    Girl battling leukemia gets standing ovation at Winnipeg Jets game 

    Originally posted on Metro News:

    A day that started with another round of chemotherapy for a seven-year-old Neepawa girl Tuesday couldn’t have ended better for her and her family.

    Alyx Delaloye has been coming to Winnipeg weekly for what’s expected to be more than two years of treatment since being diagnosed with leukemia in July.

    This week’s trip was already looking brighter after the Winnipeg Jets invited the family to watch Tuesday’s game against the Dallas Stars following Alyx’s appointments.

    But the day got even better when Alyx got on the Jumbotron.

    “We knew everyone was cheering for Alyx, but we didn’t know she got a standing ovation and we didn’t know the teams were clapping and banging their sticks on the ice because we were busy watching the Jumbotron,” laughed Alyx’s mom Jody of the experience, which has since spread like wildfire on social media. “We were super excited just to be going to…

    It’s okay, blame them 

    I didn’t do it;

    No doubt about that.

    I wouldn’t do something like that;

    Neither would anyone like me.

    Because we are better,

    Better, especially, than people like you.

    You people do that bad things,

    My people do the good things.

    As long as your people don’t mix with mine,

    Everything will be fine.

    America,

    BREAKING: Awful day in Ohio: Third child dead, a fourth critical after carbon monoxide leak 

    The Associated Press has the story.

    The third of four children exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide from a furnace in a home has died.

    Thirteen-year-old Jakia Jones died on Sunday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

    Her cousins 14-year-old Dionanna Bishop and 13-year-old Dejah Bishop died on Friday after a relative found them unconscious inside a home in Troy, 20 miles north of Dayton in southeast Ohio. Jakia’s 8-year-old brother, Jahari Ward, was in critical condition.

    Preliminary autopsy results released Saturday indicate Dionanna and Dejah, who were sisters, died of carbon monoxide poisoning, the Dayton Daily News reported. Police have said a furnace caused the leak of carbon monoxide, an odorless and colorless gas created when some fuels, such as natural gas, don’t burn completely.

    A relative who found the children and called 911 told police the children had been sick for days. The children lived with their grandmother, who was in a hospital on Friday being treated for pneumonia.

    She’s sent more than $1-million to a man she’s never met 

    Metro UK sorts out this mess.

    She’s never met her African lover, yet this woman has spent $1.4million (£900,000) on him.

    And she has no regrets.

    Sarah, who has divorced twice, met Chris Olsen 18 months ago online and the pair have spoken for hours over the phone every day.

    In that time he has repeatedly asked her for money and, despite his accent changing over that time, she is ’95 per cent certain’ that he’s the real deal.

    Joint birthday party for NY couple married 82 years 

    ajmbroadcasteducator:

    This is awesome

    SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. – A husband and wife thought to be one of the oldest married couples in New York have celebrated their birthdays — and their combined ages will be 212.

    The Journal News reports Duranord Veillard turned 108 on Saturday. His wife, Jeanne Veillard, won’t turn 105 until May.

    The couple celebrated Saturday at the Spring Valley home they share with their daughter.

    Veillard is a native of Haiti who was a judge there.

    He and his wife moved to the United States in 1968, raising five children while he worked as a hospital laboratory technician.

    Though nearly blind and hard of hearing, Veillard still cracks jokes in Creole and does push-ups after getting up before dawn.

    The Veillards have been married 82 years.
