Kate Corney was diagnosed with Stage IVb Hodgkin Lymphoma in July 2014 and has been living with cancer ever since.

Kate read History at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge. After graduating, Kate worked as a Conference Producer in London. Kate started teaching History at Brighton College in 2012 before, in 2013, moving to Haileybury College in Hertfordshire.

Since her diagnosis, Kate has been working to change perceptions of life with cancer. Macmillan documented Kate’s story in May 2015 (http://www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/resources-and-publications/stories/kate-hodgkin-lymphoma/kate-support.html) and she recorded an appeal for Macmillan which was played on Absolute Radio in October 2016. Kate has attended many Macmillan Coffee Mornings including one, in October 2016, at the Houses of Parliament.

Kate spoke for Macmillan at their Annual Ball in November 2016 and she also spoke at the Britain Against Cancer Conference in December 2016.

Kate volunteers for the National Trust and she is hoping to return to teaching some time in 2017.
