Kaitlin Nguyen from California, was born with a lymphatic malformation, which caused a large deformity on her face, making it difficult for her to talk and eat, Dr. Gregory Levitin, director of the Vascular Birthmark Center at Mount Sinai Roosevelt in New York, told The Huffington Post. The 3-year-old's parents reached out to Levitin to have it removed but the family had trouble covering the high surgery costs.

So, a generous anonymous donor decided to fund it.

The 3-year-old underwent a successful surgery on Tuesday, and is now acclimating to her new life.

“I wanted to say thank you to the donor who made this happen for Kaitlin," the 3-year-old's mother told ABC News, before the su

Decades after graduating high school, a man gave back to a teacher who left a big impression on him.

Almost forty years after she began teaching, Marilyn Mecham received a surprise from one of her first students, Kevin Perz. The former Missouri teacher, who is now 62, recently told the Lincoln Journal Star that Perz called her in January to simply say thanks -- and then sent her a note and a $10,000 check.

"I enjoyed your class so much. You gave your students latitude and respect. In turn, you were showered with respect and appreciation." Perz wrote in the note. "You were the B-E-S-T teacher EVER!!"

The moving gesture left the 62-year-old overcome with emotion.

"When I saw the ch

A nonagenarian just celebrated his birthday, and he was clearly "lovin' it."

Bill Dudley, from Connah's Quay in Wales, recently turned 90, and to commemorate the milestone, he had a birthday party on Wednesday at his place of employment -- McDonald's, BBC News reported.

The shindig, which was complete with balloons and a very appropriate McDonald's-themed cake, ended up being a delightful one for both Dudley and his coworkers.

"We are all incredibly proud to work alongside him as he's such an inspiring member of the team," said Stewart Williams, the restaurant's franchisee, according to BBC. "I look forward to celebrating his birthday again next year."

CHARLESTON, South Carolina - A white cop in North Charleston was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video was released clearly showing the officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man in the back.

33-year-old Michael T. Slager said he feared for his life because the suspect took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. The video clearly shows the officer firing eight times as 50-year-old Walter L. Scott slowly ran away.

Officer Michael Slager shot Scott eight times as Scott has his back to him and is running away. It appears that Scott was unarmed.

Slager is charged with murder, the FBI is investigating, and once again a police-involved shooting has continued

Now that Windows 10 development is in full swing, with the new Spartan browser and new Technical Preview builds appearing on a regular basis, let’s take a step back for a moment and address one of the most confusing things about the next version of Windows. When Microsoft announced its newest operating system, the surprise was not that it was coming, but that Windows would be skipping 9 and heading straight to 10. When asked about Windows 10’s name, Microsoft never gave a clear answer. So why, exactly, is Windows 10 getting the nod instead of 9?

Version numbers, schmersion numbers

You may remember that between Windows 3 and Windows 7, versions of W

Kevin Bollaert, 27, of San Diego, California was charged and found guilty of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion, all relating to his ownership of the now offline websites Ugotposted.com and its sister site Changemyreputation.com.

Bollaert created the site Ugotposted.com which allowed users to upload explicit photos of girls. The practice is known as “revenge porn” as most of the girls who were pictured had scorned the men who posted them. What made Bollaert’s site different to other “revenge porn” sites was that uploaders to Ugotposted had to include explicit details about the girls in question, including names, addresses and Facebook links. The website at times had up to 10,000 ima

ALIQUIPPA, Pennsylvania - Part of the “American Dream” to many of us is home ownership. They are losing their property all too often because of heartless, insensitive laws made by uncaring politicians or county officials.

It's getting more expensive to live in America and when you retire, you had better have enough to pay you property taxes because the county will take it. Much, if not most of Forest Park in the Tualatin Mountains had been owned by people who could not pay their taxes, seized and given to the city of Portland.

Land of the free.

Even if you pay off your mortgage in full, own your home outright, you can easily

We landed on Mars over 11 years ago with our robot mars mission, Opportunity. And what an opportunity is was.

Opportunity landed on the Eagle Crater on January 2004 and accomplished this marathon in 3,968 Martian days or Sols. Available on the NASA site is the path that the vehicle crawled along since 2004. It passed through important Martian craters such as the Eagle, Endurance, Victoria and Endeavour. Last year, the robot became the champion in the longest distance traveled on an extraterrestrial surface by defeating the former Soviet Union’s moon rover called Lunokhod 2.

“This is the first time any human enterprise has exceeded the distance of a marathon on the surface of another wo

Dogs don't usually gather at the funeral home in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico, which is why their presence was so surprising at a ceremony for Margarita Suárez earlier this month.

Suárez spent her life feeding stray animals like dogs and cats in her hometown of Merida Yucatan. After she died, her family held her funeral in a town more than 830 miles away. There, her family was joined by a pack of stray dogs.

Her daughter Patricia Urrutia shared photos of the dogs on her Facebook page, along with a description of what happened. Per a Huffington Post translation:

[M]y mother was a lover of animals, she couldn't bump into one and not give it a little bit of food, sometimes even before [f

DUSSELFORF, Germany - There are circulating reports that a passenger on the fateful flight may have used a cell phone to record video of the nightmarish final seconds of Germanwings Flight 9525.

French magazine Paris Match and German newspaper Bild reported that a video recovered from a phone at the wreckage site showed the inside of the plane moments before it crashed.

"One can hear cries of 'My God' in several languages," Paris Match reported. "Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object. Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than the others, the screaming intensifies. Then nothing."
