Doctors Notice Something Strange Growing In THIS Infant’s Tummy. Then Realize It’s Growing In Her Twin Too!

Having a child is probably the most exciting and life altering moment of your life. Especially your first child, not knowing what to expect, everything is brand new and there is pretty much no instruction manual that covers your new life that is about to unfold before you! This whole new world of responsibility can at times become daunting and exhausting.

Now imagine instead of just one baby you are having twins! When having twins any worrying you had about one baby is now multiplied by two! From making sure both babies are fine inside the womb, to having a normal and safe birth, and finally preparations of their rooms and the baby proof house for two new babes!

The biggest fear most new parents face is worrying about the health of their new baby and hopefully no problems or health complications. Sadly for many parents, things don’t run as smooth as planned. There are so many things that could potentially go wrong during a pregnancy and if you aren’t being vigilant these issues can sneak right up on you.

That brings us to today’s story featuring Elisa and Michael Dunn, a couple who were expecting their first child. They were first stunned to find out they weren’t just bringing one baby into the world, they were having twin baby girls! They celebrated the news although they knew it would be double the work, but they still felt blessed and thankful.

On July 4th, Independence Day in the USA, twin baby girls Isabella and Madeline were born. Because they were born on July 4th they nicknamed the two cuties their sweet little ‘firecrackers’. As the new family settled in with their twin baby firecrackers everything seemed to be going great.

That is until one somber day in September when the twins had a routine check-up with their doctor. During the exam the doctor immediately noticed that Madeline’s stomach seemed to be bulging and when he pressed on it something didn’t feel right! The doctor took an ultrasound image, viewed it, and a visible growth was clearly showing. The doctor had to give the Dunn family some pretty scary news…

From what he saw on the ultrasound it looked as if baby Madeline may have some type of tumor or cancer! He sent them to a specialist to get her belly further checked out. They took blood work, got samples, did all the testing that was necessary. Then came the terrifying diagnosis. The doctor told the Dunns their sweet baby girl had a rare type of cancer called a Stage 4s Neuroblastoma. If this news wasn’t bad enough, the specialist suspected her twin sister Isabella might have something similar and asked her parents if he could examine her as well.

That’s when the double dose of terrible news came crashing down on the Dunns. Both of their daughters had soft balled sized Stage 4s Neuroblastomas growing off of their adrenal glands. The doctors explained to them that it is very rare for twins to both have the same cancer at the same time. But in this particular case they suspected that the initial cancer cells started multiplying and duplicating inside Madeline in the womb and were passed on to her sister Isabella.

They reasoned that because they were identical twins they shared certain blood vessels and arteries while they were still in the womb. These vessels would act as pathways for the cancer cells to travel from one baby to the other. Because the cancer began months before they were born and continued growing from their kidneys and then into their livers a successful surgery would not be possible.

Both girl’s livers were now filled with tumors and their fate was now uncertain. The doctors were unsure if surgery would be beneficial and they didn’t think either twin would survive it. So they decided on the next best thing Chemotherapy.

In general Chemotherapy can have serious side effects for a grown adult or an older child; but the side effects for babies this young would be much worse. Their parents were so scared and horrified, but they opted for the chemotherapy, because not doing anything was just not an option!

Both girls started chemotherapy separately during the first round. They both experienced horrible side effects and were suffering through the treatment. After the second round of chemo, the girls were brought back together and somehow just being near each other lessened the side effects.

They both went through 4 arduous, long and painful chemotherapy sessions, then two weeks before Christmas the twins had an MRI taken to see how they had responded to the treatment. A miracle had occurred, Isabella and Madeline’s cancer were both completely in remission and their were no signs of cancer in their systems!

Luckily their rare cancer stayed in remission and never came back! The girls still get check-ups every 6 months just to make sure everything is still in remission. The twins are now healthy and growing up just like any other normal kids would. They had no long term side effects from the cancer or the chemotherapy. Thank god this story had an amazing and beautifully happy ending for these two adorable baby ‘firecrackers’.

He Took THIS Pregnancy Test As A Joke. He Had No Idea THIS Would Save His Life!

Every once in a while you come across a story that is truly a real miracle!  A reddit user whose name is Cappnpoopdeck thought it would be a hysterical joke to pee on his x-girlfriend’s pregnancy tests she had left in his bathroom.  He took the pregnancy test urinated on it and to his surprise the test came back positive saying that indeed he was pregnant. He was confused and couldn’t understand how this was possible!

What started out as a funny gag to mess with his x-girlfriend actually ended up saving this lucky man’s life.  This is something everyone should be aware of. As it turns out pregnancy tests look for raised levels of HCG, which is a hormone produced by pregnant women and men with testicular cancer!

Right after Cappnpoopdeck got word from fellow Redditors he immediately rushed over to his doctor. During the exam the doctor found a tumor in his testicle!  If he never peed on this little stick, he probably would’ve died at such a young age.  Thank god for the internet, which on this day happened to save this guy’s life! So with all the craziness on the internet these days, there is still amazing miracles that can happen!

She Was Diagnosed With Breast Cancer But What Doctors Say Potentially Caused It Left Her Stunned!

Wendy Holt, a 51 year old woman from the UK was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Neither her age, ethnicity, family history nor lifestyle habits provided any pre-existing likelihood that she would develop this disease.

Further, diagnostic tests showed an unusual formation of small tumors, rarely seen.  When she was told that she had breast cancer and was informed of the strange pattern of the tumors, she instinctively knew what had caused this.  Wendy had stored her cellphone inside her bra, on the side where the tumors had developed, every day for years.  In fact, it had been a decade that she had done so, for convenience sake.

The breast where she had stored her cellphone was swollen, which led her to get medical attention.  What was found was a rare and inflammatory type of breast cancer.  According to the Daily Mail, Holt said, “I got my first phone  around 1999 and I was quite big-busted, so I would store it down there and nobody would be able to tell. It was pressed against my skin for probably 70 per cent of the day for about ten years — and I didn’t give it a thought.”

Holt survived the breast cancer, but unfortunately the disease had metastasized to her lungs and lymph nodes.  Her diagnosis is terminal and it will be unlikely that she will live to see her next birthday.  Generously, Holt has used this very sad and horrifying turn in her life, as a forum to forewarn others to never store a cellphone next to your skin on a regular basis.  She said, “People might disagree with my theory, but it’s my belief and I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.”

The doctors and others who were involved with her case, do concur with her theory, given the unusual array of the tumors, which matched the shape and position of how she stored her cellphone within her bra.

Watch the video below, to hear more details about this and other cases, which should be used as a cautionary tale of how to safely store your cellphone.  It should be kept in a pocket or purse, away from actual skin contact.  Sadly, Holt had to learn this through devastating consequences, but wants people to know what the possible consequences are, of phone to skin contact. She plans to take, what will likely be, her final family vacation to Malta.

NOTE: There have not been conclusive studies on this subject and as of today Doctors and Scientists need to collect more data to get definitive conclusive evidence. However, keeping your cell phone away from your skin is advised by cell phone companies and doctors alike.

If You Have An Annoying Cowlick In Your Hair It Could Actually Save Your Life

I’ve always worn bangs, in part because I have this annoying cowlick in the front of my hairline. Somehow it has helped me to manage the awkward angle of hair growth, that is always a challenge to hair styling.  Cowlicks just seem to have a mind of their own, that is oppositional to the way the rest of your hair grows..

Why is it called a cowlick you may ask?  Apparently when cows lick their calves, it causes the hair to swirl in an unruly manner, thus the coining of the term “cowlick” for unruly human hair.  They are extremely common; in fact Brad Pitt is famous for his.  Who would ever think that the frustrating cowlick would have an incredible silver lining…in fact a blessing in disguise.  Amazingly, a recent study has discovered that the genes linked to cowlicks may have THE POWER TO SAVE LIVES!

The researchers at Michigan State University have discovered that the “polarity genes” that are linked to cowlicks, may hold the key to finding a CURE FOR CANCER!  The video you are about to watch below goes into a deeper explanation of how polarity genes are vital for proper cell operation. The polarity genes also cause parts of the body to grow in oppositional patterns, such as the unruly hair growth in a cowlick.

So, what in the world does this have to do with fighting cancer?  Polarity genes are organized in the body by a protein that has been known to suppress certain tumors.  Strangely enough, the DNA of humans and fruit flies is almost identical, so the researchers at MSU used fruit flies to make the connection between the polarity gene protein and cowlicks.

Because of the genetic similarities between humans and fruit flies, these researchers will be able to test the theory that people who don’t have this protein or too little of it, puts them at risk, for their cells not being able to fight off the viruses which cause cancers.  Restoring this protein in patients lends hope to a new kind of chemotherapy which will lead to a much higher cure rate across many types of cancer.  The video below will help to connect all these dots, that may be a breakthrough discovery in the fight against cancer.

If You See This Black Line On Your Nail Or Someone Else’s THIS Is What It Means!

We have all been taught that any changes in a freckle or mole, with respect to color, size or shape, should be checked out immediately.  A dermatologist will know whether the changes are suspicious looking, and require a biopsy.  Waiting to have such changes checked by a professional, leaves you open to the possibility of a skin cancer going undetected and becoming potentially life-threatening.

Most people, however, are unaware of the warning signs of cancerous tissue under the fingernails.  Melanomas in the fingernail area is more common amongst African Americans, but is possible in every demographic of the population.

What are the warning signs to look for?  The following video will go into greater detail about these potentially deadly masses.  The typical manifestation of such a cancer appears as a black stripe in the nail.  Although such a streak may not be cancerous, it should be checked by a dermatologist, particularly if it gets larger or darker.

If cancerous cells are found early enough, a removal of the nail and the cancerous tissue underneath may be sufficient.  Waiting too long may result in amputation of the tip of one’s finger.  The worse case scenario, as with any unchecked cancer cells, is that it metastasizes to other organs, which can result in deadly consequences.

In the following footage, Dr. Dana Stern who specializes in cancer of the nails, discusses what to look out for in more depth.  She says that the nail matrix is affected by this  type of cancer.  I found this video to be most informative in understanding what to look out for, when it comes to nail health.

Video: The Caught Their Dog’s Priceless Response To Her Cancer Test Results On Video. That Face!

Dani and her husband have a beloved  Golden Retriever named Lily who got sick overnight.  They rushed her to the veterinarian and received horrible news that she had a giant tumor on her spleen. “She was so anemic her breathing was affected and we had to make a fast choice.

They told us it was hemangiosarcoma, that more than half of Golden Retrievers die from it,” Dani wrote. “It comes in fast and she only had hours to live if we didn’t do surgery. Even if we did, she’d still only have months. There was only a 10% chance that it was the benign kind and they said in 25 years it’s never happened.”

Without a second thought Dani and her husband used most of their savings to go ahead with the surgery, even though they were warned of the slim chances of saving her.  A 6 pound tumor was removed during the surgery.  Lily seemed to be feeling remarkably better after the tumor removal, but Dani and her husband were warned that his newfound health would only be temporary.

One week later they got the results. The video is of Dani explaining the situation to Lily.  She tells her to sit down as she explains the details of the type of cancer and what the doctors have explained to them.  A truly remarkable moment is recorded that will change your day.
