armpit hair

For those of us who love mustaches, November is like an early Christmas. That’s because each November, tons of hot dudes participate in what’s known as Movember, an annual mustache-growing event meant to raise awareness about testicular cancer. Now, a bunch of British ladies have created a female-centric version of Movember, called Armpits4August, now in its second year, which encourages ladies to grow out their armpit hair to raise funds to fight polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a disorder that effects up to 10 percent of women worldwide, and results in fertility problems, painful periods, and hormonal problems. Keep reading »

It’s Time To Cry: Couple Weds Early So Their Terminally Ill Son Can Serve As Best Man

Logan Stevenson Wedding

Get out your tissues, because this one’s a doozy. Christine Swidorsky and her fiance Sean Stevenson were planning to marry in July 2014, but after getting the news that their two-year-old son Logan, who suffers from acute myeloid leukemia, only had a couple weeks left to live, they decided to change the date to “as soon as possible.” They were able to throw together a lovely ceremony on Saturday, with Logan, dressed up in a tiny pinstripe suit, walking down the aisle with his mom and serving as the couple’s best man. The 12-minute ceremony included tears of joy and tears of sadness. Logan was able to appear in family photos along with the couple’s two other children, and his favorite stuffed rabbit was even immortalized in frosting on the wedding cake.

Two days after the wedding, Logan passed away. In a grief-stricken Facebook post, Christine shared the news and sent out a sweet message to Logan: “He is with angels and he’s in no more pain. No more sickness no more hospitals … I’ll [see you] in my dreams my son.” So heartbreaking. [Daily Mail]

Bette Midler Sings "Wind Beneath My Wings" To Dying Fan
A fan's dying wish.

You may be in need of an emotional release after last night’s filibuster and this morning’s DOMA ruling. Perhaps a good cry, “Beaches” style? I’ve got just the video to destroy your soul so the Phoenix can rise again from the ashes. Shortly before superfan Anna Greenberg lost her battle with cancer, Bette Midler placed a phone call to the 28-year-old on her death bed.

“It’s a mean world and I think the idea that people are kind and that they enhance the world, they are life enhancing, is so important. I’m just so touched that I was able to see the shining light that is around you,” said Midler. That alone is enough to squeeze a tear out of a stone, but then Bette went on and fulfilled one of Greenberg’s dreams by singing “Wind Beneath My Wings” to her. OK. I’m done for. Sobbing at my desk.

Since the introduction of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil in 2006, infections in women and girls have been by more than half. This statistic exceeds the expectations of researchers and although this progress is encouraging, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Director Thomas Frieden stated, “the report should be a wake-up call to our nation to protect the next generation by increasing HPV vaccination rates.”

The fact that the infection rate has dropped so much comes as a surprise because the inoculation rate in the U.S. is relatively low: only a third of girls ages 13 to 17 in the U.S. have been vaccinated. Unfortunately, HPV vaccinations have been dogged by “moral panic” concerns that vaccinating adolescent girls will encourage them to be promiscuous — which is flat-out not true.  Keep reading »
