Now this is the way to spend an eight-month anniversary of your bone marrow transplant victory — a standing ovation while accepting an award on behalf of your ABC program at the 72nd annual George Foster Peabody Awards at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City!
Such a beautiful moment for Robin Roberts!
When she took the stage to accept the award, she said this:
Zach Sobiech was just a normal 14-year-old teenager living in Minnesota when his doctors diagnosed him with osteosarcoma - a rare form of bone cancer.
After a long fight with the cancer, doctors told Zach he only had a few months to live. Zach turned to music and recorded a song called Clouds, a song about dealing with death, which has since gone viral and has been viewed by over three million fans!
So it is with a heavy heart that we bear the sad news that Zach passed away on Monday morning. He was 18 years old.
Here's what the Children's Cancer Research Fund said in a statement:
Just because you're a professional motorcycle and snowmobile racer doesn't mean that you can't revolutionize the world of prosthetics with an invention that will game-change the world of artificial joints! No biggie!
Mike Shultz has been in the X Games 11 times, but he has a special place in his heart for the lab! He has NO mechanical training and NO engineering background, but he has more motivation that anyone else! You see, he lost his left leg above the knee in December 2008 snowmobiling accident.
So he invented the Moto Knee and Versa Foot, to create a prosthetic leg for athletes to use in extreme sports — and it's blowing minds!
Being bipolar is actually brutally common in the world, yet it carries with it a stigma that people just can't shake. Just because it's common, though, doesn't mean it should be taken lightly. We're glad Catherine Zeta-Jones isn't riding it out… and has taken it upon herself to be very proactive with her diagnosis!
We're happy to hear that she has returned home after another round of treatment for the mental affliction!
Galas aren't just for actors and musicians! They're for athletes too!!
Last night marked the 28th annual Sports Spectacular Gala held in Century City, California, and some of the BIGGEST names in sports came out to play!
The night featured a memorial for the late Los Angeles Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss as well as an award ceremony for athletes such as US soccer superstar Hope Solo and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul!
But the real guest of honor was none other than Jason Collins, who earned the title of Inspirational Athlete of the year for his decision to become the first active player to come out as openly gay in a major U.S. sport!
