Sarah Harding's Girls Aloud bandmates helped write her autobiography after feeling 'helpless' amid cancer battle

SARAH Harding's Girls Aloud bandmates gave her a helping hand to write her autobiography after feeling "helpless" over her devastating cancer diagnosis.

The singer, 39, is releasing a book called Hear Me Out to document her gruelling breast cancer fight.

Kimberley Walsh and the other girls – Cheryl, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts have all been sharing memories to help Sarah with stories to tell.

Talking to Entertainment Daily about how Sarah is doing, Kimberley said:  "She’s amazing actually.

"She’s just managed to write an autobiography. I don’t know how she’s managed to do that but I think she was glad to have something to focus on.

"We haven’t read it but we have been chatting to her a lot about memories just to help her remember stuff.

"With anyone who’s suffering from cancer, that is the one thing you do feel is completely helpless.

"All you can do is literally be there, constantly remind them that you’re there to help with whatever is humanely possible.

"And she knows, she fully knows that, and that’s all that I care about that she knows that she can ask us for anything.”

This week Sarah revealed she has "bad days" throughout her cancer battle.

Sarah, 39, shared on social media: "Hi everyone! I hope you are keeping safe and as well as possible with everything that’s going on.

"I know I’m not really that present on here which I promise I’ll try to get a bit better at, as honestly it means the world to me when I come on and see all your well wishes.

"Thank you for the love and support, on bad days it helps me so much. So here’s a little update from me… Mum, the dogs and I had a really lovely but quiet Christmas together, which was different to my usual, but seemed a fitting way to end such a strange year.

"And since then, in between treatments and hospital visits I’ve managed to finish my book! I can’t believe I’ve actually gone and done it and it’s now at the printers! I’m so excited for it to come out.

"I can’t rewrite history; all I can do is be honest and wear my heart on my sleeve. It’s really the only way I know. I want to show people the real me. Or perhaps remind them. Because, somewhere – amongst the nightclubs, the frocks and hairdos, the big chart hits…

"…and the glamour of being a popstar – the other Sarah Harding got utterly lost. She’s the one who’s been forgotten. And all I want is for you to hear her out.

"I called the book ‘Hear Me Out’ because it’s the title of the song I wrote on the second Girls Aloud album and I’ve always really loved it. The lyrics have always meant a lot to me.

"It’s been lovely revisiting our songs, looking back over photos and writing down memories from my last 39 years. I really hope you might enjoy reading about them too.

"There are some signed ones available too. It’s coming out on March 18 and I can’t wait… argh!!! Sending you all lots of love, S x."

The writing process has helped take Sarah's mind of her cancer battle.
