A mum with a grade four brain tumour is on a mission to raise money for the charity that has supported her since her diagnosis.
Kelly Marie Casey, 32, was told she had cancer in July last year and is currently going through chemotherapy.
But that hasn’t stopped her fundraising for Brain Tumour Research as she tries to raise awareness of the killer condition.
Over three days this week she has managed to raise £1,140.82.
First up was an easter event at St Mary’s School, Springfield, where her sons Aidan, 11, and Kian five, go, which raised £273.88. Another £165 was collected at Linden Children’s Centre, Rectory Road, Stoke Newington.

And yesterday, at Ickburgh School, Kenworthy Road, Homerton, where she works as a special needs assistant, friends and colleagues turned out to raise £700.97.
“It went really well,” said Kelly. “It was amazing. It’s so great to raise awareness – some cancers get a lot of publicity but brain tumour doesn’t get enough. It’s really important for their research
