Kerri-Anne Kennerley reveals the deep bond she shares with Sally Obermeder as they remember how they both beat breast cancer 10 years ago

TV stars Kelly Ann Kennerly and Sally Overmeder have revealed the bond they shared while battling breast cancer.

Kelly Ann told The Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday that she first had a deep connection with Sally in 2013 after she checked into Mater Hospital in North Sydney for treatment.

At the time, Sally, now 48, had just undergone breast cancer surgery at the same hospital.

Kerri-Anne recalls that the stars quickly became best friends.

“Something inside me made me look for her,” the Dancing With The Stars favorite revealed.

Kerri-Anne, 68, said she knew of Sally’s distress at the time.

Sally was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2011 at the age of 38 and had regular checkups while pregnant with her daughter, Annabelle.

“Before I got the diagnosis, I followed her story,” Kelly Ann said. “And I found her incredibly inspiring.”

The stars were bonded in their battle with the disease after Kelly Ann asked Sally to “say hello” while she was in the hospital.

In 2015, when appearing on Seven’s The Daily Edition, Kerri-Anne tearfully recalled her first meeting with Sally.

“You are the one who gave me strength,” she told her during a live interview.

“The day I had my surgery, I had heard all about you, but had never actually met you,” she continued.

Kelly-Ann continues:

“I walked into your room. You gave me the best support, and what you were going through was worse.”

Sally was declared cancer-free in 2012 after undergoing chemotherapy, two mastectomies and reconstructive surgery.
