Kate Freebairn is a familiar face across the South Australian community, seen nightly on Adelaide’s TEN Eyewitness News First At Five, presenting live weather reports on location.

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.
