Lauren Hill, Patt SummitThis week, we bring you the story of three exceptional and inspirational student-athletes.

We start at McMurry University in Texas, where junior Christian Chavez competes on the War Hawks swim team despite being born without a right eye socket and with extremely limited vision in his left eye. We also take you to Rutgers University in New Jersey, where Lindsey Kayati competes as a tennis player even though she has epilepsy.

Kevin Kugler also has an update on the amazing story of Lauren Hill, a basketball player at Mount St. Joseph who continues to raise money and reach new personal goals – all while battling a rare and terminal form of brain cancer.
