How a Fall Saved One UK Gymnast’s Life


It’s been almost a year since UK gymnast Shelby Hilton’s career came to an end with a fall during her floor routine.  The fall isn’t what stopped her, it’s what they found later at the hospital.  Since discovering cancer in her brain, she’s not only fought it back, but she remains on track to graduate this December.

WKYT’s Lee K. Howard tells her inspiring story.  WARNING: It’s a tear-jerker.
