Heart Patient Particpates in Triathlon

37 year old Kyle Garlett’s plan is to particpate in this October’s Ford Ironman World Championship. Garlett has overcome every medical obstacle that has been in his way.

His medical issues began in 1989 when he received his first Hodgkin’s disease diagnosis as a high school senior. In 1995, during his third battle with the cancer, doctors ceased his chemotherapy treatment when they discovered it had weakened his heart.

Two years later, Garlett learned he had secondary leukemia as a result of chemotherapy to treat the Hodgkin’s, and three more years of chemotherapy ensued.

And after five years on the waiting list, he received a new heart in 2006.

Peanut Free Ball Game

According to the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, there is an estimated 1 percent of all U.S. children who have allergies to peanuts. In Hoover, Alabama children with this allergy had the chance to go to a peanut free ball game.

To minimize the threat, the Barons power-washed Regions Park stadium for several consecutive days before the game to get rid of any peanuts or their remnants, spokesman Justin Rosenberg said. All peanuts or related products were removed from the facility’s vendor booths.

Real Life as A Musical…

Did you ever wonder what it would be like if the people around you just broke out into song and dance?  Break Out in Song, brings Broadway to the street and surprises random onlookers to a free show.

The guerilla-style performances show us what it might be like if everyone actually knew the words to songs… and the dance moves. Just like being in “Grease!”

Check out some of their performances:
