DANVILLE -- After spending weeks fighting for her life, an area teen has lost the fight. Kaitlyn Foster passed away this morning.

The 15-year old got a heart transplant three years ago, but her body started rejecting it last month. She's been on life support ever since.

Her family says a benefit scheduled for her this weekend in Belgium will go on as planned. No word when services will be held.
