Lindsay native named honorary bat girl for Jays game

Lindsay native Katie Davidson will be the honorary bat girl for the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.
The 32-year-old has terminal cancer and is on her way back from a retreat for patients battling cancer in Wisconsin.
Davidson says she was first diagnosed at 26, and then diagnosed again with stage-4 breast cancer at 31.
She says the cancer is now in her bones.
Davidson is taking part in a clinical drug trial in the U.S.

On Sunday, when the Jays take on the Mariners, Davidson will be recognized on the field.
She will be presented with a jersey, flowers and a pink bat.
Davidson will then watch the game with her family.

The lifelong Jays fan, who grew up idolizing first baseman John Olerud, says she wants to put a younger face on breast cancer.
She says despite what doctors told her, you can’t be too young to get cancer.
