Tributes have been paid to a "kind and beautiful" mum who has died of cancer after collapsing suddenly at home weeks before her dream wedding.

Rachel Harrison, 39, suffered a fatal brain haemorrhage at her home in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

After being rushed to hospital, she was given the devastating news her cancer had returned, triggering a brain haemorrhage.

She passed away on August 13.

A GoFundMe campaign set up to raise money for her funeral costs has raised more than £5,000.

Magenta Reeves, who set up the petition, said she had recovered from melanoma five years ago.

Ever since she had been "living a healthy happy lifestyle" with her boyfriend Robert and his two daughters Libby and Ebony, she said.

The couple were due to get married in October and had been planning their dream wedding.

Magenta said: "Tragically Rachel collapsed and was taken to hospital where unbeknown to anyone including Rachel, the doctors explained the cancer had returned causing a brain haemorrhage."

She went on: "Rachel was the most kind and beautiful lady who would do anything for anyone in a heartbeat, she spent her adult life raising money for charities constantly taking part in fitness events and always giving all she could to others.

"This page is for anyone who wishes to donate a little something towards the funeral costs or whatever Robert, Rachel's mum Sandra and sister Sarah wish to use the money for as they find a way to move forward into the future in a way nobody had ever prepared to."

While Claire and Dan Clark wrote: "I didn't know Rachel but she is my friend's sister and my heart breaks for her, Tom, Becky, Chloe and Caitlin."
