A mum died days after complaining of a headache, that was actually a symptom of a deadly bleed on the brain caused by undiagnosed leukaemia.
Chris Kelly's wife Kim's death was just days after her 36th birthday and only months after her teenage son suffered a fatal allergic reaction.
His 16-year-old son Nick, in March 2020, after he ate a kebab and suffered a severe allergic reaction, Liverpool Echo reports.
Chris is now determined to raise £50,000 after losing both his partner and son in the space of six months.
The 45-year-old dad explained: “Well to be honest she was very reluctant to go to doctors over anything but it all started off with just a headache.
“She had a headache on Monday and by Tuesday she was okay again. But then on Thursday night, I took her up to the bed and she said ‘I feel like I'm dying.’
“Then Friday morning we woke up and I had to physically dress her, take her downstairs and wait for the ambulance.”
Kim celebrated her 36th birthday on September 7, but she died in hospital less than a week later on September 13.
Chris said that other than the headache that occurred just days before her death, there were ‘no other signs’ of Kim having leukaemia.

He said: “We knew nothing about it, no signs, no nothing. She just went into the hospital with a headache.
“When she was in the ambulance she had two seizures and they did some scans and found out she had a massive bleed on the brain.
“They told me it had popped a day or so before she passed away.”
Previously posting a tribute to the mother of his kids, Chris described her as an angel on Facebook.

Chris said that Kim was 'taken away' too soon, just like his son Nick was, he said: "Can't believe how empty the house feels without you here Kim.
"Miss you shouting down to me to make a brew for you. We are missing you more than words can say.
"It hurts my throat when I cry myself to sleep at night my heart feels so heavy and so empty.
"You were taken away from us way too soon, just like Nick was Kim. God has taken another angel away from us."

Chris is now looking to take part in a charity walk from Prescot to Newquay to raise money for Leukaemia UK.
He said that he loves walking so thought ‘why not' raise some money for a good cause in the meantime.
He added: “I want to raise £50,000 but anything will do, to be honest. I am also hoping people can join me for five, 10 or 15 miles at a time, even if they just walk a small section.”
