Although the drug it is still being tested in the UK, it has been cleared as a 'last ditch' attempt to help patients for whom conventional treatments have failed.
The Sun newspaper reports that the 27-year-old has started a two-month course of treatment after her cervical cancer was found to have spread to her liver, bowel and groin.
Miss Goody told the paper: 'I am devastated. I am frightened and I am angry. I don't want to die because I have so much to live for. The reality is I have gone from a 40% chance of a cure to seeing how long I can stay alive.'
She has reportedly been told by doctors that they are hoping that Topotecan will prolong her life rather than cure the disease.
