My girlfriend (now fiancé) was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on February 13th. The doctors outlined a 6 session course in which she has done great and over the weekend when she came in for her last chemo session, I threw a big surprise proposal at the hospital.

I hope you all enjoy it as I put lots of time and work on all of this with the help of my family, 2nd family, friends, and nurses at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital!

Thank you all who helped me, I couldn't have pulled this off without your help!

PS: If you would like to get straight to the knee part, skip to 2:50, enjoy!

Mike Wilson, a professional parkour and freerunning athlete, wanted to do something special for his 5-year old son Jayden, who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.

So on his birthday this year, he made a replica Spider-Man suit and jumped down from the roof to pay him a visit, capturing the moment with a hidden GoPro camera.

You can read more updates about Brayden on his Facebook page.

This is Angela Zhang, a Californian student who just won $100,000 in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. Her contribution to the competition? Nothing big, just discovering a cell that can fight cancer. Oh sorry, I meant developed that cell. Her work, titled "Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells," is a total mouthful, but some are saying it's a real "Swiss army-knife" in the fight against cancer - helping both the treatment of cancer cells and their detection.

Did I mention that she's seventeen years old?

And with that, I'm going to go pretend like I've accomplished something with my life.
