After Rebecca Schmitt’s mother Sandra was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and received a bone marrow transplant in 2012, life changed for their family. The two went from living in a 4,000-square-foot home in Port St. Lucie, Florida, to being broke and evicted because Sandra couldn’t keep working as a realtor during her treatment.
The major status changes really affected Rebecca, but she hasn’t let that keep her from succeeding. The pair now live in Atlanta, where she’s number one in her class, with a 4.2 GPA and she’s captain of the tennis team. Sandra is still getting treatments, but her daughter says she’s inspired by her mom’s positive attitude during the tough times.
"I learned to focus on the positive tools that we have instead of the challenges in life. I began to view the world through a different lens," Rebecca explains. "I realized that I had much to be thankful for, and that I had potential."

Pennsylvania restaurant is offering a 10% discount to families who enjoy their dinner without using their cell phones.
Customers at Sarah’s Corner Café in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania who want to unplug and enjoy a meal together are rewarded. The restaurant has “family recharging stations” at tables where you drop your phone and enjoy some interactive games like Hangman and Tic Tac Toe, and doing it will earn you a 10% discount on your bill.
Owner Barry Lynch says he got the idea after watching his customers and observing the parents and kids staring at their screens instead of talking to each other while they’re sitting face-to-face. He’s gotten a positive response to his phone-free meals and plans to keep it up.
“I just thought it was such a shame not to have more time together just to talk,” he says.
“A lot of people are starting to do it and it’s taken on a life of its own.”
