Meet Katie.

katie, BCAM

In October last year, Katie and her husband started on a health-kick.

What started as a journey to drop some COVID-19 kilos and feel better, ultimately saved Katie's life.

"I don't think I would have felt it if I hadn't lost that weight."

“I think I lost about six kilos. And after that, I felt it (the lump). It was quite small, and I don’t think I would have felt it if I hadn't lost that weight.”—Katie

Katie initially didn’t think much of it but made an appointment with her GP anyway. After a single day of multiple tests, her world was turned upside down.

She remembered sitting in the doctor’s office by herself, having just heard the words “you have breast cancer” and Katie knew exactly where she would receive her treatment – Mater.

Katie had both her children at Mater and immediately asked for a referral to a Mater surgeon.

Two days later, Katie, her husband, and their two children relocated from Darwin to Brisbane, where she would start treatment.

After surgery and six rounds of chemotherapy, Katie is so grateful for the care and treatment she received at Mater.
Upon reflection, she recalls:

“It's the ‘little things’ that make all the difference. It's hard to accept at first, but it's really wonderful.”
