Former Neighbors actress Kate Keltie was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer at the age of 36

Former Neighbors actress Kate Keltie was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer at the age of 36.

The ex-actor appeared on the Australian soap opera as Holly Valance’s sister Michelle between 1999 and 2004.

Keltie was recently given the alarming diagnosis of stage four cancer and was told it had spread to her blood, hip bones and lymph nodes.

A GoFundMe page has since been set up to raise money to help cover living expenses while Keltie is being treated.

“Our beautiful Kate is going through the unimaginable,” the statement begins on the page.

“This week begins the battle of her life as she begins chemotherapy.

“She will lose her beautiful hair and will not be able to carry children in the future. This is devastating news for anyone, let alone a 36-year-old with no family history of breast cancer,” the statement read.

“Kate will then need chemotherapy fluids every three weeks for the rest of her life, and possibly radiation therapy and surgery.”

The site also explains that working during this time is not an option for Keltie due to the nature of the treatment.

“Like us; you’ll be shocked and wondering what you can do to help. Along with emotional support, one of the best things we can offer is financial help,” it says.

Any money raised will go toward expenses like Keltie’s rent, groceries and bills, as well as a wig, specialty medical supplies and a cleaner.

So far over AUD 31,000 (approx. £17,000) has been raised for the former actress.

Since launching the site, Keltie herself has added a thank you message for the donations.

“I just got over COVID and am starting my first round of chemotherapy tomorrow and you really have no idea how each and every one of you has changed my headspace,” she wrote.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she added.

After appearing in Neighbors Keltie gave up acting for five years until 2004 to become a legal counsel in 2008.
