Matt Kemp Lifts The Spirits of a Dying Fan

Say what you want about Matt Kemp.  I don’t care if you are a big-time Dodger fan and LOVE him or if you hate the Dodgers and, as a result, you can’t like him.  I don’t even care if you don’t follow pro baseball and you don’t even know who he is.  But, to ME, Matt Kemp just made it to my “One of the Good Guys” list!!  Watch this video and you will see what I mean.  This happened earlier this season, right after losing to the San Francisco Giants IN San Francisco.  Although you won’t see it in this video, let me give you a little bit of the back story:  The Dodgers 3rd base coach told Kemp that there was a young man there who was a huge Matt Kemp fan that had only a few months to live.  So, after the game, Kemp went over to the fan to sign a baseball for him.  But, while he was there, Kemp said that something came over to him.  He did not have any idea that this was being filmed (and, afterwards, was a little embarrassed by the attention as this was meant to be just something between him and the fan).  But, after giving him his signed baseball, watch what else he does.  What a classy person!!  Whether you are a Dodger fan or not, you can’t help but want to root for Matt Kemp after seeing this video!!

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Little Girl’s Wish Comes True at Disneyland

You’ll enjoy watching this little girl’s wish…and, especially seeing that wishes DO come true.  I know that I sure liked it.  This little girl’s wish is something that she didn’t dare think could really come true.  She is truly a “Daddy’s Girl” and she missed her Daddy terribly as he was away, serving his country in Afghanistan.  Her mother took her to Disneyland.  Snow White asked her what her greatest wish was.  She even had her cover her eyes as she made her wish.  That was when the “magic” happened and you get to see this little girl’s wish come true…at the Happiest Place on Earth!!  Enjoy!!  I’m sorry that we couldn’t get the other video we found to work for us.  It showed her talking to her mom a few weeks or months earlier, almost in tears about how much she missed her Daddy, hugging a doll with his face on it.  But, we still get to see the reunion with this clip.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Fighting Cancer with HIV

 

Fighting cancer with HIV?  Really?  Who would ever think that you could successfully fight one fatal disease by attacking it with another one?  Up until now, I have always thought of HIV as nothing but bad news.  However, today’s post for “ALittleGoodNews.com” makes you think differently.  This was sent to us by one of our subscribers (or, as we like to call them, one of our “GoodNewsians”), Susan B.  THANK YOU, Susan B., for taking the time to let us know about this amazing discovery.  Isn’t it great how some very smart people can take something so bad and turn it into something that does so much good?  As you will see in the video, they are not only hypothesizing about fighting cancer with HIV.  They are actually doing it….in fact, they are not only fighting cancer with HIV, but they are starting to WIN!!  Let’s hear it for the “good guys”.  And, before you worry about the patients possibly getting aids from this, watch the video!!  I hope that the story continues to get better and better, too.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Mystery Priest Blesses Woman…then Disappears

A mystery priest appears out of nowhere, blesses a woman who was asking for a prayer after being in a terrible accident, then just as mysteriously disappears.  A “Thank You” goes out to one of our “ALittleGoodNews.com” subscribers, Phyllis C.  She sent this bit of “good news” in to us, suggesting that we put it on our site for others to see.  Sometimes, the “LittleGoodNews” that happens around us comes from places and people we may never really understand.  But, this mystery priest certainly showed up at just the right time, helping both the woman AND the rescue workers feel much better and more calm.  You will see in the video that there didn’t seem to be a way for him to just appear and then disappear (as they had the road blocked off for quite a ways).  Whether it is a mystery priest, a stranger, a pet or even a friend or family member….GOOD NEWS is happening all around us.  Let’s notice it.  Let’s share it….and most of all, LET’S BE IT!!

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

5 Year Old Boy with Cancer Scores TD for Browns

I hate to see little children suffer.  For this reason, I get especially excited when I see people and organizations do whatever they can to help ease their suffering and/or bring some happiness into their lives.  This past weekend, that is EXACTLY what the Cleveland Browns did.  Ryan Encinas is a 5 year old boy with cancer who was diagnosed with lung cancer when he was two and has been fighting it ever since.  He is one tough kid. He has been cancer free for two years and now, thanks to the Little Heroes program and the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, he is the first ever 5 year old boy with cancer to score a touchdown against a professional football team.  Whether you are a football fan or not, you can’t help become a fan of the Browns for doing something like this to brighten the life of this young boy with cancer who hasn’t even started kindergarten yet!!  It is neat to see the entire team and organization come onto the field during his touchdown run, cheering him on.  Go, Browns!!…and, more importantly, GO, RYAN!!
