A brave Coalisland mum has tragically lost her battle with cancer, leaving behind her three young children and new husband.

Lisa Watt [nee Toner], is understood to have passed away in the early hours of this morning at her home in Coalisland.

The young mum leaves behind her three children, Aaron, 12, Ellie, 10 and Daryl, just two, as well as husband Noel, parents and sister Ciara.

Lisa’s battle with cancer touched the people of Mid Ulster.

The mum-of-three was told she her illness was terminal last August, but determined to fight it, started fundraising for a possible life-saving treatment in the US.

Sadly, she became ill whilst away and was forced to return home before completing the treatment.

Determined to make the most of her time, the 31-year-old married her fiancé Noel in a lavish ceremony January.

Tributes have been paid to Lisa online.

Lisa’s best friend and bridesmaid, Justine McMahon, said: “Heaven has gained a true angel. Lisa Watt I’m honoured to say u were my best friend and such a strong girl. Love you sooooo much and u will forever be in my heart! R.I.P sweetie xxxxxxxx

“RIP dear Lisa, you have joined the Angels in heaven,” said another. “Mummy will be there by your side to guide & miss you.”

Others have shared their condolences with her family at this very sad time.
