This is so incredible! Our hearts are so warm we feel like we could burst into flames of joy!

So, when Caleb saw Ricochet the surfing dog online, and asked if he could surf with the pooch, they made sure to make it happen.

And they did just that!

Because of a tumor on his spine, Caleb

kathy bates cancer battle breast ovarian

It's breast cancer awareness month, and we are SO inspired by what we've seen from the month-long reminder so far! Everyone is very focused on getting out a message to those who need to know more about the subject, and we're very happy to hear from Kathy Bates about her struggles with cancer — and how it's a huge part of her family!

In 2003, Kathy had ovarian cancer, which she beat. Last year, they found a tumor in her breast, so she had a double mastectomy. She does what it takes to keep herself healthy and cancer free, even though apparently it runs rampant in her family!

Here's what she said:

Baby Koala Rescued From Power Lines!

Filed under: Cuteness!RescueAmazingKoala

Baby Koala rescued from power lines!!

Kai is a tiny, super cute baby koala bear!!

Kai was hanging out with her mama in Australia's Hunter Valley when the mom lost the use of her right foot.

The pair were stuck up a tree, dangerously close to some power lines.

Luckily, the Australian power company Ausgrid sent in a crew to safely get the koalas out of there!

Turns out Kai's mom couldn't move her leg because of a tumor!!

It's a good thing they were both sent to the vet after so the mama could be healed up and little Kai could get her front pawsies all bandaged up.

Ahhh! She's so insanely cute, especially with her little bandages.

So glad she's okay now! Way to go, Ausgrid!

Dr. Drew Reveals He's A Prostate Cancer Survivor!

Filed under: Dr. DrewHealthAdviceCancer

Dr. Drew had his prostate removed but now he's cancer-free!!

We can't believe he kept this a secret!

Dr. Drew Pinsky has such an amazing story to tell and we're so happy he's sharing his knowledge with the world.

He helps so many people, so we're glad that there were some seriously brilliant doctors there for him when he needed it.

Dr. Drew just recently revealed that he suffered from prostate cancer and thankfully after a radical robotic prostatectomy earlier this year, he's cancer free!

He said:

"While many of you were celebrating the Fourth of July, I was at home on my couch recovering from a radical robotic prostatectomy. Four hours of surgery had left me in great pain, without an appetite, and in need of help from my college-age son, Jordan, to get up and lie down. But I was cancer-free for the first time in at least two years."

He wrote a personal blog post to tell his story.

Dr. Drew wanted people to hear about it directly from him, not from the media or anyone else.

He also wanted to raise awareness of the disease, saying:

Yuck! Teen Has Hairy Eye Tumor Removed! Photos!!!

Filed under: TeensHealth

Hairy Eye Tumor 1

We've def done our share of shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted hair. But what if there was hair growing out of your eyeball?! Ew!

Well, according to the New England Journal of Medicine, that's just what a teenager in Iran had to deal with, thanks to a rare type of tumor!

Surgeons were able to remove the mass without complications, thank goodness!

According to the report, the limbal dermoid — latin for major grossout — didn't actually cause the young man any pain. He just wanted it removed for "cosmetic reasons."

No pain? What about the symptom of throwing up every time you look in the mirror!

We'd feel bad for the guy, but hey- it's out now! The kid's going to be fine!

Of course we have the UNCENSORED pics, but be warned! They are pretty graphic! Ch-ch-check 'em out AFTER THE JUMP!
