Missy Franklin Surprises Swimmer With Rare Form Of Cancer


Gold medal swimmer Missy Franklin made a young woman’s holiday wish come true on Tuesday.

Franklin visited a cancer patient at Rocky Mountain Hospital For Children.

Rebecca Carcaterra was in the middle of her sophomore year of college when a tumor was found in her shoulder this October. She was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive bone cancer.

Carcaterra has been a competitive swimmer since she was 6 years old and has always looked up to Franklin. So when Carcaterra’s father sent a letter asking Franklin to visit, she was happy to say yes.
