Seriously Ill Child's Family Persuades Pharmaceutical Company To Share Experimental Drug With Them!

seriously ill childs family persuades pharmaceutical company to share experimental drug with them

We just hope this olive branch extended by the pharmaceutical company isn't too little, too late.

From what we know about Josh Hardy though — the kid is a fighter!

Josh was diagnosed with a rare kind of kidney cancer when he was just nine months old, but he eventually beat it. He went on to beat cancer again when it showed up in his thymus, lung, and bone marrow. However, a bone marrow transplant left Josh, now 7-years-old, fighting for his life against a deadly adenovirus.

Since Josh had tried various treatments that didn't work, his family, according to the FDA, was legally allowed to ask pharmaceutical companies for life-saving experimental drugs - which Josh's family did with Chimerix, who initially

Sarah Harding Admits To Getting Lip Fillers!

sarah-harding-admits-to-getting-lip-fillers

We give her a lot of credit!

It's never easy to admit to getting work done - especially when it doesn't go as you hoped it would!

Former Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding recently revealed that she had lip fillers put in before her wedding day, but was mortified with the results after she had a bad reaction to the 'enhancement!'

She explains:

‘It’s not something I’m going to be trying again, or anything I would recommend to anyone else. But, yeah, around Christmas I got a little bit experimental and decided to have some filler in my lips. Clearly that was a mistake. I was silly, it was a very silly thing to do. Thankfully they have gone back down now. It was a case of approaching my thirties and not feeling confident about that. It was something that was on my mind a lot. No Botox, thank you very much.’

Understandable! We imagine a lot of ladies have the same kind of insecurities about hitting the big 3-0!

But we hope you stay true to your word and stay away from that stuff from now on!

You look FABULOUS, just as you are now!

Thanks for being so candid, gurl!

Björk Is BACK! Announces New Album, Tour Dates!

Filed under: Music MinuteBjork

bjork-announces-tour-dates-new-album-biophilia

Well, it's about time! No one can blow our minds the way she does, and this sounds like no exception!

Björk has kept a pretty low profile since her 2007 album, Volta, but gurlfriend has just announced that there's a whole lot more of her coming our way!

The Icelandic singer not only has revealed that she'll be performing a series of show's as a part of this year's Manchester International Festival, but also that she has a new album in the works called, Biophilia, set to be released sometime in 2011!

According a press release, Biophilia is being described as "a multi-media project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows" with instruments like "a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth's gravitational pull to create musical patterns– creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp."

Holy shiz. This sounds pretty ambitious - just how we like her!

Can't wait to be entranced all over again, gurl!

And check out her new tour dates…AFTER THE JUMP!
