Two years ago we brought you a story about an amazing young 13-year-old girl named Ashley from Elwood, Indiana, who was raped by her brother’s friend and became pregnant. Ashley prosecuted her rapist, and he was charged and convicted on three counts as Ashley wasn’t his only victim.

This story tugged on the heart strings of millions of Americans as this young girl chose to carry her child to term and gave birth to a beautiful little boy she named Aiden.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana even weighed in on Ashley’s tragic story via their official Facebook page by posting a link to an article written in the Indianapolis Star, saying the following: “As this article notes, heartbreaking stor

Somehow, for playwright Darrell Baker, a musical filled with death and despair has been a welcome distraction from his own mortality. Despite the morbid themes in "Somebody's Ripper," a new musical Baker wrote with his wife about the women killed by 19th-century serial murderer Jack the Ripper, it's helped him escape his newly discovered pancreatic cancer on the wings of community theater, a world that has always consumed him.

"I would lie if I said I wasn't a little bit afraid," said Baker, 68, who started his life's newest number with a dose of chemotherapy Wednesday, June 17. "Things are not good at all, but lots of people get over this stuff."

"I may not die," he said.

A new class of drugs shows promise in stopping migraines before they start. The drugs have cut the number of migraines in half among more than 50% of patients in clinical trials — and prevented all headaches for 10% of them.

The drugs target a particular chemical in the body — calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). The chemical helps control blood vessels and plays a role in transmitting pain signals to the brain. Scientists believe CGRP contributes to causing migraines.

The new drugs use something called monoclonal antibodies — made from proteins in the immune system — to reduce the levels of CGRP in the body. The idea is to disrupt the pain messages that CGRP carries to the brain.

This little girl is absolutely overjoyed. It’s her birthday, and she’s celebrating with her father, whose birthday is also coming up. But instead of receiving gifts, this British dynamic duo decided to combine their ages and pay the fun forward with 39 random acts of kindness.

Amélie and her father Lee Beck, spread their generosity on strangers by “granting wishes,” writing letters of gratitude, and doling out adorably decorated pencils.

The father-daughter team compiled a list of possibilities and whittled it down based on their budget. Lee told the Good News Network the goal of remaining anonymous was foremost in their plans. Then, the two took to the streets.

VATICAN CITY -- In a sweeping environmental manifesto aimed at spurring concrete action, Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he described as a "structurally perverse" economic system where the rich exploit the poor, turning Earth into an "immense pile of filth."

Francis framed climate change as an urgent moral issue to address in his eagerly anticipated encyclical, blaming global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor most.

Citing Scripture, his predecessors and bishops from around the world, the pope urged people of every faith and even no faith to undergo an awakening to save God's creation for future gener

How would you feel if you discovered that your Facebook friend was a fake? Possibly not even the same gender you expected? What if the most recent friend request you got isn’t actually from someone real? It's a serious problem.

A person using the Facebook name of Melissa Young is also a fake Facebook account. The person using this account, more than likely, a male, is actually using the photo of famous model Emily Ratajkowski, the photo of which is shown in this story.

Example of fake Facebook account

Many of the fake profile photos are actually professional models as is our example. It's easy to d

Doc the pit bull recently spent what's thought to be the first night of her life snuggled up to a person in bed.

She seemed thrilled with the experience.

"She slept soundly all night and really enjoyed having a home, even if it was just for the night," says Jason Cooke, a volunteer with Animal Charity of Ohio.

Cooke had the pleasure of Doc's company -- but briefly -- because he was bringing this doggie to a TV station in the morning for a spot, with the hopes of helping her find a home where she'll sleep in bed every night. Or, at least, be off a kennel floor.

In the meantime, for that one night: bliss.

Though most of us detest Saturdays spent washing and folding, one mom knows that for those who go without, laundry can truly be a luxury.

Close to 70 people came to a London, Ontario laundromat last month to do three hours worth of laundry -- for free. For the Love of Laundry, a social good startup based in London, has been hosting the events since 2014 to help families in need.

Melissa Power, a formerly single mother who once had difficulty affording basic needs like clean clothes, founded the organization. “I had a hard time making ends meet, so certain "luxuries" often had to wait, and laundry fell into that "luxury" category.” Power told The Huffington Post in an email. “Fast forwa

As the saying goes, it’s quality, not quantity that is important, but this amazing dressmaker demonstrates both.

Lillian Weber recently celebrated her 100th birthday by soaring past her goal of sewing 1,000 dresses for kids in need, FOX News reported.

Since 2011, the centenarian, who lives in Iowa, has been creating handmade garments for Little Dresses for Africa -- a Christian nonprofit that has sent more than 3 million dresses to young girls in 47 African countries and 31 other countries beyond, according to the organization’s website.

Weber has made a new dress nearly every day, the Quad-City Times reported, starting in the morning and completing the garment that same afternoon.

As American Pharoah came out of the far turn and squared his shoulders to let his rider Victor Espinoza stare down the long withering stretch of Belmont Park, a sense of inevitability surged through this mammoth old grandstand. The fans in a capacity crowd strained on the tips of their toes and let out a roar from deep in their souls. It was going to end, finally — this 37-year search for a great racehorse.

No, a battered old sport was looking for an immortal thoroughbred, one worthy to stand alongside Sir Barton and Assault, War Admiral and Whirlaway, Count Fleet and Citation, a horse able to earn the title of a Triple Crown champion.

The Triple Crown trophy, which was commissioned in
