"It just shows you how great people are". That was Ashlyn Clark's reaction after meeting Cubs ace Jon Lester.
Lester invited Ashlyn Clark and her family to Wrigley Field for a game, and an autograph. Hers! Wednesday night at his NVRQT fundraiser for pediatric cancer awareness, Lester said he will keep Clark's autograph in his locker.
Clark, a senior at Humboldt High, has stage four Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and hit a home run this season between chemo treatments at the Mayo Clinic. Lester is a cancer survivor, and three time World Series champion.
Once she returns from Chicago, Clark resumes chemo and radiation. Her mom, Kristi, believes Ashlyn will soon be cancer free.
