12-year-old Rose McGrath wants to help advance childhood cancer research. She understands first hand why it's so important: She herself has fought leukemia.

That's why Rose and her folks have put together an event set for this Wednesday, January 7 called "Jump to Support Childhood Cancer Research" at the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Kalamazoo. Proceeds will benefit St. Baldrick's Foundation, which seeks to advance childhood cancer research.

Rose and her mother, Dr. Barbara McGrath, were guests on The Richard Piet Show on WBCK and told their stories. Hear the interview by clicking the player below.
