Kate Freebairn / Channel 10 TV Presenter

Kate is a familiar face across the South Australian community, now seen on Adelaide’s 10 News First weekday bulletin with Max Burford. Previously, Kate has held the position of weather presenter for 10 News First Melbourne and Adelaide.

Kate lost her Nana, Pauline, to bowel cancer when she was nine years old.

Watching Pauline lose her brave fight against cancer has inspired Kate to help other families avoid losing their own loved ones, by spreading the message that bowel cancer can be prevented through screening, and the importance of knowing the symptoms and leading a healthy lifestyle.
