Cancer changed everything for Kate

I had Stage 3 bowel cancer. I was shocked. I wondered how this could happen to me. Kate, onj patient
Kate Morgan and Pepper hero

Two years ago Kate, wife and mother to two beautiful boys was feeling very unwell. Over time, she became sicker and frailer. Her family were concerned. She was constantly tired, had lost a lot of weight and just wanted to sleep. 

Kate was given the devastating news she had Stage 3 bowel cancer. "I was shocked. I wondered how this could happen to me. I'd never been sick..."

For six weeks Kate had intensive radiation and chemotherapy. Surgery to remove the cancer followed. "One of the really frightening moments was being told I would need to wear a colostomy bag forever. However six months later I had wonderful re-constructive surgery."

It was a scary time, however Kate says the staff at the ONJ Centre were amazing, providing world-class care and support in a beautiful setting.

Two and half years later, she is cancer free.
