I'm Kate (28) a local Sydney resident.
Last week I celebrated my two year milestone since receiving the news that I had cancer. The last two years have been an absolute whirlwind and although they have been the hardest and most challenging they have also been the most rewarding.
I have travelled to some of the most amazing places in the world, have closer friendships than ever before, I am the fittest I have ever been in my life and my career is going fantastic. Without the disruption of cancer I may not be in the position I am today and for that I am very grateful. I realise that not everyone is as lucky with this horrible disease and therefore I am now focussing on fundraising to help Cure Cancer Australia find a cure for cancer.
In just over a week I am going to be taking on a new challenge of a lifetime by tackling the famous Kokoda trail to raise money for Cure Cancer. After months of preparation I am looking forward to this life changing adventure.
Look forward discovering the stories of others,
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
