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.
Climbing the mountain, which is cancer was no easy feat, in fact it was the hardest thing I had to do. That was until I heard the words ‘You have cancer’ for a second time, only this time around it wasn’t me it was Bob. Five years after my diagnosis, Bob was diagnosed with renal cancer and here we were facing yet another mountain.
I want to share with you all how I beat cancer, how I found my identity again and how I found the courage to dream big. So, strap yourselves in and come on the journey of me writing a book, what it takes to publish and ride the rollercoaster with me of becoming a published author, an inspirational speaker and a champion supporter. I encourage you to ask questions of yourself and me, and let’s break down the walls of cancer together. I may have had cancer, but it never had me!
