9-Yr-Old With Stage 4 Cancer Meets Newborn Sister. Days Later Parents Look Over And Gasp

Bailey Cooper was just like any other little boy until doctors diagnosed him with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2016. Suddenly his life became full of doctor visits and chemotherapy treatments.

Through it all, the young boy remained positive and cheerful, a ray of sunshine during the terrifying time.

In February 2017, the cancer went into remission. Bailey went back to school and it seemed like life was returning to normal.

Then, over Easter break, the family got the call that the cancer had returned.

Again, Bailey fought valiantly and the cancer went back into remission. The family held onto hope that this time it was for good.

Then, in August, came the heartbreaking blow: the cancer had returned yet again, and this time the prognosis was grim.

“[The consultant] broke the news to us,” said Bailey’s father, Lee. “It was late Stage Four, and it was even worse. It was very aggressive.”

The cancer had spread quickly. Doctors found lumps in Bailey’s chest, lungs, liver, and stomach. They gave him days, maybe weeks, to live.

When Bailey was told the heartbreaking news he was devastated, but he was also determined to live to meet his baby sister, who was due a few months later. The family hoped and prayed he would make it that long.

Amazingly, the little boy proved yet again to be a fighter. In November, he got to hold his newborn sister in his arms. His parents even let him choose her name: Millie.

“He hugged her and did everything an older brother would do — change her, wash her, sing to her,” said Bailey’s mother, Rachel.

Sadly, once Millie was born, Bailey’s strength began to fail. His body grew weaker by the day.

Holding out hope that they would be able to celebrate Christmas together, Bailey’s parents encouraged him to make a list of the gifts he wanted. Showing the same selflessness he’d had throughout his battle, Bailey asked for presents he knew his younger brother, Riley, would enjoy.

Just before Christmas, the extended family came to the house to say their goodbyes. As Bailey’s grandmother cried and told him she wished she could take his place, the young boy admonished her:

“That is really selfish Nan,” he told her. “You have grandchildren to take care of.”


Eventually, the cancer reached Bailey’s brain. After enduring five painful days of radiotherapy, the brave boy told his family he knew it was his time to go.

“I want to stay but it’s my time to go, to become her guardian angel,” Bailey said, speaking of his baby sister.

On December 22, Bailey became unresponsive as the cancer took over his tiny body. His family stayed by his side as he slowly slipped away.

“We sat there hour by hour, watching him slip away,” Rachel said. “We read him stories and listened to his favorite music.

“By 11:45 a.m. on Christmas Eve, we were by his bedside. We knew it was not going to be long. We told him ‘It’s time to go Bailey. Stop.’”

At that moment, a single tear slipped out of Bailey’s eye. He took his final breath and peacefully passed away.

The family is heartbroken he is gone, but said they find comfort knowing he is finally at peace.

“We are numb, but in a way also happy he is no longer in pain,” Lee said.

Now they are determined to follow the wishes of their young son, who was wise beyond his years.

“He told us in our last family meeting: ‘You’re only allowed to cry for 20 minutes,” Rachel said. “You have to take care of Riley and Millie.”

Bailey’s story is a heartbreaking and tragic one, but his courage, strength, and positivity in the face of pain and hardship continue to inspire people around the world. While his family grieves his loss, they know his light and legacy will continue to live on.

Were you touched by Bailey’s courage, positivity, and wisdom? Then share it!

Dad Shocked by Note Furnace Repairman Left On Receipt About Newborn After Emergency Call

Life is full of challenges that cross our path when we least expect them. However, living and surviving means being able to cope with those challenges the best we can. Sometimes a little push from someone is all we need in order to overcome the issues we face, because a small act of kindness can go a long way and restore our faith in humanity.

February 23rd was the day the young parents Jesse and Maria Hulscher welcomed to the world their second baby boy. This made them happy beyond words. They just couldn’t wait to take their son home from hospital and introduce him to his brother and the rest of the family. Since the winter was pretty harsh, they knew they had to make the place warm an cozy for the newborn.

But, they encountered a problem. The furnace in the house stopped working in the middle of the freezing weather, and just before the arrival of Maria and the baby.


Maria Hulscher
Jesse was left alone with his 2-year-old to come up with a quick solution. He was pretty worried because he knew that companies offering repairing services are often very busy and he wasn’t sure whether they could act fast.

“Instantly I panicked,” Jesse said. “I have a two-year-old here, a newborn coming home in a couple days and this was before the big potential snow storm.”

Jesse called Magnuson Sheet Metal to ask them if they could come and fix the furnace before he brought his wife and newborn son home. Jesse’s voice was trembling as he was speaking with the co-owner Craig Aurand who could easily notice that Jesse was in a desperate need of help, so he decided to offer it to the worried father. Just 20 minutes after they spoke on the phone there was someone at the front door. When Jesse opened it he couldn’t believe the staff of Magnuson Sheet Metal could have arrived that quickly.

“He said ‘the fan’s not working, the furnace isn’t working, my wife is in the hospital, we just had a baby yesterday,’” Aurand recalled. “I just said take it easy, we’ll be right there.”

The company repaired the furnace in no time. The heating was on again and now everything was prepared for the big moment.

But, acting quickly and efficiently wasn’t the only thing about the company that stunned Jesse. When he asked for the receipt, he was left in awe once again. Instead of listing the amount of money he should have paid, they left a heartwarming note.

“I opened it up and looked at the receipt and it said, ‘no charge, take care of the new baby,’” Jesse said. While Maria recalled, “I was like, ‘what? No. This can’t be real.’ And he’s like, ‘I know I can’t believe it either.’”

It appeared that Magnuson Sheet Metal was a company known for doing good deeds for people who are in need of their services by not charging families for small jobs which happen on holidays. Things like these make the world a better place.

“We didn’t do it for the PR, we just did it to be good people. That’s it. Just to be nice to these people,” he said. “That’s what this is about.”

A Son And His Old father Had Lunch in a Restaurant, What He Left Behind Made the Entire Restaurant be in Dead Silence


Son Gives Restaurant-Goers A Lesson In Family Duty
A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner.

Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers.
Others diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.

After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.

Whenthey came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that.

The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.

At that time, an old man amongst the diners

called out to the son and asked him, “Don’t you think you have left something behind?”.

The son replied, “No sir, I haven’t”.

The old man retorted, “Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father”.

The restaurant went silent.

To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors. Share this if you agree

Mom Is Stunned When A Flight Attendant Picks Up Her Baby – Now This Is Surprising

Crowded planes and stressed out passengers are, dare I say, normal during holiday travel. But one flight attendant went above and beyond to make this mother’s day, and she couldn’t be more thankful.

Heather Gooch, her husband, and their nine-month-old were travelling after the holiday break. Checking luggage, waiting in line, boarding the plane… It’s all a very stressful situation for parents. Especially new parents, taking their son on his first flight.

The trip may have been nine-month-old Aiden’s first, but it was a very special flight attendant, initially identified as Anisse, that made it unforgettable.

Heather documented the touching experience on her Facebook wall, writing:

“Dear Southwest, I’m hoping you can share this post so that I can be sure that it finds its way to a very special Southwest flight attendant. All I know about her is that her name is Anisse.

My husband and 9 month old son were flying from Fort Lauderdale back home to Islip, NY on 12/28. This was my son’s first trip so we weren’t sure how things would go. Anisse went above and beyond to make sure that the trip went as smoothly as possible.

I have NEVER had a flight attendant as kind and as helpful as she was. My son adored her and kept looking for her as she passed by. At one point, she saw that he was looking for her and getting ancy so she came and picked him up and walked up and down the aisle with him while my husband and I ate our lunch.”

She continues by letting her know how incredibly appreciated the gesture was, and how she simply wants Anisse to know what a kind and wonderful trip it was, due to her.

“Although this may not be a story that stands out from the rest, I wanted to thank her and let her know how appreciated she is. We so often hear about the negative things going on so I wanted to share this story of a someone who made my trip a little brighter. Please help this get to her!”

Heather’s post soon went viral, getting nearly 430,000 likes and 60,000 shares. It also reached the grateful flight attendant, Anissa. She graciously replied to the post, writing:

Also gaining some traction on social media, her reply received quite a few shares as well; nearly 126,000 to be exact. To which she responded:

What a kind-hearted flight attendant and thankful new family. See, good news and happy stories can be shared and appreciated as well! And hey, next time you are sat behind a fussy baby, maybe cut the parents some slack or give them a hand?

Please SHARE this one with your friends and family.

Mom refuses to believe her teenage daughter is pregnant – the doctor’s response is brilliant

As much as our children love us, they aren’t always as open and honest with us as we would like. This is normal, especially in teenagers. Although we give them confidence and the willingness to talk about everything, the truth is that at these ages they prefer to talk to their friends. We may think that we know our children very well, but some of their acts may surprise us a lot.

Unfortunately, sometimes we have to face the facts and admit that our teenagers aren’t really the little angels we think. This hilarious story is exactly about that. A naive mother discovers that her teenage daughter is pregnant but refuses to believe it. So, the doctor arranges a perfect way to make her open her eyes.

It’s impossible not to laugh at the witty answer of the Doctor. Read the anecdote below and brighten up your day!

Mother refuses to believe her teenage daughter is pregnant

“A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor.

The doctor says, “Okay, Mrs. Jones, what’s the problem?”

The mother says, “It’s my daughter Mandy. She keeps getting these cravings, she’s putting on weight and she’s sick most mornings.”

The doctor gives Mandy a good examination, then turns to the mother and says, “Well, I don’t know how to tell you this, but your Mandy is pregnant. About four months, would be my guess.”

The mother says, “Pregnant?! She can’t be, she has never ever been left alone with a man! Have you, Mandy?”

Mandy says, “No mother! I’ve never even kissed a man!”

The doctor walked over to the window and just stares out it. About five minutes pass and finally the mother says, “Is there something wrong out there doctor?”

The doctor replies, “No, not really, it’s just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill. I’ll be darned if I’m going to miss it this time!”

No doubt a perfect answer. Share with your friends and loved ones so they can have a good laugh too!

Man & child fish out 25-yr-old purse from water—when they check its contents, they’re stunned

As they say, if you lose something that’s truly meant to be yours, it’ll come back to you—just like what happened to this woman, who recovered her purse that was stolen 25 years ago!

April Bolt, from South Carolina, never thought she would get her purse back again after it was stolen by thieves in 1992.

Alluding to the day when her purse was stolen, Bolt told ABC News: “I was crying. It wasn’t a whole lot of cash—maybe like $60. But a woman fits her whole life in her purse. It was devastating.”

But as we know, life is full of surprises, and we never know what we’re going to get. Like a needle in a haystack, this purse, containing treasured photos of her baby son, was found at Lake Hartwell in Anderson after 25 years!

On July 4, 2017, Ben Myers was fishing with his 11-year-old nephew, Brodie Brooks, on Lake Hartwell when his nephew caught something big. It seemed like a big catch, and the pair was excited.

Later, as they reeled in a muddied purse from the bottom of the 29-foot-deep lake, their excitement turned into astonishment.

“I get my net, and he gets it to the top of the water. All of a sudden, I see it’s a purse. I said ‘man you ain’t caught no fish, you caught a treasure!’” Myers told Fox Carolina.

At first, Myers thought the purse would be a prize catch, as he excitedly searched through the content. Inside, it contained long-expired credit cards, Clemson University-themed checks, an 80s-90s-style comb, lipstick, and baby photos.

To his surprise, the name on the credit cards, April Bolt, had a familiar ring to it. Then, Myers realized April Bolt is a family friend of his.

“She’s a friend of the family. I went to school with her nephew, but I hadn’t seen her in 10 years,” he told ABC News. “You fish up a purse for one, then you actually know whose it was. It was crazy,” he added.

He contacted Bolt through her nephew. Of course, Bolt was both happy and shocked to receive the incredible news.

“I couldn’t believe it. I was lost for words,” said Bolt. “You never think you’d see it again.”

Bolt cherished the long-lost purse, as it contained her son’s precious baby photos.

“It meant the world to me. My son is 26 now, but he was 15 months then, and I had all his photos that were professionally taken in my wallet. Back then, you didn’t have your cellphone with the pictures. They have water damage but you can make him out,” she said thankfully.

“It’s precious to have all this back,” Bolt told WYFF. “Even in this condition. … I love it.”

The only thing she couldn’t get over was the lipstick. “I remember being upset because my favorite lipstick was in there and the color was discontinued.”

Incredibly, it seems to be true that if you gain something that’s not truly yours, you may lose it in the end. And if you lose something that’s meant to be yours, it may just come back to you one day.

As they say, if it’s meant to be, it will happen. I hope that as many people as possible read this fascinating story. If one share can brighten someone’s day, then it’s worth it.

He asks to buy his dogs back from the shelter. The Woman’s response Is making everyone cry

It was a combination of luck and kindness that led to a joyous reunion between two dogs and the owner who’d been forced to give them up during a hospital stay.

Sometimes you hear a really moving story that just immediately gets you teary-eyed. This is one.

It began when an elderly man from Delaware, USA, had a heart attack in September this year. He luckily survived but was hospitalized and could no longer take care of his two dogs Bailey and Blaze. The dogs were placed in a shelter where they were forced to remain until their master returned to health.

Time passed, but the man (whose name is not published) remained under hospital care. In the end, his dogs could no longer be kept at the shelter and they were put up for adoption…

Read on for his full, moving tale.

But fate was on the man’s side. When he was finally strong enough to leave the hospital, the dogs had luckily not been adopted out yet. He hurried to his dogs to bring them back home.

It was a wonderful reunion. The dogs were overjoyed when they saw their owner again.

But taking them home was not as easy as the man had hoped it would be. The shelter charged him US $250 for ‘adopting’ them back. It was more than he had.

He asked to come back later and sadly returned home again, without his dogs.

A few days later he returned. Unfortunately, he still didn’t have enough money to pay the fees to bring his beloved dogs home. He returned to advise the shelter that he needed more time to arrange to get the money. But this time, the staff had a surprise in store for him.

They had grown concerned about the dogs’ extended separation from their owner, and so they decided to cover the fee themselves. Staff paid out of their own pockets for this to happen, even including dog food and toys in their gift. The man had no idea of their plan, and was shocked when the woman in the shelter informs him that he can at last take Baily and Blaze home.

Below you can see his reaction when he hears the great news. A few minutes later, Bailey and Blaze run out to him. This just made my heart melt.

Now they can finally go home together!

How SWEET!

Grandmother Searches Shelter To Find A Dog That Really Deserves To Be Rescued, This Is What Happened…

When you talk about rescuing a dog, then to most people that means actually rescuing a dog from the rescue centre, not just only looking for a cute puppy.

A dedicated dog rescuer looks for a dog in need of rescuing!

Now, that’s how Melani Andrews and a dog called Jake became forever companions, she went to Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter looking to find a dog to adopt that no one else would adopt.

The shelter said, on their Facebook page:

“This kind woman walked into our shelter and asked who the oldest, hardest to adopt dog was”


Source: Front Street Animal Shelter – The City of Sacramento
Melani really wanted to help a dog, but really she needed help too! The dog in need she was looking for was to hopefully also help her as a companion to help her through hard times and lonely moments.

The Grandmother of 72 had lost her husband shortly before she also lost her Staffordshire terrier, the 72-year-0ld grandmother lost her husband then her Staffordshire terrier who was a great comfort to her after she lost her husband.

Melani Said:

“I was feeling down and a little depressed,”

“My grandkids came over one night, and they said, ‘Grandma, you need somebody to keep you company. You can’t just sit around here all by yourself.”

When she got to the animal shelter she was shown Jake.

“Jake has been with us for a long time, is a senior and has cancer in addition to skin problems,” the shelter wrote on Facebook. “He was getting passed up time and time again. But Melani came to the shelter not just to find a great dog, but to save a life and give unconditional love to a dog in need.”


Source: Melani Andrews
She wasn’t bothered at all about veterinary bills for Jake, even though he was a 12 years aging dog with terminal skin cancer, was deaf and partially blind.

After all this Melani still wanted to shower this dog in need with love.

Melani said:

“Jake’s two friends ignored me, but Jake perked up and started howling,”

“So I said, ‘It looks like he wants to go, and I’ll take him.’”

So had decided to give Jake an awesome good life, during his final weeks after taking him home, and Jake really settled into his new home quickly, he was so happy there!


Source: Melani Andrews
The shelter said:

“As you can see, it’s a match made in heaven,”

“Every day I laugh a little bit more,” Andrews said. “It’s not so lonesome. I think [Jake] knows that I love him because he’ll come over to me and he’ll rub up against me and ask me to rub his backside. And then he’ll nose me with his nose. And a dog that doesn’t know somebody loves him wouldn’t be doing anything like that.”

This is a definite case of who actually rescued who, but above all we’re glad that these two found each other.

Man wakes up with a hangover and a black eye – when he finds his wife’s strange note, he begins to cry

We should never consume too much alcohol. If we drink too much, the chances of doing something we’ll regret later are high! Or, there is another alternative: we forget completely what we’ve done that night, which is even more nerve wrecking.

Today we are going to talk about a married man who was hung over and “lost” memory of what happened the night before.

I found this story earlier today and I just had to share it with you. The man wakes up with a disfigured face, and only remembers fragments of the previous night. What happens next is… well, I won’t spoil the ending for you!

A married man, Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after a night out drinking with the boys.

He doesn’t even remember how he got home from the party.

“Oh, damn,” he thinks to himself, wondering if he did something wrong the night before.

Jack had to force himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the nightstand.

Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed.

He takes the aspirins, and then cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror.

Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick: “Dear husband, last night you came home drunk and made a huge racket. But don’t worry! Breakfast is on the stove. I left early to get groceries to make your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling!
Love, Jillian”

He stumbles into the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee, and the morning newspaper all waiting for him. His son is also at the table, eating.

Jack asks, “Son… what happened last night?”

The truth is revealed
“Well, you came home after three in the morning, drunk and out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you threw up in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”

Confused, he asks his son, “So, why is your mother in such a good mood, and why is there breakfast on the table waiting for me?”

His son replies, “Oh THAT! Well, when Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and tried to take your pants off, you screamed, ’Leave me alone, I’m married! I’m married!’”

Jack was so relieved that he started crying!

Airline passenger shouts at check-in woman – then her 6-word response instantly knocks him down to size

The absolute classic phrase you might have heard is, in the service industry, “The customer is always right”, but as always there are some people out there who prove this wrong!

We all know, those of us who have worked in a service job especially, what this phrase really means, there are some who think that, sadly, they are better than everyone else and insist that they are treated that way, almost like a king or queen, and treat customer service like peasants.

This woman in this story is working at the check-in counter for an airline is not real, but illustrates a really clever way to deal with quite terribly rude people, customers that is! Her retort to a very not so respectful passenger show him his place in a polite and professional way, it also made me howl with laughter!

Go further down this page to read the story and don’t even think twice to share it, the woman retort is completely amazing! The woman at the check-in desk at LaGuardia Airport in New York needs to have a medal for how she dealt with this nasty customer!

Have you ever dealt with an irate customer? This is the one for you guy n gals!

The Southwest Airlines flight, a really busy and full flight was canceled, because of really bad weather, this single agent was re-booking everyone to fly again another time.

Then, all of a sudden a super angry passenger pushed his way to the head of the line…

He slammed his ticket on the table and said rudely:

“I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”

The agent said in reply:

“I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first, and then I’m sure we’ll be able to work something out.”

This passenger was really not impressed at all!

Loudly, he demanded so all the other passengers could hear:

“DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?”

Then the agent smiled and responded in a split-second, by grabbing her public announcement microphone…

She said:

“May I have your attention, please?”

“We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS.”

“If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14.”

The folks who happened to be behind him and hysterical with laughter, the man glared at the woman gritting his teeth…

He said:

“Screw you!”

Without even hesitation the woman said, as she smiled nicely:

“I’m sorry, sir. You’ll have to get in line for that, too.”
