Kelly Murray and her sons, Bradley, 10 and Louis 9.

A dying mum’s last wish to smile again and make memories with her sons has been granted thanks to an anonymous £3000 donation.

Kelly Murray’s appeal in last week’s Derbyshire Times led to international media attention, and concerned readers rushed to her aid.

One man, who didn’t want to be named, donated £3000, while another, Brighton dentist Paul Cullen, offered to fit her veneers for free.

Mum-of-two Kelly suffers from a one-in-a-million cancer-like illness, langerhan cell hisiocytosis, that has caused her teeth to fall out. But she said the response has been ‘overwhelming’.

She added: “I couldn’t believe it when I heard this man was going to donate £3000. I just want to thank him, even though I don’t know his name.

“If the dentist will be able to fit my veneers, the money will help give my sons a holiday to remember.”
