'I will pay my own way to take them up there if they want to go. The money shouldn’t go to us because there’s so many more people out there who need the help,' she told Daily Mail Australia, while thanking the donors for the generosity.

Ms Green said she raised Noah 13, Caitlyn 11, Caleb 11, and Isaac, 7, by herself after Mr Keans moved to Queensland.

Ms Green's brothers tried to step up and be father figures, but Noah in particular was shaken when one of them took his own life last year.

Ms Green is hunting for a child psychologist to speak with the children and find out the best way forward.

'I’m worried about them seeing their dad for the first time in all these years and then him dying, what that will do to them mentally and emotionally,' she said.

'Not only do they have to go see a man they don’t know, but he’s dying – they’ve never seen someone dying before.

'They already grieved for him once when he left and they’ll have to grieve for him all over again.'

Ms Green said she would take her children to see their father if a psychologist confirmed it would be safe for them.

'They're so confused and they're under so much pressure in the spotlight. They're crying and don't know what to do.

'They ask "do we have to go now, we're going to feel bad if we don't go". My daughter is saying "mummy I don't want to go, I don't want to go, I'm scared".

Ms Green said she first knew of Mr Keans' terminal brain cancer when his parents called her on July 25, telling her his last wish was to see his kids.

She said after all this time she wanted to talk with her children to see how they would feel about seeing him as he underwent chemotherapy in Brisbane.

As all this was being explained to the kids and the visit was being organised, the Queensland border was abruptly closed from August 8.

Ms Green said the next communication she had with Mr Keans' parents was last Wednesday when they said they were waiting on the application.

Hours later, she suddenly saw her children's faces splashed across the news - a photo from the 'last good day' they had as a family.

'The kids were shocked, they had friends and teachers asking them questions at school the next day,' she said.

'They never told me they were going to do that, nothing.'

Mr Keans' father Bruce Langborne said the children's final goodbyes will be marred by strict coronavirus protocols.

The kids will be forced to wear PPE and won't be able to hug or even touch their father.

'He's just going to see these masked-up little people. He's not really going to be able to interact with them and they can't interact with him and that's not really what he wants,' he said.
