Jackie Collins wanted people to see her as source of strength

London, Sept. 24 : Jackie Collins, who recently died of breast cancer, opened up about her battle with breast cancer on her last interview.

In an interview, the ‘Santangelos’ novelist said that she wanted the people to see her as a source of strength , as she battled with breast cancer for six years, the Daily Express reports.

The novelist added that “I have a chronic disease. We’re all going to go at some time. I want people to see me as an example of strength – and doing things my way.”

Earlier this week, the novelist’ sister Joan Collins took to her Twitter page to pay tribute to her and wrote, “”Desperately sad today but I know Jackie would want me to be strong, adding that but it’s hard to lose somebody so wonderful, so incredible and loving.”

Collins passes away on September 19, 2015, after her six-year battle with breast cancer. (ANI)
