Kristin raps to “Ice, Ice, Baby”…on a moving bus.



Marie’s family shares a little insight into their lives and how Marie’s heart is SO big that she can even forgive the mean boy at school who tries to tip her wheelchair over…and becomes friends with him.

Marie’s Mom Reads Her A Letter


6-year-old Bree is SO excited…and she hadn’t even arrived at the hotel before the actual trip! She asked her mom over and over again if she could be a princess…and it happened.


Bert shares the secret code to cracking Hunter’s smile


When Brianna was first diagnosed with neuroblastoma, her mom told the doctors that they’d got the wrong room, and to leave and come back with the right results. Her mom talks about how Brianna swung back from near-death experiences, but she can barely get through the letter because of her tears:


Hear Noah’s mom talk about her struggle with accepting her son’s condition, almost like something flipped in her like a switch…after she asked for the strength.


Megan’s mom was told she’d never walk. And last week she danced. This little girl has overcome almost every negative prognosis – and she’s got her mom’s back as her mom reads her a tearful, heart-wrenching letter.


We hear wedding bells for Gabe’s parents! His parents originally had their wedding and honeymoon booked & paid for in Mexico, when Gabe, who had liver failure, cancer, and then liver rejection, suddenly had to be rushed to their emergency room. Now they finally get their wedding – at Disney!
