It's the outcome no parent ever wants to hear — your child has a fatal disease. That's the reality Jen and Samir are facing after learning their 6-year-old son Carter has Sanfilippo Syndrome. Nicknamed a "Childhood Alzheimer’s," Carter will lose the ability to talk, swallow, walk, develop seizures, suffer severe dementia and die, unless a clinical trial gets up and running.

Mom-To-Be Hears Late Father's Voice During Gender Reveal

We've seen all types of gender reveals here at RTM, but this may be one of the most sentimental ones. Ana's mother Jennifer Jones-Prothro is pregnant and wasn't planning on finding out the gender of the new baby unless her husband really put something creative together. It turns out, her loving hubby James went above and beyond, piecing together voice recordings of Jennifer's late father Charlie revealing it was a girl. Charlie passed away a year ago and always liked to be surprised by learning the gender of Jennifer's children, so this idea was especially poignant, according to CNN. my mom is pregnant and didn’t want to know the gender unless my dad found a creative way of letting her know... so he put together clips of my granddad’s voice (who passed away a year ago) to announce it to her :’) pic.twitter.com/wYV2GMDHeW — ana (@anaxyoung) August 23, 2018 View Now

Bird Comforts Woman Visiting Her Son's Grave

Sometimes we just need a sign. For Marie Robinson, it's been three long years since she lost her 4-year-old son Jack to brain cancer, according to The Dodo. While visiting his grave to mark the anniversary, she had an amazing encounter that has made her believe his spirit does live on. While sitting near his grave, she felt a robin (how similar to her last name) fly onto her shoe, showing no fear. It then perched directly on her finger. Marie also sees this as a sign that we need to bring more awareness to those suffering from a brain tumor or cancer and also bring light to the struggle parents face when they lose a child. View Now

It's always difficult to understand why people, especially children, have to deal with cancer. Kennith "Clutch" Thomas' 15-month-old son Kristian was recently in the hospital for 32 days after being diagnosed with leukemia.

After finding out that Kristian could finally go home from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, dance instructor Kennith wanted to celebrate. Taking inspiration from his son's battle and singer Ciara, Kennith set out to cheer up and entertain Kristian to the tune of Ciara's new song "Level Up."  Kennith and wife Josilyne also coincidentally have a dance studio named "The Level Brand."   When you wake up to your sons number LEVELS UP!! And we get to go home for a few days as he is killing CANCER!!

The song is a dance and personal challenge, asking those taking part to think of three ways to better themselves in life. Kristian has already proved himself to be a warrior though, and we are completely inspired by the strength of the entire family!   My can’t take it watching this proud Father @KennyClutch_ dancing doing the #LevelUpChallenge because his baby’s numbers were up.
