Neighbours is an Australian drama that has been running since 1985.
The 36-year-old star Katie Keltie performed as Michelle Scully, the younger sister of Holly Valance’s character Felicity on the Australian soap opera Neighbours for five years (1999-2004).
Then she left acting to pursue a career in law.
She has already started treatment, but her cancer has spread to other body parts. A “Go Fund Me” page has been created to facilitate her.
Ebony Gilbert, the campaign organizer, says: “Our lovely Kate is going through the inconceivable.”
Her doctors recently [web_stories title=”true” excerpt=”false” author=”true” date=”true” archive_link=”true” archive_link_label=”” circle_size=”150″ sharp_corners=”true” image_alignment=”left” number_of_columns=”1″ number_of_stories=”4″ order=”DESC” orderby=”post_title” view=”carousel” /].
Her cancer is highly destructive, and it has extended to other parts of her body, including her lymph bumps, blood, and hip bones (known as metastatic cancer illness).
This upcoming week, the bravest challenges of her life began as the star began chemotherapy.
Dozens of participants have already donated thousands of dollars to the cause. The fundraiser page has already surpassed investments of $30,000 (£17,000).
Given the severity of Kate’s chemotherapy, her Oncologist advised against working and maintaining her career.
“She will lose her gorgeous-looking hair and will not be able to carry kids in the future.”
At this age, without a family history of breast cancer, discovering you have one is devastating news.
Kate will need chemo infusions every three weeks, possibly radiotherapy and surgery, for the rest of her life.
Why is this Fundraiser Campaign Significant?
Being incapable of working and making an income during this period has been difficult.
By contributing together, we can cover some of the living expenses and let Kate focus on her health problems.
The fundraiser campaign will help Keltie pay household bills during her treatment and medical appointments for specialized medical products, a wig, and makeup products.
On top of emotional backing, financial aid is one of the best things we can offer.
Kate Keltie’s Response to the Donators
Keltie herself replied to the fundraiser invitation, writing: “Hi everyone. I am deeply sorry I haven’t had a chance to talk to you but hang in there! I’ll get there!”
She posted a heartfelt message to her followers: “It is so exciting to know how incredible people are in my corner.”
“I’m almost finished with the treatment of COVID, and I look forward to starting my first round of chemotherapy tomorrow. I’ve absolutely no idea how I’ll feel going into this treatment because of all of you. Thanks from the depth of my heart.”
Keltie also appeared in the shows “Thunderstone” and the Australian crime drama “Blue Heelers.”
She retired in 2008 as a performer and pursued a career in recruiting before working as a lawyer.
