Kat’s Crew is inspired by childhood cancer champion, Katarina Burgess.
Kat was nine years old when she heard the word cancer in relation to the pain she had been having in her knee for months. She started 30 weeks of chemotherapy the day after her 10th birthday to shrink the tumour, followed by a 14-hour surgery to replace the femur in her left leg with the fibula from her right one. As a consequence of her treatment, Kat experienced several infections, more surgery and chemo, over 300 stitches, as well as a skin graft to close a scar on her thigh that would not heal.
“I missed a lot of my grade 5 school year. My friend group that I had at the time had moved on without me, so I lost many of my close relationships. I don’t think that many people really understand that there’s more to cancer than just being sick, I missed out on my whole school year, I spent Christmas in the hospital as well as the whole month of March which really caused me to fall behind on my studies and it feels like I am still struggling to keep up--even now five years later. After having many surgeries to remove the cancer there are lots of scars on my leg. I get a lot of weird looks and questions about my different-looking leg, which I think is the hardest part of my journey, as that part hasn’t ended yet.”
Kat is already making a difference in the lives of kids with cancer. When she started losing her hair, she hosted a head-shaving event to raise money for charity, followed by other charitable events, donating over $75k to Cancer-related charities. Kat will be speaking at the October 2022 Toronto Women’s Run benefitting POGO.
