She was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2012 and underwent a double mastectomy. Two years later at the New York Walk for Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases, Kathy revealed (in a pre-recorded message) that she has lymphedema in her arms as a result of the double mastectomy, and she began serving on the Lymphatic Education & Research Network’s honorary board as a chairperson later that year. Bates also became a spokesperson for lymphedema, and in 2018, she took part in Capitol Hill Lobby Day in an attempt to get more research funding for the condition and spoke at the DC/VA Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases. She was honored with a 2018 WebMD Health Heroes “Game Changer” Award for her dedication to raising awareness of lymphedema.
