Heartfelt tributes have been paid to a “remarkable” young mum who showed strength and resilience throughout her battle with cancer.

Chelsey Dmytrowski, 19, of Bigrigg, tragically died on Friday after fighting acute myeloid leukaemia.

She was diagnosed in March 2018 and had received treatment at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.

Chelsey, a former West Lakes Academy pupil, was a devoted mum to her two-year-old son Charlie and a loving girlfriend to Dylan.

Her parents, Tony and Emma Dmytrowski, have paid tribute to their “kind and caring” daughter, who was “the bravest girl in the world”.

They said: “Chelsey was a remarkable daughter, sister, and mammy. She was stubborn, strong, kind and caring – all the traits that make you proud to be part of a family.

“When we were given the news about Chelsey’s AML, we were devastated as a family, but not once did she complain.

“She took all her treatment from March 2018 through to her transplant in July 2019 with a smile on her face, showing so much strength and resilience, even when there were bumps in the road.

“She always put others before herself including her son Charlie, partner Dylan and us as parents. There were no tears allowed when Chelsey was in the room.

“She was the bravest girl we will ever meet, an inspiration to us all, she has touched so many people with her personality in such a short time and will be remembered forever in our hearts.

“Thank you Chelsey for making us the proudest parents in the world.”

Chelsey was also a much-loved sister of Ben and Myla.

Her many friends have described her as “beautiful”, “sassy” and “funny”.

One, Amy Peet, said: “Chelsey was beautiful, fun-loving and spontaneous. She was the best friend anyone could ever have asked for, and a fabulous mother to her baby boy.

“Charlie will always be the gift that Chelsey left behind when she grew her wings, and we will always have a part of her in him.”

Alice Barwise said: “Chelsey has been there for me through thick and thin, and always provided a safe place for me to come to when I needed most.

“I’m going to be lost without her stubborn and brutal but honest and loving words to keep me on a straight path in life.”

Elisha Glen said: “Chelsey battled through this awful thing but was always there for me no matter what. She helped me through a lot and I will be forever grateful. I am so glad she got to bring Charlie into this world and I know he will be just like her. Chelsey will now forever be in my heart with the best memories I could ask for. Rest in Peace, my angel.”

Sophie Pickering added: “Chelsey was kind, caring, funny and loving, but also sassy, foul-mouthed, straight to the point and too stubborn for her own good. But we all loved every single thing about her. She’d tell everyone how it was and didn’t beat around the bush.

“I hope you keep the partying going in heaven, because you were never one to stop having a good time and I don’t think you will be now. I’ll never forget the amazing friend you were to me.”

Chelsey’s funeral will be held at 2pm on Friday in St Mary’s & St Michael’s Parish Church in Egremont. Donations can be made in Chelsey’s memory to Hospice at Home West Cumbria and Ward 34 Freeman Hospital, via F Irving & Son funeral directors.
