Kate is a CDH1 mutation carrier which greatly increases her risk of breast and gastric cancers. Because of this increased risk, Kate was diagnosed with breast cancer at 32 years old, and chose to have her entire stomach removed at 33 years old to prevent the rare, aggressive, and deadly gastric cancer caused by this gene from progressing. Kate has always expressed herself through writing, but decided to start this blog after her shocking diagnosis in 2018. This blog chronicles her life through it all, and now, in her life after total gastrectomy.
