An 18-year-old from Rockford will be on ESPN and the NFL Network tonight announcing the Chicago Bears second round draft pick. If you're wondering how a Rockford teen was lucky enough to get an amazing opportunity like this, just watch this video and you'll immediately understand why.

Luck isn't the reason Kate Foster got this honor from the Chicago Bears, she earned it by inspiring so many athletes to never give up on their dreams.

Y'all, I can't lie. When I saw this video come across my Facebook feed I automatically got covered with goosies and my heart swelled with pride. We've often told you about Kate's cancer battle at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Two weeks ago we told you Kate had been chosen by the Bears to join them at the 2017 NFL Draft. Here's why...


Now I have one more confession to make, I simply adore Kate, and I have since the first time I met her. Kate, I don't mean to sound like a stalker or groupie, but I am constantly in awe of your positivity and determination. Life has handed you some major lemons, and you have overcome them all with such grace, courage and strength. If only we could all be like Kate.
