This week on The Local Show, we introduce a new series of features called Women and Girls Lead in which we profile females from all walks of life who inspire us with stories of resilience, hope and empowerment. The series, created for the web and TV, is a collaboration between KCPT and the Independent Television Service. We begin by introducing you to the story of Olathe resident Monica Steiner who is battling Stage 4 breast cancer and fighting to save the lives of others through her IronTeam fundraising efforts for cancer research.
Catch more of our Women and Girls Lead profiles in future editions of The Local Show. The series features five women and girls from Kansas City.
