Beyond the Games: Kathleen Rogan

Beyond the Games: Kathleen Rogan (WRGB)

NISKAYUNA, NY (WRGB)--Glenville native Kathleen Rogan had high expectations for 2015.

A competitive masters runner, Rogan had laid out goals and times she intended to hit on the course the year she turned 50.

However, in January, a retinal detachment with multiple tears in her right eye halted Rogan right in her tracks.

Despite preemptive work, just a few months later, the same thing happened to Rogan's left eye.

Even after multiple surgeries, Rogan now has permanent damage to her cornea and pupils.

Over the past two years, Rogan has gotten back on her feet, and will run through the streets of Albany again.
