Siblings, Ages 4 and 6, Diagnosed with Brain Tumors Just 2 Weeks Apart: ‘We Broke Down in Tears’

Two young siblings from Southern California were diagnosed with brain cancer just two weeks apart from each other, and now face a long road of aggressive treatment to keep the tumors at bay.

At the end of May, 6-year-old Kalea Avery experienced worsening headaches that prompted her parents to take her to a neurologist just after the Memorial Day weekendAfter performing an MRI, doctors found a tumor —  measuring 3.5 centimeters in diameter — forming near the stem of the young girl’s brain, reports the Daily Breeze, and Kalea soon underwent a four-hour surgery to remove the mass on June 11.

“We go from having a healthy baby girl who’s a skateboarder and a soccer player, who’s just loving life, to having a tumor removed from her brain,” Kalea’s father, Duncan Avery, told the Los Angeles Times.

Doctors soon discovered the mass was cancerous and diagnosed Kalea with medulloblastoma, a fast-growing cancer that forms at the base of the skull which can spread to the spinal cord and other parts of the body. Because medulloblastoma tumors grow in the area of the brain that controls complex motor and cognitive functions, patients typically display trouble with movement and balance.

The family was able to quickly get started on Kalea’s treatment, but their nightmare was far from over. Two weeks after Kalea’s diagnosis, Duncan and his wife, Nohea, noticed that 4-year-old Noah had begun taking longer-than-usual naps. They initially figured their son was depressed about his sister’s situation until he complained of headaches in the area between his eyebrows — the same spot his sister pointed to just weeks earlier. Then, the family told the TimesNoah began to lean as he walked.

Scans on June 21 revealed that Noah had a mass in the same spot as his sister, and doctors removed the tumor four days later. While tests are pending, they believe the tumor is medulloblastoma as well.

“We broke down in tears,” Duncan, a 36-year-old coach at Redondo Beach Union High School, told the Times. “How could two kids in 14 days have the exact same tumor? How does that happen?”

For the parents, the reality that both of their children had such a serious form of cancer, at the same time nonetheless, was devastating.

“My heart literally felt like it was broke apart,” Nohea, a nurse practitioner, told CBS Los Angeles. “It was being pulled out of my chest.”

RELATEDMan With Terminal Cancer Dies Just Days After Watching Daughter’s Wedding From His Hospital Bed

A GoFundMe page to help the family with their medical expenses has raised more than $ 117,000 of its $ 150,000 goal in just four days thanks to more than 1,300 donors.

Noah and Kalea will soon start radiation and possibly chemotherapy. Fortunately, with aggressive treatment, most children can fight off medulloblastoma long enough to the point where it won’t return, according to UCSF. Both siblings will also enter physical, occupational and speech therapy to help in their recovery.

“I don’t know how I’m going to get through this, but you do. You find a way,” Nohea told KTLA. “You look at your children, you hold them and you just find a way.”

Teen On ‘America’s Got Talent’ Brings The Tears As She Performs For Her Father With Cancer

You’ll need all the tissues you can find watching Evie Clair’s performance from Tuesday night’s “America’s Got Talent.”

While onstage, the 13-year-old singer tearfully revealed that part of the reason she’s performing is for her dad, who was diagnosed with colon cancer about a year ago.

The audience was in tears even before Clair sang one note of Christina Perri’s “Arms,” a song she sings to her father when he’s going through rough days. When she started singing, and shots of her family watching offstage appeared on screen, it was just too much.

Just try not to cry all over your keyboard. Then you’ll be sobbing for other reasons.

Ariana Grande’s Emotional ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ Performance Had Us In Tears

Ariana Grande broke down in tears while closing out the One Love Manchester benefit concert Sunday night with a stunning performance of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” 

The singer, who also performed a number of times throughout the show, began the final performance by first singing her song “One Last Time.” All the artists who participated in the show stood onstage with Grande, projecting a strong message of solidarity. 

As she sang, Grande held her mic out to the crowd and they sang along to every word. 

In what may have been the most powerful moment of the show, Grande performed “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” alone onstage. The stunning performance had many in the crowd in tears.

Grande herself was also overcome with emotion, breaking down before finishing the song. The crowd then erupted into cheers and the singer managed to get through the final bit beautifully. 

Proceeds from the One Love Manchester benefit will go toward the victims and families affected by the tragic attack that took place at Manchester Arena last month during one of Grande’s concerts. A bomb was detonated at the arena, killing 22 people, including children, and injuring at least 59 others. 

Following the attack, Grande said she was left feeling “broken.” 

My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones,” Grande later wrote in a statement. “There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.”

She added, “The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.” 

The benefit concert also took place just one night after terror struck in the U.K. once again. A vehicle plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge, killing seven and injuring 50 more. The benefit seemed to take on an even more powerful meaning following the London attack, with the stars sharing uplifting messages in solidarity with both U.K. cities.

This Emotional Wedding Photo Is Bringing The Internet To Tears

Posed wedding photos can certainly be beautiful, but there’s something to be said for the raw, genuine emotion that’s captured in candid shots. 

On April 30, photographer James Day was taking wedding pictures for a couple named Adrian and Roslyn, who tied the knot in Bowral, Australia. He was setting them up for some posed sunset photos when he was struck with a better idea. 

“Just as the light became amazing, I scrapped everything I knew and I walked up to them and said, ‘Guys, stop posing. Just enjoy your first sunset together as husband and wife,’” he recalled in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

Day then said to the groom, “I have a question for you, but I want you to tell the answer to Roslyn and not me. Out of the billions of people on the planet, you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with Roslyn. Can you tell her why?”

That’s when Adrian whispered his answer in Roslyn’s ear. Tears began streaming down her face. Day, too, began to cry, even without knowing what Adrian had told her. 

“It wasn’t for me to hear,” Day told HuffPost. “I had him whisper it in her ear because it’s for her ears only. I like that they were able to share that moment privately ― well, until it went viral on the internet.” 

“This is what I love to photograph,” he added. “Not the overly posed interactions.”

After the sentimental shot, the newlyweds and their photographer joined together for a group hug.

“A photographer that I look up to named Jesh De Rox once said to me that to move others you have to first be moved yourself. I think this is proof that he is right,” Day said.

WATCH: SNL Tears into Ivanka Trump in Mock Ad for ‘Complicit’ Perfume

Ivanka Trump‘s brand and namesake perfume has been the center of controversy — despite a call for its boycott, the fragrance is a best-seller on Amazon — but Saturday Night Live has decided to distill the First Daughter’s essence in a bottle with just one word: Complicit.

Host Scarlett Johansson took on the 35-year-old mother-of-three for a parody perfume ad that took aim at her support for her father, President Donald Trump, despite his divisive policies.

“She’s beautiful. She’s powerful. She’s… Complicit,” says a voice-over narrator. “She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing. Complicit.”

RELATED VIDEO: Watch: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

Johansson, as Trump, walks around a glamorous black-tie party in a gold gown. At one point, the First Daughter is shown looking in a mirror putting on lipstick as a reflection of Alec Baldwin as the 45th president looks back at her.

“She doesn’t crave the spotlight. But we see her. Oh, how we see her,” the narrator says.

RELATED VIDEO: This Is How Much It Would Cost to Paint the White House (And More Crazy Facts)

“A feminist. A champion. An advocate for women. Like…how?” the voice asks.

“She’s loyal. Devoted. Probably should have bounced after that whole Access Hollywood bus thing.”

The skit concludes with the fictional perfume’s tagline: “Complicit, the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this — but won’t.”

And men haven’t been left out — there’s also a cologne for Trump’s husband Jared Kushner.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Cities and Art that Bring Us to Tears


So, Memorial Day is over. But, some memories continue to linger… I keep thinking about an intriguing article I read in yesterday’s New York Times Op-Ed section by T.M. Luhrmann, which asks the question, “What gives certain places their extraordinary power to move people so deeply?” It starts with a story of a teenager who went to Jerusalem. “There he met God… he had an experience so remarkable, so terrifying, so powerful… Jerusalem has this effect on so many people that experiences like this have a name: Jerusalem syndrome.”


Then, the article mentioned the so-called Florence syndrome, which brings many visitors to their knees in the Uffizi Gallery. But, actually, the more accepted description for this phenomenon is the Stendhal syndrome, named after the famous French writer, who saw Giotto’s frescoes in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, and was overcome with emotion. He wrote, “I was in a sort of ecstasy… I had palpitations of the heart… life was drained from me. I walked with the fear of falling.”


So, all of this makes me think of the famous Russian writer Feodor Dostoyevsky, who, during his visit to Dresden Gallery, dropped to his knees and started to cry in front of the famous painting, Sistine Madonna, by Raphael. All his life, he had admired this painting and kept a black-and-white lithographic reproduction of it in his apartment in St. Petersburg. Many years later, confronting the original painting in person, he experienced rapture…


I haven’t read anything about a “Rome syndrome” yet, but my first experience with this city made my heart palpitate when, as a teenager, I saw the Hollywood movie, A Roman Holiday. For us living in the Soviet Union, to travel to Italy was virtually impossible. Yet, there I was, along with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, climbing Spanish Steps and driving a Vespa by the Coliseum. I was in heaven… Many years later, during my emigration, I found myself living in Rome, continuing to be in awe of this Eternal City.


And last, but not least, let me mention Paris syndrome, which, according to the New York Times article, Japanese tourists experience when they arrive in the City of Light. Wikipedia mentions that there is a 24-hour help line run by the Japanese embassy to help tourists suffering from this condition, viewed as a severe form of culture shock. Luckily for me, my recent trip to Paris was pure joy.

Yesterday, I stopped by the Norton Simon Museum, to see a small exhibition of rare paintings on loan from the famous d’Orsay Museum in Paris. One of them is Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1, by American artist Whistler. This painting, commonly known as Whistler’s Mother, is one of the iconic artworks of the 19th century. And to see it, here in LA, is a rare treat.


Next to Whistler’s painting hangs another jewel on loan from Musée d’Orsay – a portrait of the French writer Émile Zola, by Edouard Manet. The young writer wrote a passionate essay in defense of Manet, who was rejected from participating in an official Salon in 1866. And now, all this is here for us in LA.

So, my friends, treat yourselves to a taste of Paris at the Norton Simon Museum – but, be warned, the emotions might overwhelm you…

Groom’s Compassionate Wedding Dance With His Mom Will Move You To Tears

At his wedding, groom Luke Rheault had planned to do a special mother-son dance with his mom Rebekah, who had been diagnosed with ALS a year before the nuptials.

Once the song, “Hero” by Mariah Carey, started playing, Luke said something felt off. His mom was sitting in her wheelchair and Luke was towering over her. So he did something unexpected and sweet and got down on his knees for the duration of the dance.

“I remember feeling uncomfortable standing above her for the first few moments of the dance — it just didn’t feel normal, and that’s when I got down on my knees and danced with her,” Luke told The Huffington Post. “I had no idea of the impact it had on everyone until they had told me.”

Credit: Magdalena Photography

“I wanted her to feel so special in that very moment, so I tried to make the best of it and spin her around and continue smiling with her,” Luke added. “I don’t recall at any point in the wedding thinking that these might be my last few moments with my mother. So I did what felt right at the time, and I’m really glad I did because it’s a memory that has well-served its purpose.”

Credit: Magdalena Photography

Luke and his wife Kristeena tied the knot in November 2008 at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. But it wasn’t until March 2015 that the bride decided to post the heartbreakingly beautiful video to YouTube.

Sadly, Rebekah died in September 2009 — less than a year after she and her son shared their dance.

“There was not a dry eye in the house, everyone was so touched by the dance,” the bride Kristeena told HuffPost. “The tears started as soon as Luke dropped down to his knees to dance with her. You can see Luke’s daughter Arianna in the background crying and hugging my mother and then Luke’s father.”

It wasn’t until Wednesday that Luke watched the dance in its entirety for the first time. He said it’s brought on a wave of emotion and many wonderful memories.

“I found myself reliving all that this woman did for me — everything that she embodied as a mother and everything she taught me to be,” he said. “I tell it to everyone: ‘It’s a void that can never be filled.’ I’ve never considered myself to be a mama’s boy, but I’ve always appreciated everything she has done for me. Growing up and getting older enhances the power of those feelings.”

My Wedding Dress: True-Life Tales of Lace, Laughter, Tears and Tulle

My Wedding Dress: True-Life Tales of Lace, Laughter, Tears and Tulle

My Wedding Dress explores the wedding outfit as a touchstone garment in women’s lives. In the tradition of Dropped Threads, this collection offers twenty-six true stories from well-known writers and fresh new literary voices. These are intimate stories about relationships; not just those between men and women, but between women and their mothers, friends and children. And, of course, with their wedding attire – a relationship that is sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but always fascinating in what it tells us about individual lives and aspirations. Some of the tales are humorous – the bride whose skin is dyed fuchsia on her wedding night or the woman whose shopping-savvy aunt takes her to New York’s garment district. Some are romantic – the woman who puts on her dress eight years after her wedding only to be caught by her husband when he comes home early from work or the quickie immigration wedding that turned into the real thing. Some are devastating – the bride who loses her mother to illness only days before her wedding or the woman whose mother tells of being kidnapped by her future husband. And some are revealing – the woman who wears her first wedding dress for her initiation ceremony into a convent and her second to marry her beloved; the dress that waited patiently in a shop window and then hidden in a box on a closet shelf; the same-sex wedding at age eighty; the thrift shop wedding dress that gets used for everything "but" a wedding. All are honest, personal and profoundly moving. As Anne Laurel Carter explains in her introduction, the pieces "fell easily" into four categories, so that’s how the book is organized. "Something Old" looks at how traditions like honouring one’s ancestors affected wedding dress choices, from a grandmother’s gift to a father’s old leather jacket, but also at how such traditions can play a role in ways you least expect. The pieces in "Something New" focus on dreams for the future, whether that means breaking away from the expectations of one’s family or choosing/creating a wedding dress (and a future) on your own. In "Something Borrowed," writers tell of all the reasons behind borrowing (or trying to borrow ) dresses, for whatever reason, and "Something Blue . . . Or Peach . . . Or Striped . . . Or Floral . . ." looks at exactly that-the non-traditional choices women have made, and why. These stories re-create the range of emotions that are invested in dresses and wedding days: confidence, optimism, hesitation, fear, fury and hope. When you work away at the seams, even the simplest of wedding outfits reveals all manner of memories and meanings. And whether you’ve been married or not, the stories in My Wedding Dress will have you looking back with new eyes on your own life, and exploring what the phrase "my wedding dress" means to you.

The Thank-You That Brought Iyanla to Tears – Iyanla: Fix My Life – OWN

Tune in Saturdays at 9/8c.

Ryan has four—soon to be five—children with four different women. During a discussion with Iyanla about love, infidelity and the responsibilities of being a father, Ryan and his mother begin to work through their issues on Iyanla’s stage.

Ryan, whose father died when he was 7 years old, gets emotional when he addresses his mother, who admits that she was verbally abusive towards him when he was a boy. First, Ryan forgives her for the past. “I forgive you for tearing me down,” he says. “I forgive you for every time I hurt myself. I forgive you. I love you. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”

Then, Ryan reveals why he’s thankful for his mother. “Even though you weren’t my father, Mom, you showed me how to be a parent. And I never walk away from my kids because of you,” he says. “It was hard for me to come up here. I drove six hours. I wanted to turn around so many times because I knew God was going to break me down, and I didn’t want it to happen yet. But I’m sick of hurting.”

In the video above, Ryan bares his soul as an emotional Iyanla stands behind the family.

Iyanla is also teaching a six-week eCourse on forgiveness.
