Katherine’s background is in media sponsorship & promotions, sports event management & fundraising. When her mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer January 2010 she felt compelled to get involved in the fight against cancer. In June 2010 Katherine was appointed as Project Manager for Breakthrough Breast Cancers £5 Million NW Appeal and subsequently became an Appeal Board Member. During this time she was exposed to the inspirational and ground breaking research of Professor Michael Lisanti which led to her founding OMGTEA Ltd. A percentage of their profits go into The Healthy Life Foundation.
Founder of Boot Out Breast Cancer – Debbie decided to set up the charity in 2010 after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was one of the lucky ones as her cancer was discovered early and her prognosis was very good.She has a team of 10 friends who are all determined to make a difference. Each committed to fundraising and to making sure that every penny raised is spent on some much needed equipment in the NHS. The overall aim is to provide equipment for as many breast cancer units in the North West as possible.Since coming into contact with Professor Michael Lisanti a few years back Debbie has been a huge supporter of his ground breaking research and was therefore delighted to be asked to help found The Healthy Life Foundation.
