Cathy Kilpatrick says she doesn’t sweat the small stuff following her breast cancer diagnosis

By Crystal Nelson

BRIGHTON — Having breast cancer has taught Cathy Kilpatrick not to “sweat the small stuff.” In fact, since being diagnosed with HER2 breast cancer about a year ago, the positive-thinking 63-year-old Brighton resident has made it her slogan.
    Kilpatrick said early detection saved her life and was at work on Aug. 4 at 3:30 p.m. when she found out she had cancer. She said it was like a cliché where someone gets the phone call where they learn they have cancer and say, “wait a second, run that by me again.”
