Many people all over the world go to McDonalds every day. Whether they are just trying to squeeze in a quick lunch in between appointments at work or their kids are just dying to get a happy meal. Many people don’t realize that working at a fast food joint as an employee is not an easy gig. Whether you are dealing with rude and angry customers, a line out the door, or getting burned by some scolding hot oil in the fryer! I have a lot of respect and tip my hat to all the hard working people at McDonalds and any other fast food restaurant. Working in any job with customer service is never a walk in the park!

Now on the flip side, from the customers perspective, when you think about going to McDonalds it really never occurs to you that something seriously tragic or horrible could potentially happen. Maybe they run out of 20 piece nuggets?

Maybe the fries aren’t crispy enough? Or maybe, worst case scenario they put pickles on your burger when you asked for no pickles! LOL! All kidding aside, sometimes things you could never imagine happening in your wildest dreams actually do occur..

This brings us to today’s story which features 22-year old Pedro Veloria, A hard working, driven and all around good guy from Miami, Florida. Pedro came from a low income family raised by his single mom who had to work 2-3 jobs just to makes ends meet.

When he was growing up he always took odd jobs like mowing lawns, painting fences or baby sitting to help relieve his mom of some of the financial burden. Pedro always got good grades in school and hoped to one day go to college, but his mother couldn’t afford to send him and he wasn’t eligible for any scholarships.

One night, Pedro and his family went out to go bowling which was their favorite family activity. On the way home they stopped at McDonalds and saw that they were hiring employees and the pay was above minimum wage. Pedro decided he would apply for the job and a couple days later he got it! This would be Pedro’s first real job and he could really start help his hard-working mother out with the bills.

He went through intensive training, learned the ins and outs of every aspect of the job and quickly fell into a daily routine. He would start work at the crack of dawn at 5am, work all day then go home help out with the kids, pass out then wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

Although he was exhausted and working extremely hard, he always kept a positive attitude and would make sure no matter how small or insignificant his specific task was he did it with perfect precision!

One day Pedro was working the drive-thru. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and he was going about his shift like he always did. With a big smile, courteous, helpful and making sure everybody always got exactly what they ordered. That’s when something unimaginable began to unfold in the drive-thru line.

Pedro could hear kids crying in one of the cars. This wasn’t particularly strange because children screaming and crying in the back of their parents car at the drive-thru is something that happens on a daily basis. However, there was something different about the distinct sound of these particular kid’s screams!

It wasn’t the sound of some bratty kids whining, it sounded more like screams of pure terror and fear! The driver of the car was a woman and her head was down, she was hunched over the wheel and looked to be completely unconscious. Even worse the car was not stopped and was moving forward in the drive-thru line!

Pedro’s instincts immediately kicked in and he jumped through the drive-thru window like an olympic pole vaulter. He sprinted as fast as his legs would move, got to the car with the unresponsive lady, her scared kids and somehow got the vehicle to stop moving!

At this point the woman was still unconscious. Pedro quickly called for help and luckily there were two firefighters who were grabbing a bite at the McDonalds. They jumped from their table, ran to the car and began CPR to try and revive the unconscious mom.

The paramedics came next and the woman was brought to the hospital. Luckily because of Pedro’s quick thinking, rapid response time and just being an all around Good Samaritan and local hero nobody was hurt. The lady happened to be an off-duty cop and was still unconscious when she got to the hospital, but thankfully she made a full recovery!

Pedro had saved a police officer and her children’s life. He decided that it was time for his life to switch gears from McDonalds employee to becoming a paramedic so he could save people in need everyday of his life! What could’ve been a tragedy ended up being a wonderful happy ending thanks to Pedro!

Lady Is Stunned After She Swings Open Her Door and Sees Her 5-Year-Old Neighbor As He Clutches His Baby Sister In Fear!

When most people hear a knock at their door at night, and they’re not expecting anyone, they ignore it and hope whoever it is goes away.  Many don’t even bother opening the door for obvious reasons, it can be very dangerous and lead to terrible things.  

When Jessica Penoyer heard a knock on her door after dark, she initially thought to ignore it, but something told her to check and see who it was.  When she looked out the window, she saw her 5 year old neighbor Salvador Cicalese, who everyone calls Sal, clutching his 2 month old sister in his arms.  It was late and she was surprised to see the children out by themselves, so she immediately opened the door to see what the matter was.  

At first Jessica thought she heard Sal tell her that his dog died, but when she repeated what she’d initially heard back to him he said “no, my mom died in the shower, can you take care of us?”  Shocked, Jessica called 911 and ran over to the neighbor’s house to check on Sal’s mother, Kaitlyn Cicalese. She found her in the bathtub unconscious with the water still running. The tub had been filling up and if Jessica hadn’t arrived when she did, Kaitlyn could have drowned.  

It turned out that Kaitlyn had suffered a seizure in the shower after she had put her children to sleep.  All she remembers is turning the water on and then waking up in the hospital, it’s the second time she has had a seizure since she gave birth to her infant daughter.  When she fell, Sal had been in his room when he heard the loud thud and went to see what happened. That’s when he found his mother lying in the tub unconscious with blood coming from a wound in her head.  

Thinking she was dead, Sal tried his best to stay calm and get help.  He went and got his 2 month old sister and wrapped her snugly in a blanket before placing her on the couch.  He couldn’t get the front door unlocked so he headed to the garage. Since he was too short to reach the garage door opener, he had to use a stool and on his first attempt he fell over.  Thankfully he landed on a pile of shoes so he didn’t get hurt, and on his second try the door opened. He went back and got his little sister then headed over to Jessica’s house, and the rest is history.

After hearing what he did, Sal’s mother believes that he saved her life that day.  She could have drowned or bled out from her head wound if he hadn’t gotten help right away.  In the end, Sal was awarded for his heroism by the local San Tan Valley, Arizona fire department.  They gave him an honorary certificate, patch, shirt and helmet in recognition for what he did. He also got a nickname from the firefighters, “Super Sal” which is more than fitting.

This Boy Had Disappeared For Two Years. Then Dad Spots Something Underneath The Dresser!

image via – youtube.com

Divorce and custody battles can bring out the absolute worst in people.  Sometimes parents have such animosity and hate for one another that they simply lose sight of what actually matters, which is what is best for their children.  While we’ve all heard of messy divorces and spiteful ex’s, the story of six year old Richard “Ricky” Chekevdia is one of the more extreme tales to ever arise from a bad breakup.

It all started when Shannon Wilfong and Michael Chekevdia found out they were pregnant back in 2002.  They were excited and happy but had been fighting a lot and the relationship was strained. After their son Ricky was born they decided to break up and share custody of him.  At first things seemed to be going well but that didn’t last long and soon Shannon had reneged on their custody agreement which led to Michael taking her to court for visitation rights.  She never showed up on the day she was supposed to appear and so the judge gave Michael temporary custody. Yet soon after that both Shannon and Ricky just vanished, and no one seemed to know where they had gone.

It soon became apparent that Shannon had run away with their child and a warrant was issued for her arrest.  Things only got worse for Michael when Shannon’s mother, Diane Dobbs, accused him of abusing Ricky and plastered her yard with posters claiming he was a liar and abuser.  Her extreme behavior made Michael suspicious and he suspected that she was somehow in touch with her daughter. The cops ended up searching Diane’s house but found nothing and Michael kept looking for his son.

Two years had passed since his son went missing when an anonymous tip led to the police searching Diane’s house yet again.  They combed through the rooms carefully when they came upon a wood dresser that was pushed up against the wall. They moved it aside and found themselves looking down at a dark hole that led to a small twelve feet long, five feet wide, and four foot tall room.  Down there in the dark room they found Shannon hiding with Ricky, he’d finally been found at last!

It turned out that Diane had hidden her daughter and grandson away for the last 2 years and Michael had been right about his suspicions the whole time.  Despite his ordeal, Ricky seemed to be in good health and was placed with family members while state welfare workers investigated the abuse claims against Michael.  In the meantime, Ricky was just happy to be outside and free again. The cops who found him said that when they let him out of the car, he ran around like he’d never seen outdoors before, it was a bittersweet sight.  

Both Shannon and her mother were arrested, Shannon was charged with felony child abduction, Diane was charged with aiding her.  When freed on bail, Diane tried to make it sound like Ricky had enjoyed his time at her house and wasn’t hidden away inside. However, neighbors refuted this and said they never saw the boy outside, plus he showed signs of isolation.

In 2011 the sad saga finally came to an end.  Shannon pled guilty and got off light with just 2 years probation and a $1500 fine.  Michael finally got full custody of Ricky and looked forward to being the best dad he could be and giving his son the normal life he deserves.

9-Year-Old With Terminal Cancer Tells His Father ‘I Gotta Quit’. But Then Makes Him a Promise That Left Him In Tears!

image via – youtube.com

Once you become a parent it quickly dawns on you that your life is no longer the most important thing to you but your child’s life now takes precedence over your own. Seeing your young kid sick is one of the hardest things for a parent to deal with especially when there is nothing you can do to make them better.

You will make any sacrifice you possibly can for your child and will do everything in your power to try and get them better, no matter what the cost. In a worse case scenario situation they can be able to survive their illness! Until you face this reality as a parent it is truly hard to grasp how sad, difficult, scary, and life altering this situation can be.

Even if your child isn’t sick having that initial conversation about death is one of the hardest thing a parent will ever have to do. How can you explain death to a kid when as an adult it’s almost impossible to grasp the idea of it yourself. Even worse what happens when you have to have this conversation with your son and it’s not a theoretical conversation, but a talk about his imminent death.

This brings us to today’s heart breaking story. Bill Kohler father of Aiden Kohler, was diagnosed with a very rare form of childhood cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG. This is a very dangerous form of cancer that forms a large mass or tumor in the middle of the brainstem. This form of cancer is almost impossible to treat because it grows around the nerves in the brain.

If these nerves are operated on the patient will almost certainly die. People diagnosed with this type of cancer usually can only live for at most 12 months after it is found. This form of cancer is so rare that only 300 humans are diagnosed each year and they are usually between the ages of 5-9 years old.

In Aiden’s particular case his diagnosis was even worse because they didn’t just find one tumor they found two! Even with the devastating news about his son, Bill a veteran and former army medic tried just about anything and everything he could to save his son’s life.

He tried to get him into multiple experimental trials that weren’t fully cleared yet in a last ditch effort to save the young boy. Unfortunatley Aiden didn’t meet the requirements for these test trials and was rejected over and over again. When Bill finally had to come to terms with the fact that there was absolutely nothing he could do, he made his boy a promise that he would make his final days on earth as fulfilling and special as he possibly could.

Aiden got to meet his favorite wrestlers, celebrity chefs, go hunting in the woods and play with his favorite soccer team. Then came his tenth and final birthday where his parents tried their best and gave him an amazing final birthday. Time was quickly running out as the sand in the hour glass was almost empty, Aiden’s short life was coming to an end.

All his bodily functions were shutting down. He couldn’t swallow, breathe, walk and talking was becoming more and more difficult. He knew he was going to die soon and he looked up at his father and told him ‘Dad I gotta quit’. Bill the former army medic looked at his son with tears streaming down his eyes and told him, ‘if you fought as hard as you possibly could and you just can’t go on it’s okay to quit son’.

Aiden said to his dad after he’s gone he wants to be remembered as a fighter, filled with happiness, funny, a good athlete, smart, wise beyond his years and selfless. He also wanted to people to celebrate his life by dancing and singing and not be sad that he is now gone from this earth.

Aiden died soon after but his family, friends and community will never forget this special boy who will forever remain in their memories. To this day donations are still being given to John Hopkins in Aiden’s name to try and find a cure for DIPG.
