Shannon had the flu for about a week and a severe sore throat. Her parents took her to the hospital thinking it was strep but it was not. She had not been eating or drinking anything. The next morning her sister received a call from her father saying that she stopped breathing and her heart had stopped. Paramedics revived her and she was transported to a hospital where they attempted surgery. Tragically Shannon died.

Shannon Zwanziger, 17, first fell ill in early December. Her father, Terry Zwanziger, said the family feared Shannon had more than the common flu and told parents to trust their instincts.

“It was preventable,” he said. “I don’t want it to happen to anyone else. Our messa

A medical mystery that had a family believing their toddler might have a brain tumor, or worse, was finally solved by using new technology at Duke University Medical Center.

Best of all, treatment for the child’s loss of muscle control turned out to be in the form of a vitamin.

Just days before starting chemotherapy for a presumed autoimmune disorder, two-year-old Cara Greene was taken to Dr. Vandana Shashi, a geneticist who was able to pinpoint a rare genetic disorder that would effectively respond to high doses of Vitamin B2.

Veterans of the Vietnam war reconnected a few weeks ago after not having seen each other for almost 50 years. The two old friends lived around the corner from each other for nearly two decades, but didn’t know it.

They grew up in Detroit, got drafted and became friends when they went through basic training together before heading to Vietnam.

They lost track of each other there and never saw each other again. That was until October, when Watson learned that a neighbor he befriended a few years back was married to Brown.

The two old friends lived around the corner from each other for nearly two decades, but didn't know it.

"He came running out of the house and over to the corner,

Joe Riquelme isn't too concerned with ornate Christmas wrapping.

Then again, he says, "Sometimes the best gifts come in the lamest packages." Like a plain white envelope he gave his parents for Christmas, for instance, which informed them he'd paid off their mortgage.

Sometimes the best gifts come in the lamest packages. Happy New Year!

WISCONSIN - 17-year-old Audra Daniloff received a ticket when she was pulled over on her way to school in Wisconsin last month. The girl's father, Marc, had coordinated with the Saukville Police Department to surprise Audra with a trip to see her favorite band, Timeflies.

"I've got some good news, and I've got some bad news for you," the officer said after explaining he had pulled Audra over for rolling through a stop sign. "The bad news first is that I'm giving you two tickets, all right? The good news is that they're probably not the tickets you expect me to give you, OK?"

He then handed over a plane ticket to New York City and another to the concert, where she would meet members of

No one pulls off selflessness quite like Taylor Swift.

The 25-year-old pop star landed the top spot on DoSomething.org'sebs Gone Good list, which highlights public figures who've used their fame to support charitable causes. The advocacy group -- which "makes the world suck less" by supporting numerous grassroots efforts for social change -- noted a donation to New York City schools by Swift, as well as her outspokenness on feminist causes, as reasons for topping the list, which was released on Monday.

As New York Daily News had reported, Swift announced that all proceeds from her single, "Welcome to New York" -- a track off of her new album that climbed to No. 1 on iTunes -- would be

This pup can thank his lucky stars for the firefighters who were dedicated to doing all they could to reunite him with his worried owner.

Last Friday night, Eva Routs of Houston, Texas, was having dinner when her dog, Onyx, followed a small animal outside and disappeared. When the pup didn't show up after she called out to him, Routs went in search of Onyx and heard his cries coming from under a neighbor's porch. Her dog was trapped.

A desperate Routs sought the help of social media, and eventually the Houston Fire Department's special technical rescue division stepped in, bringing Onyx -- who by then had been trapped for 48 hours -- to safety.

"They did this out of the kindness of

The highlights:

- This year we saw a four-decade trend continue, with child mortality rates falling for those under age five. And it’s falling faster than anyone expected.

(CNN) -- The children of an elderly West Virginia couple who passed away months apart in late 2012 and early 2013 are blaming their deaths on a restaurant chain's meatloaf. Mark and Ann Starcher say a tainted meal that their parents shared from a local Bob Evans restaurant in October 2012 made them so "violently ill" that it ultimately led to their deaths, according to a lawsuit they've filed against the Ohio-based chain.

According to the complaint, about nine hours after consuming a meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli and a roll, Virginia Starcher -- who went by "Ginny" -- "fell violently ill" shortly before Harold Starcher "also became violently ill but was able to ca
