Luke Ericson may look like an ordinary bodybuilder with great physique and amicable strength. But if you look closely, you would notice that something is different.
Luke only has his left arm to aid him in his daily activities. He is also missing some parts of his left lung. These conditions has led to the development of severe scoliosis. Furthermore, he has type 1 diabetes since he was a child. With all these conditions, who would have thought that Luke can survive, and on top of that, be a great athlete?

Doctors Told Veteran He Could Never Walk Unassisted. He Proved Them Wrong!
His journey to recovery will leave you in TEARS!
Most veterans encounter several problems once they return from service. They may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or from injuries that can leave them disabled for the rest of their lives.
Such was the unfortunate fate of Arthur Boorman, a former paratrooper and a veteran of the armed forces. He had suffered from back and knee injuries that made him depend on walking assistants and wheelchairs for movement. The doctors gave up on his case and he was told that there was nothing else that they can do for him. He was encouraged to accept this sad reality and move on with his life.
Fortunately, Arthur was not a man who knows how to give up. He opted to focus on DDP Yoga, a program that was invented by Diamond Dallas Page, who is a former professional wrestler. With the help of the DDP Yoga Program, he slowly and painstakingly got back up to his feet....
Hot Cocoa Project Of an Eight-Year-Old Pays Back The Hospital That Saved His Best Friend.
This is his way of showing gratitude for having his friend back.
An eight-year-old boy named Tristan Regini meant no monkey business as he took his home town Denver, Colorado by storm in raising funds that served as a token of thanks to the hospital that saved his best friend’s life.
It has almost been a year when Cade Humphreys, Regini’s best friend, took a blow that seemed impossible to surpass. This eight-year-old kid was diagnosed with Cancer. Since then, the Children’s Hospital Colorado has been his playground. After a series of medical treatments, finally, he was cured. And so, to Regini’s obvious delight, he took the initiative to repay the hospital by donating all proceeds from his business.
The young entrepreneur set up a hot cocoa stand right in front of their facade where people not only get to enjoy a hot choco but also gets the chance to give a heart for the needy. Although the soft opening was only held last February 28, the nonprofit cocoa stand has already been able to raise over $3,000. Since then, his charity project has drawn the attention of both local and international news gaining an additional $400 on a weekend alone after being aired. ...
A Young Lady Found That A Child Was NOT Breathing. What She Did? Truly Heroic!
I would have panicked…
I've always wondered what I would do if I'm in a public place and a medical emergency arises. Would I be courageous enough to step up and try to help save someone else's life? Well, a high school student named Abby Snodgrass proved that she would.
While shopping at Walmart one evening, Abby Snodgrass heard a commotion down at the electronics section of the store. Apparently, the mother of an 11-month old child realized that her daughter stopped breathing and was desperately trying to revive the child.
The store manager immediately phoned 911, and reported that the child had no pulse and was not breathing. They were all waiting for the emergency responder vehicles to arrive, which were still minutes away from the store, when Abby approached the scene. Abby, who had also been enlisted as a National Guard, safely performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the infant. According to Abby, the child was not breathing for approximately one minute. But despite her worries and concerns that the CPR might not be effective, she continued the resuscitation until the child was able to breathe again. ...
