Kate’s husband, Derek Draper, contracted Covid-19 and was placed in a medically induced coma. Initially, Kate was told that he would not survive. A year later he was still in hospital and is thought to be the UK's longest-fighting Covid-19 patient. In her book The Power Of Hope, Kate shares the raw and emotional story of the devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on her family, with a heart-breaking yet inspirational account of battling adversity and coping with uncertainty about the future. In The Strength of Love: Embracing an Uncertain Future with Resilience and Optimism, Kate looks at the impact of trauma as well as the importance of resilience, adaptability, curiosity, and positivity when recovering from it.
