Thanks for the Mammaries
Thanks for the Mammaries is an honest recount of author Kate Gale’s journey with cancer. After being diagnosed at the young age of twenty-seven with breast cancer, she fought a hard, uphill battle, stared it in the eye, and won.
Life was getting back to normal when tragedy struck Kate’s young family again when her husband was diagnosed with renal cancer five years later. What followed was the biggest curveball that Kate had been handed to date when roles were reversed, and she was sitting on the other side of a cancer diagnosis. It opened her eyes to life, what was important, who was important, and which direction she wanted to go in.
Kate had now seen both sides of the disease, from two different perspectives, and knew that she had to break down the barriers that surrounded cancer. Her positive, inspiring, and honest attitude towards her battles are not only refreshing but is something that will leave you wondering what is important to you.
Kate shows you how dreaming big, giving back, and having a never give up kind of attitude can turn a negative into a positive whilst continuing to smile.
Meet Kate Gale
Hi, I’m Kate Gale. A wife, a mum, a fun-loving character who just happens to be a cancer survivor and champion supporter.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 27. I was busy being a mum to two gorgeous daughters aged three and one, working in my dream job as a hairdresser, being a wife to my husband Bob, and living life to the fullest. Never one to shy away from a challenge, I suited up, strapped on my superhero cape and faced cancer head-on. I lost a breast, endured chemo and radiation therapies and I lost my identity along the way.
