12-year-old battles disease with help of friends and family


A young gymnast is fighting for her life but she doesn't have to do it alone.

12-year-old Kate Foster is a fighter. Not in the literal sense. But she is in a fight against cancer and the complications that have temporarily sidelined her in the sport she loves most: gymnastics.

Fittingly, a group of her supporters get fit to raise money for her treatments. Crossfit draws in Kate's family and friends for a benefit in her name.
