Detective Sarah Cato is battling incurable cancer — but that hasn’t stopped her battling major crimes.

And it hasn’t stopped her raising money for other cancer sufferers.

[…] Cato was then diagnosed with metatastic — also known as secondary — cancer, which is incurable. She underwent five months of chemotherapy and then a month of daily radiation.

The whole way through, apart from a few weeks at the end when she became fatigued from the intensive treatment, Cato carried on working.

She was heavily involved in Operation Nepal — the brutal sexual assault and murder of 69-year-old Cunxiu Tian in her family home in Te Atatu in January last year.

[…] Cato is also instrumental in the ongoing investigation into the abduction and sexual assault of an 11-year-old boy in Ranui.

The boy was taken and assaulted after he got off a train at the Ranui Railway Station on November 17 last year.

Cato said giving up work while she had treatment was not an option.
In November she dedicated her swim across Waitemata Harbour to the cancer Charity Sweet Louise, raising more than $18,000 to support people dealing with incurable cancer, and their families.

She is getting my vote for New Zealander of the year.
