Earlier this month, A Michigan father was accused of robbing a credit union.
After his arrest, he told police something heartbreaking — that he needed the money to pay for his daughter's cancer treatments!
On August 12, Brian Randolph allegedly robbed the Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon, Michigan. According to reports, the 23-year-old entered the building and handed over a note that demanded money — and also said that he had a shotgun hidden in his clothes.
After his arrest, Randolph told authorities that the robbery was an act of desperation to help pay for his 1-year-old daughter's chemotherapy treatments.
The father claimed that his insurance company was no longer paying
We are incredibly heartbroken!
In an interview with USA Today published on Monday, the My Heart Will Go On singer dishes on the various emotions she will have on her first show back.
The 47-year-old said:
"That first show, it will be fragile… There will be moments. Of emptiness, laughter, awkwardness, tearing up. But that's the point of coming back — otherwise, I [would] just release an album."
The Canadian originally went on hiatus to care for her ailing husband, who has battled throat cancer for several years and has to be fed through a tube three times a day.
While the musician constantly asks medical professionals how long he has left to live, they still don't have an answer:
This fight is a lot to take in.
While most of the feuds in the Real Housewives franchise are certainly intense, not many have been as serious as Orange County's latest fight.
That's because on Monday night's all new episode of the Bravo docu-series, Vicki Gunvalson's ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' cancer subplot came to a head.
When Tamra Judge asked a psychic if he really had cancer, the medium wasn't too sure if Brooks was really telling the truth.
Well, Vicki eventually found out about the conversation through Tamra and Shannon Beador, and somehow came to the conclusion that newbie Meghan King Edmonds was at fault during Heather Dubrow's luncheon.
While Meghan had questioned Brooks' honesty, we're not too sure why she simply didn't say that it was Tamra who asked the controversial question in the first place.
It's a messy argument that has both sides ending in tears, and it's one of the most emotional moments in OC's ten-year run
Ch-ch-check out the most dramatic RHOC fight this season (above)!!!
P.S. How can Vicki knock Meghan for listening to a psychic when she literally had a séance already this season…
This is so sad!
Vanessa Hudgens recently opened up about her father's health, revealing he has been diagnoses with stage four cancer.
Previously she made no mention of Greg's health other than in an Instagram post almost a month ago, where she wrote: "My daddy and I ❤️❤️❤️ Please pray for his healing!!! The more prayers the better. 🙏🙏🙏🙏."
It must have been so hard for her to open up!
So it's totally understandable the actress struggled through her speech while accepting her award for Breakthrough Performer at Wednesday night's Industry Dance Awards when she shared:
Shannen Doherty Opens Up About Her Cancer Diagnosis — See What She Has To Say About The Scary Situation
Shannen Doherty is putting on a brave face while battling breast cancer.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 star was diagnosed with the disease back in March, but kept the information under wraps until Wednesday, when she filed a lawsuit against her former business manager.
The actress is suing Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson because they didn't pay for her health insurance premium, leaving her uninsured in 2014.
The suit says that during that time, the cancer was able to spread to at least one of her lymph nodes, when she wasn't able to regularly visit the doctor.
And now that her illness has been made public, the 44-year-old is opening up about her breast cancer, saying:
Shannen Doherty revealed that she has breast cancer, and she's blaming it all on her former business manager!
The Charmed star has filed legal papers against Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson because she says her management was negligent when handling her health insurance, which is why her diagnosis is so serious.
Shannen claims in the lawsuit that, in 2013, the company received a bill for her insurance for the year of 2014, but ignored the invoice.
As we previously reported, WWE legend Rowdy Roddy Piper passed away back in July at 61-years-old — leaving behind his wife and four children.
And on Wednesday, the cause of his death was finally revealed.
Reportedly, the star died of a pulmonary embolism that triggered a heart attack.
The late athlete suffered from hypertension which led to chronic high blood pressure and eventually the blood clot in his lungs. Unfortunately, we're not shocked by this news as clotting is often a side effect to high blood pressure.
Previously Roddy, whose real name is Roderick George Toombs, was a cancer survivor before his untimely death. Nonetheless, it was just last year that the wrestler confirmed his cancer was in remission.
We're still saddened by the news that this legend is no longer with us — we can only imagine what his family is going through.
Our hearts go out to Roddy's loved ones during this difficult time.
