I first met Rockford's Kate Foster 4 years ago when she came to the Cherryvale Mall to share her St. Jude story with us. She had just returned from Memphis a few days earlier after going through a bone marrow transplant to treat her second bout with cancer. The strides she has made in the last 4 years, is absolutely incredible, and I am so honored to know this amazingly inspirational young woman. Here's Kate's St. Jude story.


As Kate said, she has a gymnastic meet this weekend. Here's some footage of her in action last year. Just look what she is able to do, despite cancer taking one of her legs.
