Boy And Miniature Horse Bond Over Shared Disability

Filed under: InspirationHealthCuteness!Horses

A young boy and a miniature horse bonded over their mutual disability!

Awwww! That's so insanely cute!

Tyler Cribbs is a young boy with a disability.

He needs to use braces to be able to stand and walk around.

Tyler has found a friend and some common ground in Judd, a miniature horse born at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) in Grantville, PA.

The two month old horsie sadly has a condition similar to Tyler's that causes him to need splints to support his own weight.

The association normally offers horseback riding as therapy for patients with disabilities, but it's different with lil Judd.

Sad! NJ Doctor Killed In Murder Suicide!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooR.I.P.Sad SadHealth

nj new jersey doctor murder suicide sad awful tragic violence

Dark things happen in this world, and we really wish that was never the case. We hope there's a solution out there somewhere, because we refuse to believe that something like this is just a way of life.

Christopher Liggio of NJ fatally shot his wife Michelle, a beloved family doctor, at her medical office in Pennsauken. He then took his own life, because he is a coward who took something that was NOT his to take.

Rat Kidney Produced In Lab May Lead To Eventual Human Transplants

Filed under: HealthBodyScience!Rat

ratkidney

Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.

THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!

When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!

Normally rat urine isn't very exciting, but this could be a first step towards creating replacement organs for folks who suffer from kidney diseases.
