when her skin began to bruise that she sought medical help, her organs were already failing and doctors had no choice but to put her in a medically induced coma.
Speaking in her new book Hear Me Out, extracts of which have been shared in The Times, Sarah said: “At first I thought it was just a cyst. The trouble was the pain was getting worse.
“It got so bad that I couldn’t sleep in a bed. Eventually my skin started to bruise. By now I was terrified.
“One day I woke up realising I’d been in denial. Yes there was a pandemic but it was almost as if I’d been using that as an excuse not to face up to the fact that something was very wrong.”
