About Me

1486643_10151776273066714_498285200_nMy name is Katherine and I live in Manchester, UK. I’m a 42-year-old Scot living with secondary (stage IV) breast cancer. 

I’m a kilt-making, mountain-climbing blogger. I write about the good, the bad and the fugly effect cancer has on my life. I also love David Shrigley.

I was first diagnosed with primary breast cancer in June 2012 and had a recurrence in October 2013. In May 2014 I was diagnosed with metastatic (secondary or Stage IV) disease.

    I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?



  4. Hi,

    Would you be interested in being in a film about engineering to battle cancer? Would love to have a chat if you want to drop me an email.
