A mother-of-three died just nine days after being diagnosed with an aggressive cancer initially thought to be kidney stones.

Doctors diagnosed her with stage four metastatic melanoma after finding cancer in her lungs, chest and spine before it quickly spread to her brain and bones.

Her partner AJ was left without a husband and their three children Sienna, 7, and twins Fletcher and Scarlett, 5, motherless when Kelly died on December 15.
A close family friend, Russell Spear, said Mrs Kelly had fought the cancer as well as she could and had been in treatment for four days before she died.
“It gave them time to fight this thing, but unfortunately the cancer was too bad and her body couldn’t handle it,” he said Yahoo News.
Mr. Spear started a GoFundMe to help raise money for the devastated family.
“Words cannot describe the impact of losing such an amazing woman,” he wrote.
“Grief is not a strong enough word for what we feel, but we mourn the loss of a daughter, wife, mother and friend, and for these three little children who will now only have their mother in their memories, hearts and when they see the stars of the sky.
Mr Spear said the money would ease the financial burden on the family so they could grieve the loss of their loved one.
“Liz didn’t even get a chance to fight this, so we’re asking our friends to help AJ and the kids fight whatever comes next,” he wrote.

“To get through this extremely difficult time without financial stress.”
“Allowing AJ, Sienna, Fletcher and Scarlett to focus on their grief and healing as a family.”
Mr Spear said the family were “reluctant” to ask for help and he had taken it upon himself to help raise the money.
“Let’s support and give our friend and his 3 cheeky kids the chance to take care of each other after the most unfair and heartbreaking events,” he wrote.
“All funds raised will go directly to AJ as he supports his family through this harrowing next chapter.”
