Inspiring others isn't what she set out to do, but Townsville school teacher Kelly Buttigieg has left a lasting impression on thousands of lives.
Following a diagnosis of stage 4 Gall Bladder Cancer in mid 2016, Kelly created a bucket list and a Facebook page to collate her adventures.
On the page she wrote:
"Well there's nothing like stage 4 gall bladder cancer to make you start your bucket list. Follow my journey through life and living the best I can."
Kelly set the bar high and managed to accomplish the majority of her bucket list. Throughout 2016 she ticked off:
Paronella Park ✔
Paddle boat in Murray River ✔
Australian Outback Spectacular - Gold Coast, Australia ✔
Trip to Tasmania ✔
Whale watching ✔ Townsville Whale Watching
Sing on stage solo✔
And many more!
Kelly's achievements and cancer ups and downs were followed by thousands.
Sad news broke recently that Kelly lost her cancer battle.
A post appeared on the page on Saturday, that broke the hearts of all who had the pleasure of knowing Kelly.
Our thoughts are with her family.
