The Chicago Bears announced Monday that a familiar, and beloved name here at Q98.5, will be joining them in Philadelphia to announce their second round draft pick at the NFL Draft on April 28, 2017.

Kate Foster is a senior at Auburn High School, a gymnast, a former St. Jude patient, and an amazing young woman. Kate's cancer fight included having her leg amputated, but she has never let that stop her from chasing her dreams. I have had the honor of talking with Kate several times and am constantly amazed by her determination, strength, and poise. Obviously, the Bears organization feels the same way since they picked her to make a pretty big announcement for them...

Kate has told us for years that she wants to be a doctor and work for St. Jude when she gets older, and soon she will be one step closer to fulfilling that goal. After graduation, Kate will be attending the University of University of North Carolina and majoring in Biology.

You go, Kate!
