The Gala 2022

By Kate Price

I’m fundraising for Cancer Council Victoria to help stop cancer.

My name is Kate Price, and I have been fundraising for the Victorian Cancer Council for over 14 years now. My life has been intertwined with cancer since I was 4years old. It is a disease I know all too well and I fundraise in order to raise money to help spread awareness, develop preventions and fund support programs for those, who, like my Mum, have battled or are currently battling cancer. 

I carry the BRCA1 genetic mutation which increases one's chances of developing breast, ovarian, prostate, skin and pancreatic chances. At 27 I made the decision to have a preventative double mastectomy after watching my mum beat cancer 4 times - as she also carries the gene. But unlike many others, our story is a good one, because we are here to share it!

Every year more than 35,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’. This is not a stat I like. 

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.

Cancer Council needs our support more than ever this year. Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future. By supporting my Gala, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.

If you can donate the cost of a cup of coffee, a night out, or a new top then you are making a difference! Every SINGLE dollar counts. 

Thank-you for helping me make a difference, I appreciate it beyond words. 

And let this be your reminder to check your bits. All of them. Have a feel - and for god's sake, if you notice something is wrong, see a doctor. 

IMMEDIATELY. 

Ladies: breasts, collarbones and armpits please!

Men, same! But add a ball check too! 

Stay safe my friends. 

Love Kate Xo
