Adele Kingston 46, bravely fought against breast cancer and brain tumours for more than a decade after first being diagnosed in 2009, but lost her fight to the disease last month.

Now tributes have been paid to the ‘brave, bubbly’ mum of two with ‘a love for life’ with a local charity describing her as a ‘wonder woman.’

A spokesman for the Eve Merton Dreams Trust, which organises special events and treats for terminally ill people, said: It’s with deep regret and a heavy heart, that we need to share the news of a passing within our Evestrust family.

Adele Kingston battled cancer for 12 years.

"Adele Kingston was a force of nature, brave, bubbly, enthusiastic and with a love for life that shone from her whenever you were in her presence.

“As a charity we were lucky enough to meet Adele on the back of a dream request due to the condition Adele had been bravely battling, but she wasn’t happy to end the connection there, as she had the desire to ‘Pay it Forward’. Adele wanted to make others happy, she wanted to know she was a part of making other people smile.

“I can truly say on behalf of all at EvesTrust, we will miss Adele wholeheartedly, and our thoughts are very much with Shaun and the kids during this said time.

“Make no mistake, Adele would want us to go on, and we will, but for now we will honour a truly remarkable lady by continuing to help others.

“We loved you, and we will miss you.”

LH Nails and Beauty wrote on Facebook: “Rest in peace my lovely client and friend Adele Kingston, you always lit up the room with your smile and forever looked glamorous you will be deeply missed, thinking of all the family at such a hard time.”

In 2018, kind-hearted fundraisers raised nearly £10,000 to send Adele, husband Shaun and their two sons Jack and Harvey on the ‘holiday of a lifetime.’

Adele was first told her illness was terminal in 2014 - but she defied the medics, battling on for another seven years, despite being given only a few months to live after being diagnosed with brain tumours.
