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.
Today we celebrate day one of our 25th Q98.5 Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon, so I took a few moments to think about all the amazing things this community has done for St. Jude kids over 25 years. Let me just say, these memories and numbers have brought me to tears, and have left me feeling so very proud.
