To the wonderful, abundant collection of humans in Kate’s life. I have been given the honour personally by Kate to write this post, should the time come.
I remember thinking that it would be more likely she would eventually write mine. Because this woman is a ball of resilience, an absolute knowledge fiend, beyond empathetic, loving to the core and above all, a fighter.

It is with a very heavy heart that I report that Kate passed away on Thursday afternoon in Wanaka, completely surrounded by loved ones, family and was free of pain.
I know this news is utterly devastating. I know how heart-wrenching it is that someone we all love, as well as a stunning mother of two that fought so bloody hard could be taken so early. I also know there’s a hell of a lot of cliches that could be said here.
But that’s not our Kate’s style.
She fought, hard. Bloody hard. And her many, many victories, her impact on others and the legacy of knowledge and successes she has left behind are cause for celebration.

This is the woman who upon finding out about her Stage 4 Cancer diagnosis bought the biggest, heaviest, peer reviewed book on treatment and ravaged through it. The woman who never allowed ‘the elephant in the room’, promptly named her cancer “Sharyn” (sorry to the Sharyn’s out there) and would verbally tirade against her- as she damn well should. This is the woman who allowed us the privilege to follow her physical journey and the emotions behind it. Kate always remained humble, with humility and her sense of humour fully intact. She refused to be a statistic, challenged and BEAT every prognosis, all whist continuing to work on her business helping people and being the most incredible mother, wife, friend and pun master (oh, that dry sense of humour).

A post shared by Kate Callaghan-Hormone Healer (@theholisticnutritionist) on

It would be impossible to do justice to her life’s work and her whole being in a single post, because her selfless pursuit has reached far across the globe.
Her legacy and work will live on in the books she wrote, posts, podcasts and her website. And of course in her gorgeous family. Cherish them.
On behalf of Kate I would like to thank EVERY SINGLE one of you for supporting her throughout her life and more recently, her cancer journey. From integrative doctors, healers, friends, family, those that donated to her cause to give her a fighting chance and the outpour of supportive messages and love, she is so incredibly grateful. So so grateful. She expressed it daily.
To say Kate will be missed would be a massive understatement. Be inspired by her strength, grace and adversity and empowered by the love she had for all. Hold each other a little tighter and celebrate your humans. It’s what she would have wanted.
We love you Kate. Forever. And hope there are never ending almond flat whites up there for you.

All the love in the world to Azza, Olivia, Ed and her beautiful family. We stand with you.

Updates regarding the celebration of Kate’s life will be coming in the near future as we give Kate’s amazing family time and space now to grieve. Xxx
