Kathy Bates is a courageous warrior against cancer

Stories of Hollywood celebrities fighting for their health remind us that they’re just like us. In a recent interview on Dr. Phil, Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates opened up about her battle with cancer and the challenges she faced in silence. Despite her celebrity status, Kathy Bates found herself playing the role of a courageous fighter in a real-life drama, battling cancer not once, but twice.

Her determination and fortitude enabled her to beat ovarian cancer and remain cancer-free for many years. However, her battle was not over when her doctor informed her that the cancer had returned, this time in her breast. Despite this setback, Bates wasn’t totally surprised, as breast cancer runs in her family.

In her battle against breast cancer, Bates made the decision to undergo a double mastectomy to halt its progression. Instead of letting her tragedy consume her spirit, she turned it into a source of motivation for other women.

Along the way, Ms. Bates discovered a sense of purpose and resilience. She says: “I’m grateful that my trials have given me a sense of purpose. It’s interesting to see how things work out that way.
