In October of 2016 Kate was diagnosed with "Metastic low-grade serious ovarian cancer stage 3C ". In December of the same year Kate had then undergone surgery which took 12 hours to complete. In this surgery Kate had her spleen removed and half her bowel removed and alongside this, had everything stripped. This process had also permanently damaged her nerves. During this surgery Kate also had a chemo flushed through her and a stoma bag put on. Kate was discharged from hospital just before Christmas that same year.
In May of 2017 Kate was flown to Melbourne due to bowel leakage. For a week Kate was stuck in hospital and was put on heavy medication and couldn't eat for a week. This had fixed the problem and was discharged once again on the 30th of May. On the 19th of December Kate had found out via a cut scan that her Cancer was back. Because Kate's cancer is so rare it's hard for treatments to work . All they can do is get ct scan and and just watch it slowly grow.
The money that is raised will be going directly to Kate to hopefully help pay some medical expenses and take the burden off.
