Help Kate raise money

For participating in West Fight On

Why I support West Cancer Foundation

My experience with West Cancer Center began in 2013, when I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer.  I was 32 years old, newly married, healthy, and active and a cancer diagnosis was the farthest thing from my mind.  

Rusty and I started Team 5-Kate in 2013 to raise both awareness and funds for cancer research.  Since my initial diagnosis, I have had several reoccurrence and have experienced first hand the benefits from innovative procedures and treatments, which have been used to treat my cancer. The development of these types of cutting edge procedures as well as continued advances with trials and other immunotherapy drugs are made possible by funding cancer research and I am asking for your help again this year!

While our experiences may be different, one thing that is the likely the same is the impact that cancer has had on our lives in some way.

I would love for you to join me on Team 5-Kate, as we COME TOGETHER, in the fight against cancer.   Thank you for your support, FIGHT ON!
