Story

Kelly is a young mother, age 34, of beautiful 4 year old daughter Lilly-Rose. Kelly is battling stage 4 skin cancer which has spread to her liver and brain. With your donations we hope to raise enough money to send Kelly abroad for specialized treatments that are not available in the UK. Any additional money will go towards sending Kelly and Lilly to Disney Land Orlando this Christmas. This trip is not just an amazing trip for young Lilly, but also an opportunity to make life-long memories for Lilly with her mother, should anything happen to Kelly. It is also important for Kelly to have something to look forward to and keep her strong and fighting. Any additional money raised will go towards a future for Lilly and general financial support for them whilst Kelly cannot work.

Kelly was first diagnosed with melanoma in 2012. After surgery she was luckily in remission for 4.5 years, in which time she gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Lilly-Rose. During a family holiday to Mexico, Lilly’s first holiday, Kelly broke her arm only to find that the cause of the break was stage 4 cancer. The cancer is not responding to treatment and has now spread throughout her whole body. Kelly is struggling to raise her 4 year old daughter as she is in constant pain, and regularly undergoing treatments. She is in and out of hospital regularly and depending upon her family for support with care for Lilly. On top of the physical difficulties of looking after her daughter, Kelly is also struggling financially as she is unable to work due to the severity of her illness.

Kelly is on the final form of treatment available for her cancer in the UK. She has tried every option possible and none have worked. Furthermore, the treatment she is currently on is not even attempting to cure her cancer, just to prolong her life. With the options in the UK exhausted and extensive research carried out, it seems the only option is to head abroad for alternative and new forms of treatment.
