Everyone gets pimples now and then. It’s just a part of life. Generally they go away on their own, but sometimes they can be a little more finicky. For 21-year-old New Zealand teacher Emily Foreman, what she thought was a run-of-the-mill pimple ended up changing the course of her life forever.
After a few months of the pesky pimple-like bump behind her ear, Foreman went to the doctor to get it looked at. A series of scans gave her the tragic diagnosis of a cancer tumor, called a large cell undifferentiated carcinoma, in her main salivary gland. It had also spread to some of Foreman’s surrounding lymphnodes. The young woman underwent a six-hour surgery to try and remove the cancer.
“This was to remove the entirety of my parotid gland, as well as most of the lymph nodes and some of the surrounding tissue in my neck,” Foreman explained on her Give A Little donation page, which is similar to GoFundMe. “To ensure that they had removed all of the cancer they needed to take some of my main facial nerve, unfortunately this left the right side of my face paralysed.”
Foreman then underwent six weeks of radiation, and after a while she was finally able to get back to her regular life. She was working full time and trying to plan out her future, but a routine check up left her devastated once again.
“In the CT scan they had discovered multiple lesions across both my lungs; meaning the cancer had spread,” she recalled. “There was always that chance of the cancer coming back, but never in a million years did I expect this, or for it to happen so soon. This changed everything. I was then put under one of the best oncologist’s and we were thrown straight into coming up with our next plan of attack. Because the lesions were so small and spread across both my lungs surgery wasn’t an option, we were also unable to do radiation as this would damage my lungs too much.”
So what was her next option? Foreman’s doctor decided the best course of action was to monitor the lesions to see if there were any changes. If they began to change, then she would have to undergo chemotherapy. The lesions didn’t appear to be changing, which meant that Foreman’s immune system was fighting hard to keep the cancer at bay.
“After much consideration, [the doctor] decided to offer me immunotherapy, believing that this would have better results than the chemotherapy would,” Foreman shared. “Immunotherapy works in conjunction with and helps to support the immune system to find and target cancer cells. But for me to be able to have this immunotherapy and for it to work I needed to have a high enough level of a certain protein within my cancer cells. After some testing we were fortunate and so grateful to find out that this is going to be an option for me and probably my best option.”
The issue, though, is that this treatment is extremely expensive and not covered under New Zealand healthcare.
“Each treatment is done every three weeks down in Palmerston North at a cost of $6,000 and it is capped at 10 treatments,” wrote on her Give A Little page. “This means that we only have to pay for the first 10 treatments; that still leaves it costing around $60,000. Then every treatment after the 10th one we only have to pay the administration fee which is still around $700 every time. All in all this is going to be a rather costly experience.”
This treatment could last for years if it’s deemed effective, which means Foreman will be struggling with these costs for the foreseeable future. However, she notes that this isn’t a cure by any stretch.
“Now the immunotherapy is not a cure, and will not cure me; currently there is no cure,” Foreman pointed out. “But it should be able to prevent the lesions from growing and keep them at bay for as long as possible. Medicine is changing all the time and I am hopeful that one day there will be a cure but currently this is my best chance at keeping the cancer at bay until that cure is found.”
I can’t imagine thinking something is just a pimple, then receiving life-changing news like this. Foreman seems to have a good head on her shoulders, and she has already raised over $50,000 on her fundraising page.
Her story is an important reminder to be vigilant when it comes to growths, bumps, or anything else unusual you notice about your body.
A mom in Ohio is looking for justice after her two-month-old baby died in the home of her daycare provider. Taylor Bush dropped off her daughter, Di’Yanni Griffin, at Nana’s Home Daycare along with her sons. When Bush texted the daycare owner, Danielle Townsend, to say she was coming to pick up her kids, Townsend said she wasn’t at the daycare, but her sister was there watching the kids.
When Bush showed up, the sister answered the door and was holding Di’Yanni.
“I knock on the door, go in there — she told me my baby was breathing heavy,” Bush said. “I say, ‘Why didn’t you call?’ She had no answer.”
Bush lives in the unit above the daycare, so she took DiYanni and went upstairs, only to realize something awful.
“So I go to walk out the door and I close the door behind me so I’m like, ‘Hey, mama baby.’ I realize her neck is, just she’s just lifeless,” Bush told Fox 8.
Bush then went back to the daycare, where she tried to save her daughter.
“So, I’m like, ‘Can you help with CPR?’ She’s not helping. So, I immediately put my daughter on the ground, so I give her CPR, and while I’m doing that, I call 911,” said Bush.
While doing CPR, Bush recalled that the sister kept trying to call Townsend instead of helping dave Di’Yanni.
“Why aren’t you trying to call police?” Bush thought at the time.
Di’Yanni was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late to do anything for her.
“They could not find a pulse for my daughter at all. I begged them — the hospital — to keep working on her because they had already pronounced her dead,” Bush said. “I begged them to keep working on my baby, because I couldn’t cope with the words, ‘She was gone.'”
It was then that Bush was given the news that made her heart sink.
“They told me about how cold my daughter was that she had stopped breathing a long time ago,” she said.
As for Townsend, who has been working with kids for 15 years, she said that her sister did notice something was wrong before Bush picked up Di’Yanni.
“My sister calls me and says, ‘Call her mother,'” recalled Townsend. “I said, ‘Well, her mother just texted me; what’s wrong?’ She said, ‘The baby is breathing fast.”
When Bush went to pick up her sons after leaving the hospital, she was upset with the way the daycare handled the situation.
“They showed no remorse, no apologies, not anything, no ‘sorry for your loss,’ no condolences,” she said.
Representatives from the daycare began posting on social media that Di’Yanni was ill, but police have said the coroner thinks the baby died of natural causes. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services said they are monitoring the situation and will determine of the daycare license should be suspended.
“ODJFS is monitoring this tragic situation very closely. County JFS agencies are responsible for inspections of in-home child care, with oversight of ODJFS,” the spokesperson said. “The county agency is conducting an investigation and actively working with child protective services and law enforcement. ODJFS would make the final determination on whether to suspend Nana’s Home Daycare license if the county agency recommends suspension.”
As for Bush, she’s now left heartbroken after the death of her daughter. She said she had prayed to one day have a little girl, and now that dream is broken.
“I’m hurt. I blame myself,” the grieving mother said. “I don’t know how to cope, honestly I don’t. I’ve never dealt with anything like this before … I’m just broken, I’m broken.”
I can’t even imagine what Bush is going through right now. I hope she is able to get answers for the death of her baby girl.
Do you think the daycare should be shut down?
You’d like to think that ultimately, good conquers evil. Sometimes you have to do something that’s not right in order to prove that something else wrong is happening, and you want to believe that your bad thing would then get overlooked. Unfortunately, that’s not always the way the world works, and sometimes you learn the hard way that the world isn’t fair.
Take, for example, Brianna Cooper, an 11-year-old girl from Florida who was suspended for five days after she recorded her teacher saying nasty things about another student in the class. Cooper had been witnessing the bullying for a while, but she knew that if she didn’t have proof, no one would believe her.
“You think that they would actually believe a student over a teacher,” Brianna said, explaining her rationale behind recording the situation.
She decided to use her cellphone to record what her teacher was saying and prove that she was being a bully. Brianna took the recording to another teacher, and not long after she was called to the principal’s office to let her know what she did was illegal. As it turns out, in Florida you cannot record a teacher without their consent.
Florida law states:
Florida makes it a crime to intercept or record a “wire, oral, or electronic communication” in Florida, unless all parties to the communication consent.
Florida law makes an exception for in-person communications when the parties do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in the conversation, such as when they are engaged in conversation in a public place where they might reasonably be overheard.
“I thought I did the right thing,” Brianna said. “I never had anybody tell me I couldn’t record.”
The comments made by the teacher towards another student were appalling.
“Biggest kid in 5th grade and you’re acting like the smallest one” the teacher can be heard saying. “I wonder what your mom looks like. Don’t let the size fool you. I will drop you. You don’t know me. That’s all I’m telling you. So don’t give me no look.”
Brianna’s mom, Cassie Faulkner, was upset when she heard about not only the comments, but also her daughter’s suspension from school.
“You don’t speak to children, let alone your students like that,” Cassie said. “She thought she was doing a good thing. She’s 11 years old. She doesn’t know the law. You’re pretty much saying to students, ‘If you think anything is wrong, don’t try and do anything about it.'”
The school didn’t comment on the suspension of Brianna, but they did acknowledge the comments made by their teacher.
“The staff at Sam Gaines Academy investigated the incident involving unprofessional behavior by the teacher and took swift, appropriate action,” the school said. “The teacher was dismissed and no longer works for the school system.”
To me, this is a case of school’s protecting their teachers ahead of their students, which shouldn’t be the case. Despite the school firing that teacher, they still suspended a student for a full week just for reporting an unsafe environment. I understand there are laws, but should they not be ignored when the safety of children is involved?
What do you think of this situation?
Stories like this always aggravate me, because they remind me that the school system is more concerned about money than the well-being of their students. Bonnie Kimball, who operated the cash register at Mascoma Valley Regional High School, was fired from her position at the school after she let a student take his lunch without paying because he didn’t have any money left in his lunch account.
Kimball loved her job at the school, where she got to talk to the school’s 326 students about life, their problems, and the general happenings of their day.
“We didn’t even call it work,” Kimball said of working at the school. “We got up in the morning, we took care of our families and we went to take care of the kids.”
On March 28th, a student came in to the line with a tray of food, but Kimball noticed he didn’t have any money left in his account. Instead of having the student go hungry for the day, Kimball let him take the food with a promise to bring the money. Unfortunately, there happened to be a district manager for Cafe Services, the company who runs the school’s cafeteria.
“When I rang him up, the student didn’t have any money on their account,” Kimball said. “So, I have a district manager here, my boss has told me ‘Don’t cause any scenes with the contract’ and I quietly said ‘tell (your) mom you need money.’”
The next day, Kimball was called in to the manager’s office and was fired. The reasoning? They claimed that she had “stolen” the food from the company. She was escorted out of the building.
“It was my life for five years. I went and I took care of another family,” she said. “You don’t just lose a family member, be OK and move on.”
Two fellow co-workers were so upset with Kimball’s termination, they quit their jobs on the spot. Parents of some students have also voice displeasure with the way the school and cafe company handled the situation.
“These guys really took care of our kids. They put our kids first and their focus was really our kids,” said Christina Moodie, whose son attends the high school. I know Bonnie went above and beyond for the kids.”
Cafe Services hasn’t responded to requests for comment on the situation, but in their termination letter to Kimball, they made their point very clear.
“On March 28, a District manager was on-site and witnessed a student coming through the line with multiple food items that you did not charge him for,” said the letter, which Kimball shared with the Valley News. “This is a strict violation of our Cash Handling Procedures, the Schools Charge Policy and Federal Regulation governing free meals.”
Kimball is now out of work, and she’s concerned that this mark on her record could ultimately affect her job search in the future.
“I’m just dealing with so much right now: the public, paperwork. One minute I’m mad and the next minute, I just want to forget it all happened,” she said. “I guess I’m mourning my job.”
She says, however, that it’s not the school district’s fault, and that the officials from the board have been supportive and encouraging during this situation. Cookie Hebert, chairman of Mascoma Valley Regional School Board, wouldn’t comment directly on Kimball’s situation, but she did say that Kimball was just following the rules set out by the district.
“The policy is that the student be fed,” Hebert said. “There’s no refusal.”
After the story went viral, the company offered Kimball her job back, saying they would pay her for the work she missed.
“We had a recent situation where an employee violated school and company policy in dealing with our food service and our district manager made a decision he felt was right at the time,” said Brian Stone, president of the company’s school division.
Amanda Isabelle, the district superintendent, also said the school would hire Kimball back.
“The events of these past few weeks and the feedback I have received from parents has given me considerable pause,” Isabelle said in the statement. “As a school district, we understand the importance of rules and procedures, but upon reflection, I have become sufficiently convinced that it is wrong of us to assume that all the responsibility falls to the vendor, and I do not believe our communities would accept that explanation of this situation. We must be accountable for the people who work in our schools.”
Despite the offer, the former lunch lady won’t be returning.
“They’re not doing it for me, they are doing it to save face,” Kimball noted.
Personally, I think it’s ridiculous for a company to fire Kimball because she was allowing a student to eat, especially because the parent did pay the $8 for the food. Sometimes, politics need to be put aside and the well-being of our kids needs to be the focus.

Tori Spelling, daughter of Aaron Spelling and star of Beverly Hills, 90210, has had her share of hardships in her life. After her father died, it was expected that Tori was to inherit a large part of his $500 million fortune. However, because of the estranged relationship between Tori and her mother, the actress was handed $800,000 and nothing more. Tori has had financial problems ever since.
“It’s no mystery why I have money problems,” Tori wrote in one of her books. “I grew up rich beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes. Even when my tastes aren’t fancy, they’re still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way.”
Tori’s financial issues are not her only problems, either. In 2014 the actress was admitted to the hospital for an “Ebola scare,” but sources close to Tori say it was actually a nervous breakdown.
Her friends claimed Tori was faking illness to the point where she actually made herself sick, was fighting with her husband constantly, and was freaking out about her money troubles. They said the “Ebola scare” was just a way to cover up the mental health issues. One friend said that an intervention was being planned.
“I am hoping that shedding some light on it for all of her fans to read may actually lead her to seek some change in her life,” the friend told TMZ. “Kind of like David Hasselhoff watching the drunk video of himself eating a hamburger.”
Since the hospital visit four years ago, the mom of five seemed relatively level-headed and steady in her life. However, police are currently being dispatched to her home for a potentially serious reason.
Billy Graham, one of the world’s most famous Christian ministers, has passed away at age 99.
A spokesman for the reverend’s Evangelistic Association said Graham died at his mountaintop cabin in Montreat, North Carolina on Wednesday morning.
A representative for his son Franklin’s organization, Samaritan’s Purse, reported that Graham was surrounded by family when he died just before 8 a.m.
While a cause of death was not reported immediately, Ted Shearer of DeMoss Associates told Fox News the reverend had died from natural causes.
Graham had been ill and withdrawn from the public eye for many years now. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1992, and hospitalized for pneumonia in 2011.
Graham spoke before his last revival meeting in New York in 2005, at age 86.
Born on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Caroline, Graham was drawn to preaching at age 16, when he listened to a traveling evangelist.
He was ordained in 1939, and went on to become one of the world’s most popular and well-known Christian ministers.
His Evangelistic Association estimates that Graham personally preached to more than 210 million people in 185 countries, with millions more receiving message of faith in magazines, radio programs, Christian television broadcasts, and over the internet.
Condolences and celebration for Graham have poured in from around the world following news of his death, including from the president and vice president.
Picking your nose is seen as a gross habit around the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s rare.
In a survey, 96% of teenagers admit to digging for gold regularly, while a surprising 90% of adults say they do it too.
In fact, the average person cleans out the attic four times a day, even if they’re in the 10% that won’t admit to it.
But that may not be a bad thing. While it’s certainly bad table manners to pick your nose in front of friends and family, research says there are health benefits to burrowing for boogies.
The only downside is you need to eat what you find to get those health benefits.
It’s gross but true, according to biochemist Scott Napper. He says humans may have actually evolved to eat their boogers because the little nuggets are so good for us.
“I’ve got two beautiful daughters and they spend an amazing amount of time with their fingers up their nose,” he told the CBC.
“And without fail, it goes right into their mouth afterwards. Could they just be fulfilling what we’re truly meant to do?”
If you’re feeling skeptical – or nauseous – just wait until you learn what boogers can do for your body.
Millions of people across the country could see their monthly food stamps shrink if President Trump’s administration gets its way.
As part of their 2019 budget, the government unveiled a surprising plan to replace some benefits with a “Blue Apron-type” home delivery program.
Currently, food stamp recipients can use an electronic benefits card (EBT) to buy food at grocery stores.
If the new program is approved, it would replace some monthly benefits with a box of food delivered to the recipient’s door.
The program, currently named “America’s Harvest Box,” would include non-perishable foods like rice, pasta, and canned goods.
The program was developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the proposal says that all food included in the boxes would be locally grown or sourced.
Sonny Perdue, the Secretary of Agriculture, calls the plan an “innovative approach to providing nutritious food to people who need assistance feeding themselves and their families – and all of it is home grown by American farmers and producers.”
Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget Director, compared the plan to Blue Apron, a subscription service that mails fresh ingredients to customers each week.
But some people are already skeptical about the new plan.
A few years ago, our alarm system went off in the middle of the night. The siren blared and it woke us all from a dead sleep. We didn’t know what to do. Was someone in the house? Were they going to hurt us? Do we call the police before we do anything else?
My dad, perhaps ill-advisedly, grabbed the largest knife from the knife block and went to the basement where there was a presumed intruder. He was ready to attack if the situation warranted it. Instead, he found our cat who had chewed through the wires. Oops.
We may not have actually been in danger, but I can tell you that the last thing on anyone’s mind was befriending the person we thought was trying to rob our home. My dad was ready to attack whoever was breaking in, and the rest of us were ready to help if necessary.
Leah Ross initially had the same reaction, terror, but then she realized there was a better option to fear: compassion.
The Trump family is on high alert after Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was exposed to a “white powder” at her home.
According to police, Vanessa Trump was at the family’s Manhattan apartment when she opened a letter addressed to her husband. A white powder was inside the envelope, which prompted immediate concern. Mrs. Trump called 911, telling dispatchers she was “coughing and felt nauseous.”
Both the New York Police Department’s intelligence department and Secret Service agents were investigating the incident.
“The Secret Service and our law enforcement partners in New York City are investigating a suspicious package addressed to one of our protectees received today in New York, New York. This is an active investigation and we cannot comment any further,” Secret Service Special Agent Jeffrey Adams said in a statement.
Both Vanessa Trump and two other unidentified individuals were decontaminated by firefighters at the scene. Vanessa was taken to hospital as a precaution.
After extensive testing, it was confirmed that the substance was non-hazardous. However, more testing will be conducted at a lab in New York City to identify what exactly it was. Vanessa and Donald Jr. share five children together, none of whom were at home at the time of the incident.
This is not the first time the Trumps have been sent mysterious powders, either. In March of 2016, Eric Trump was mailed an envelope with white powder that was later found to be harmless. That same year, envelopes containing white powder were sent to Trump Tower, which was serving as Trump’s campaign headquarters.
Police are still investigating the incident, trying to track down who sent the powder.
If you’ve ever worked as a server or anyone else who depends on tips to supplement your wages, then you know how frustrating it can be when customers either under tip or don’t tip at all. Servers make less than minimum wage with the assumption that their tips will make up the difference, but Tamlynn Yoder will tell you this isn’t always the case.
Yoder, a 25-year-old resident of Lake Park, Florida, learned the hard way that tipping isn’t guaranteed, but that you can’t just go off about it. Yoder worked at an Outback Steakouse when an order came in from Christ Fellowship church. The church ordered 25 steaks, 25 chickens, and 25 potatoes on a Wednesday morning for pickup.
“We take the order over the phone, we put the order together, take payment and then take order to the car,” Yoder said. “It’s a lot of work just as much as serving.”
The takeout order totaled $735, and when someone from Christ Fellowship came to pick up the order, that’s exactly how much money Yoder and her coworkers received. No tip was left, despite spending most of the day preparing the 75-item order. Yoder says she only ended up with $18 in tips for the entire day because Christ Fellowship placed such a large order and didn’t leave a gratuity.
“Tips [are] how we make our money, we still make a low wage as servers,” Yoder said.
But even though it’s not her fault that the church didn’t leave a tip, Yoder was still fired from her position at Outback the next day. That’s because it wasn’t the lack of tip that got the server fired, it was her complaints about it.
If you followed figure skating in the 1980s, you’ll remember that Scott Hamilton was one of the sport’s toughest competitors.
Not only did he win Olympic bronze and gold medals back to back in 1980 and 1984, Hamilton was also both the World Figure Skating Champion and the National Champion for four years in a row.
But longtime fans will know Hamilton has faced his toughest challenge off the ice. The Olympian has been plagued by cancer diagnoses multiple times, including multiple brain tumors.
“I have a unique hobby of collecting life-threatening illness,” Hamilton told People about his most recent case in 2016. “It’s six years later, and it decided that it wanted an encore.”
Hamilton’s health troubles actually began when he was just two years old. He mysteriously stopped growing and had trouble digesting food. Figure skating actually helped improve his condition, but to this day Hamilton is only 5’3″.
Then, in 1997, he received the tragic news that he had testicular cancer. Doctors told Hamilton he had actually been born with the disease, meaning he won his Olympic medals while living with cancer.
While Hamilton’s tumor was treated with chemotherapy and surgery, that was the beginning, not the end, of his health crisis.
L.L. Bean has been an American institution for over a century. The outdoor retailer has long provided customers with excellent customer service and products that come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
They also have this incredible Bootmobile.
L.L. Bean is perhaps most well-known for their 100% satisfaction guaranteed return policy, which allows customers to return any and all products from L.L. Bean, regardless of how long they’ve had it or how damaged it was. The policy was originated by Leon Leonwood Bean, who saw 90 of his first 100 pairs of boots returned to his store. He gave each customer their money back and vowed to make a better boot.
This policy has been in place for 106 years, but now the company has made some serious changes to it.
If you’re still in the habit of listening to music on your car’s CD player, we have bad news.
The music format is still popular around the world, but not in America. Last year, CD sales nationwide dropped by 18.5%. Compare last year’s 89 million CDs sold to the 800 million sold in 2001 (at the height of the CD’s popularity).
Those shrinking numbers were enough to scare some of America’s biggest stores away from selling CDs altogether.
The electronics retailer Best Buy has just announced it will stop selling CDs on July 1. The plan is part of a way to cut costs for the chain, which Billboard reports was only making $40 million annually from CD sales.
Ironically, the store plans to continue carrying vinyl records for at least the next two years, since the format has become popular (and profitable) again thanks to music fans and collectors.
As if the news wasn’t bad enough, Best Buy isn’t the only chain taking CDs off their shelves.
One of the biggest questions that just about everybody has to face at some point is this: what exactly do you want done with your body once you pass on?
It’s a question with plenty of feasible answers, and the reasoning behind just about any of them is equally valid. Do you want a religious ceremony in the place of worship of your choice, with a solemn burial to accompany it? Maybe you want to donate your organs to those who need them most first? Or maybe your wish is to be dressed up like Elvis in Blue Hawaii and shot out of a canon into a volcano? We’re not here to judge.
A very popular method of body disposal is cremation, as it means your burial is much easier (or even preservation should you want to be kept in a ceramic jar), and your ashes can be scattered at a place of your choosing should you want (although you’re technically not REALLY allowed to do that anymore).
However, one thing that people often forget about cremation is that, well, your coffin-housed body has to go into an incinerator. Why is this a problem you might ask? Well, it turns out that some people like sending off their loved ones with items that really, really shouldn’t get put into an incinerator…
Kylie Jenner gave birth over the weekend, confirming all the rumors we already knew. But because people are always hungry for a story, there’s now speculation as to what the name of her daughter will be, and we’ve gotta say…some theories add up.
Kylie revealed the birth of her first child on Instagram the same day of the Super Bowl, and shared her reasoning for keeping it all a secret.
The new mom apologized to fans for keeping everything so private, not that she owed anyone an explanation.
Kylie also posted a video on her YouTube channel which gave a glimpse into her nine month pregnancy, and also revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian’s newest child, Chicago West. Kylie was one of the first people to hold Chicago, and older sister Kim jokingly told her “I need to school you on what your vagina is about to feel like.”
In true Kardashian fashion, Kylie and her boyfriend, Travis Scott, are keeping their daughter’s name on the down-low. However, some eagle-eyed fans have put together a theory that actually makes a lot of sense.
Family ties are tight, no matter how far apart you are. For Kim Cattrall, who starred on Sex and the City, different countries didn’t keep her from trying to find her brother.
One day ago on Instagram, Cattrall revealed that her brother, Chris, had been missing since January 30th.
“His keys, cell phone, & wallet left on the table and his front door unlocked. This is not like Chris. He would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his 7 beloved dogs.”
MISSING! This is my brother Christopher Cattrall or Chris as we call him. He has been missing since Tuesday, January the 30th from his home in Lacombe, Alberta Canada. His keys, cell phone,& wallet left on the table and his front door unlocked. This is not like Chris. He he would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his 7 beloved dogs. Chris is 55 years old, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, blue eyes, short brown hair, goatee, average build & usually wearing a waist length hooded winter coat with black gloves, blue jeans and calf high black winter boots. If you’ve seen Chris contact Blackfalds RCMP at 403 885 3300 He’s a one of a kind brother. Help us bring him home safe. Please spread the world. Many thanks for reading this.

Chris Cattral went missing in Alberta, Canada. People all over social media shared the message, hoping to bring Chris back to his family. Kim spent five days retweeting and posting information about her brother’s disappearance, hoping he would come home soon.
“He’s a one-of-a-kind brother,” Kim Cattrall wrote. “Help us bring him home safe.”
Chris Cattral’s step-daugher, Katie Osmond, also posted about his disappearance.
“I know it’s hard to find people when they’ve gone missing,” she wrote. “I’m praying that he comes home safe and unharmed.”
Sadly, on February 4th, Kim Cattrall announced the “unexpected passing” of Chris.
It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy. We want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time. pic.twitter.com/n4dQAMrTvS

The news of Chris’s death comes two days after the five-year anniversary of his father’s death.
RCMP officers confirmed that Chris Cattrall’s body had been found, and that their investigation had concluded. They say the death is not considered suspicious.
In what was the worst kept secret in Hollywood for nine months, confirmation of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy has finally happened…because she literally gave birth.
If you remember, Kylie was reported pregnant in September 2017 with her boyfriend, Travis Scott. The 20 year old, who made $41 million last year, has kept her pregnancy a secret, never confirming or denying the rumors.
The father is Jenner’s boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott. The two have been dating since April, after Kylie’s split with long-time boyfriend, rapper Tyga.
“He was so excited he couldn’t keep it in,” says an insider. “He’s been so affectionate and protective of Kylie since they found out. He can’t wait to be a dad.”
Neither Kylie nor Travis commented as the stories started swirling, which only made people more curious.
Speculation grew when Kylie was noticeably absent from both the Kardashian Christmas party and the family Christmas photo. However, her sister Khloe revealed that Kylie really was at the event.
“Merry Christmas! People think you weren’t there last night,” Khloé said to Kylie in one Snapchat video as the younger sister replied: “I was.”
It seemed like Kylie could finally be inching closer to a public return, however privacy breaches in her own home forced Kylie to stay cooped up, with everyone wanting to get the first pictures of the pregnant starlet.
“I really feel bad for Kylie because there’s always somebody that’s trying to exploit a certain situation,” Kris said. “To have somebody in her own home trying to snap pictures they shouldn’t be snapping is really, really stressful. You want to be able to trust the people that you’re surrounded by, but we have to really be on alert at all time, and that’s extremely upsetting when you feel like you can’t be in your own bedroom or bathroom.”
Many people took this as a confirmation of the pregnancy. Everything about Kylie’s rumored pregnancy has been kept under wraps, with no photos of her surfacing since the announcement. It’s been very clear to everyone who is following along that Kylie wanted to keep things to herself.
But then, she had a massive crib delivered (and assembled) to her home, which was another piece of evidence that confirmed what most of us already knew.
Now, the youngest Kar-Jenner finally put all the speculation to rest when she posted on her Instagram page today.
