At the time of writing, Kate had surpassed her $25,000 AUD goal and raised a total of $31,755 (£17,663).

“Our beautiful Kate is going through the unimaginable… This week begins the fight of her life as she begins chemotherapy,” the fundraising page reads.

“She will lose her beautiful hair and will not be able to bear children in the future. This is terrible news for anyone, let alone the age of 36, with no family history of breast cancer.

“Kate will then need chemo infusions every three weeks for the rest of her life, and possibly radiotherapy and surgery.”

“You have no idea how my headspace changed when I went into it because of all of you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.’
