A special milestone for Bowral Based charity Rare Cancers Australia which will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Sunday.

The birthday also coincides with the retirement of RCA co-founder and Bowral local, Kate Vines.

Her husband Richard said Kate has been the inspiration behind the organisation after being diagnosed with a rare thyroid cancer more than 30 years ago.

"Against all the odds she was given three months to live and suffice to say that the clinician got it wrong and she's still here.

"She was really the guiding light, when we set up the charity to makesure the kind of challenges she faced were mitigated by the organisation,"Mr. Vines said.
