What a nightmare!

Let's journey back to the 2006 Grammys… it was a HUGE night for Kelly Clarkson as she became the first American Idol contestant to win not one, but TWO awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Since U Been Gone and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway.

The then-23-year-old also took the stage that night to perform her classic ballad Because Of You.

As if the tensions weren't high enough, this was all going on the very same day doctors mistakenly diagnosed the songstress with cancer.

The 39-year-old confirmed she's been undergoing "intensive treatment" but noted "the prognosis is good," explaining:

"Mom is doing better. She's been through a lot and my dad's been through a lot. It's been a really hard year for them."

Galynn had missed most of Brady's games this year due to radiation treatments and chemotherapy, though she was able to make the big game and witness her son's fifth Super Bowl victory.

Brady said Sunday's game "was a nice win for her," adding:

A source said:

"Joe just started radiation. He feels fine, he's getting through it and still working. It's all scheduled once a week. He's super optimistic. Doctors are hopeful that this will take care of it and be the last step, and he will hopefully then be in remission and cancer-free. Joe just says he feels like it's like going to get a checkup."

The 58-year-old was diagnosed last year, and underwent surgery in September.

The source added that keeping busy with photography work is also helping take his mind off the situation:

"He's just working and hanging with his kids. He's not slowing down at all. He's actually been doing some bigger campaigns and shoots. He wants to keep his mind off of it. His work helps it."

That's awesome! We're glad he's still able to do his work and stay active!

Moreover, the health scare has also brought Joe closer to his children, especially to daughter Jessica Simpson. The source said:

"This had made their relationship stronger. She's been awesome. Jessica was the one he wasn't as close with, and this made them so close. They're all closer because of what he's going through."

Thank goodness he has such a great support system. This is definitely a time of difficulty and the more people surrounding him with love the better.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery!

YASS! Doctors Believe They've Cured Two Infants Of Cancer!

| Filed under: HealthCancerAmazingGIFsViral: News

This is HUGE!

Things have been seeming pretty bleak ever since Donald Trump officially entered office, but this amazing piece of news should at least brighten your day!

British doctors are saying they have cured two infants of cancer!!

According to a report in the Science Translational Medicine magazine, both infants had previously undergone chemo and bone marrow transplants, which didn't work.

But using "designer cells" injected into the babies, ages 11 and 16 months at the time, the T-cells attacked the cancerous cells to basically perform a miracle. Over a year later in remission, and the doctors feel confident enough to say they're leukemia-free!

This is so huge, especially as it marks the first time ever that cancer has been treated with genetically engineered immune cells from a donor!

We're no medical professional, but this sounds like a breakthrough.

We can only hope more research put into this treatment will lead to many more successful cases!!
