NEW ORLEANS (July 16, 2014) Kristie Lewis, 40, of Hattiesburg, Miss., has been selected by the New Orleans Saints as a cheerleader on the NFL team's dance squad.
Lewis said she never thought she'd make the Saintsations because the vast majority of NFL cheerleaders are much younger than she is.
Lewis, a mother of two, is one of only two NFL dancers in the 40-plus age group, and she's the oldest ever to audition for the Saintsations.
She has a debilitating kidney disease that will eventually lead to dialysis and a kidney transplant.
