Country singer Debbie Cochran inspired by childhood cancer survivor

THE TITLE track of the new album by country singer Debbie Cochran 'Faith Can' has been inspired by Kate Foster, a 12-year-old gymnast who lost a leg after contracting acute myeloid leukaemia. Said the singer, "I have passed St Jude Children's Research Hospital many times heading down 'music highway' to the studio in Franklin, Tennessee. I have noticed all the parked vehicles on their campus and would say a silent prayer for the children and their families. As Kate's story came to life, I began to learn the importance of St Jude Children's Research Hospital and the mission of finding cures and saving children. I saw Kate in a St Jude commercial one evening on TV, tugging at my heart. These are real children, real moms and dads, real fears, real tears, real battles. Not long ago I discovered one Sunday morning Kate's grandparents sat behind me in church. It was at that moment the lyrics of 'Faith Can' were written on my heart. When I think of Kate, I think of St Jude. Together they moved a mountain." CR
