Darian Craig has neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor that affects mostly infants — something she was diagnosed with as a small small child. Against all odds, she BEAT the 15% chance she had of surviving!
Sadly, that wasn't the only problem: she spent the next 14 years of her life in and out of emergency rooms battling Behcet's syndrome, a rare disorder that causes blood vessels to become inflamed! Not only did she have to have radiation treatments, but she had to have chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant as well. She is one HELL of a fighter.
She was then diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare blood and bone marrow failure disorder, after she had beaten everything else. She was going to need a lot of help to beat this, and they found the perfect match to do it — Evander Holyfield Jr.! You might know his dad, the boxer and champion?

Is there anything weed can't do?? LOLz!
Of course there is — it certainly doesn't make you a better driver. But according to new science, it CAN help stop metastasis in aggressive cancers!
We're not sure you're understanding the gravity of this: the compound derived from marijuana could stop metastasis, potentially altering the fatality of the disease forever.

We know this little cutie and her mama are EXTRA thankful to the Denver Zoo!
Rinny, the mama tapir, had just given birth to her baby boy…but the happy moment turned desperate afterwards.
The babe was trapped in Rinny's amniotic sac, and she tried and tried to free her son to no avail.
That's when curator Rebecca McCloskey and veterinarian Gwen Jankowski literally LEAPED into the tapir area and began tearing away the sac.
