A fundraising week on what would have been Kelly Turner's 21st birthday has raised £550.
The money will be used to help others suffering the rare cancer that took her life four years ago, when she was 17.
Kelly's parents Linda and Martin Turner were aided by the Dover Morrisons store, which put up a display from March 22 to 28.
The teenager would have been 21 on March 24.
Mr Turner announced on Facebook yesterday: "Thanks so much wonderful Morrisons Dover for fundraising for our Kelly Turner Foundation during her 21st Birthday.
"£550 is an awesome amount to help us support research for a cure for DSRCT cancer."
Mr Turner particularly thanked store community champion Jemma Abbitt who had organised the event.
A display at the store had a collection bucket plus postcards with Kelly's artwork for sale plus wristbands with the hashtag #doingitforkelly.
A trolley of goods was raffled for £1 a ticket on Saturday, March 27, and a balloon arch was placed around the table display on March 24.
Kelly, of Dover, had a condition called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumours and she needed £1 million for specialist lifesaving treatment in New York.
They held events and made cash donations so that more than half the sum needed was raised in her lifetime.
Tragically she succumbed to the disease on November 6, 2017.
The money raised was transferred to help others with her condition and fundraising continues through the Kelly Turner Foundation.
The total sum raised since Kelly was diagnosed in 2015 to today was £639,795 and you can donate through its JustGiving page here.
