Iowa three-year-old battling a rare liver cancer is looking good after receiving three donor organs.
It has been a rough couple of years for little Evie Fairman, but things are finally looking up. At two, she was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a rare type of liver cancer that only one in a million children have. She’s had chemo, but the cancer returned. And now, after a long fight, she’s just had a triple organ transplant that should leave her cancer-free.
The three-year-old from Iowa is recovering from a liver, small bowel, and pancreas transplant and everything went well and doctors think little Evie will be moved from intensive care soon. She’ll need a few more rounds of chemo, but things look positive.
“For her to have these organs, some other parents had to lose a loved one and it is because of their compassion that Evie is able to get this chance,” says her mom, Taylor Fairman. “It’s something to admire … Someone that has compassion and kindness to truly help others when they are going through a loss.”

A Florida couple knew from the day they found out about the seven siblings in separate foster homes that they were going to be part of their family.
They always knew they wanted to adopt a child one day, but DaShoan and Sofia Olds of Marianna, Florida never knew their family would be so large. But when they heard about seven siblings living in separate foster homes, the couple decided to adopt them all so they could be one big, happy family.
“We looked at each other and said, ‘We’ve got to do this. It’s time. There’s no maybe, we have to do this,'” Sofia says.“It was a done deal from the day we saw the story.”
And now they’re the proud parents of Dava, Erica, Eric, Zavian, Leondras, Reginald, and the oldest, 12-year-old Necia. She says, “We thought we would never be adopted.” But now they’re all part of the Olds family and life is good for these brothers, sisters, and their new mom and dad.

- Donnie Wahlberg has been leaving big tips across the country.
- He left a $2-thousand dollar tip at a Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina.
- He also gave fellow diners tickets and backstage passes to the New Kids on the Block show.
Attention, waitresses – if Donnie Wahlberg comes into your restaurant, make sure you’re nice to him. He’s clearly on a tipping tour. Last month, he gifted the overnight crew at a Waffle House in Edgewater, Maryland with $5-hundred bucks.
This time, the New Kids on the Block star left a $2-thousand dollar tip on an $82 dollar bill at a Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina. He explained yesterday’s random act of kindness with, “My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens!”
As if that weren’t enough, Donnie also gave some of his fellow diners tickets and backstage passes to the NKOTB show.
