Content Writer and Strategist, The Splendid Word
Member of Girls Night Out Committee
In 2015 at just 32 with a two year old and a four month old baby, Katie’s world turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Katie found from her own experiences, the impact of the kindness and generosity of the community and after her treatment in 2016, decided to join the GNO Committee to ensure others felt the same level of love and support that she did during their treatments and what is such a physical, emotional and financial strain to the individual and their family.
Katie joined as a Cancer and Wellness Centre Ambassador in 2020 to coincide with the launch of the project and share her story with the community. Katie is looking forward to seeing the centre come to fruition and knows that it will provide a huge support to cancer patients in the Echuca Moama and wider region.
