We Raised $11k for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer #TEAMCAIT


(uplifting music) – Team Kate raised over
$11,000 from colleagues, friends, family, people
that I’ve never met before. I’ve never seen such an
outpouring of generosity and love, and I’m just completely
flabbergasted and awe-inspired that this cause can bring so
much love and good attention. I was diagnosed in August
and one of the first things that I wanted to do was to. (laughing) – She wanted to run a 5k, but I told her, hey, we can start out slow,
so let’s do the walk first. – That was pretty much
exactly what happened and two other women in our practice have unfortunately battled
and now survived cancer so it’s something that’s a dear cause to us both personally and professionally. So, that’s where it, and Stefanie definitely
was the person behind spearheading everything.
– Kate made it easy. (laughing) – I have the absolute most supportive team that I could ever imagine. Everybody is working with me to enable me to do what I love which
is take care of patients and so regardless of where
I am in my treatment, I’ve been able to work. (rustling) They’ve supported me in whatever hours I need to work, adjustments. Day-to-day people are
bringing me Gatorades and (laughs) power drinks and making sure that I can keep going through the day, coming to me and giving
me hugs and support and I work in the best
place I could ever imagine and I don’t think if I didn’t
work here that I’d be able to be this far and this
strong in my treatment. You can do it, like you
just have to battle through. Be strong, it’s one foot
in front of the other. It’s not easy, every day is difficult but what I’ve found helps
me is doing what I love which is taking care of patients and working with amazing people. So do what you love. Don’t stop doing what you love. Fight your hardest. – Kate’s an amazing doctor. Kate is an amazing friend. I think if you know Kate, you know that Kate loves
taking care of people. Unfortunately she’s the patient but she’s still pushing through
taking care of everyone else and she’s inspiring other
women to let them know that they can get through this too. (light laughing) – Steph has been my biggest
cheerleader through everything. – We don’t get to cry. (laughing) – She’s one of the strongest people I know and without her I don’t
think I would be here. – [Stefanie] (mumbling) Stop crying. (laughing)
