Earlier this month, our own Charity Bailey shared the powerful story of her sister’s battle with alopecia. Elisabeth “Libby” Barnett was diagnosed with the hair loss disease when she was 12. After years of trying to cover her condition, she finally made the bold decision to shave her head!

After her story aired on RightThisMinute, we got a huge response as both women and men offered support and shared their own battles with alopecia. One of the responses came from a grandmother, who is determined to raise awareness and share the story of a beautiful little girl named Lyla.

The World's Tallest Teen Is Also The Sweetest

At 7 feet 8 inches tall, 19-year-old Broc Brown's already inches taller than basketball legends Shaquille O'Neal and Yao Ming! Growing an average of six inches every year, he's on track to becoming the world's tallest man! Being this tall has serious medical implications. Even though the genetic disorder he was born with causes extreme growth and complicates simple things like feeling "full" and finding shoes that fit, Broc's a gentle soul. "Patience" is his motto as Broc lives out the complicated reality of his never-ending "growth spurt." UPDATE: Feetz is giving him his very own pair of custom 3D printed shoes in Feb. 2017!

Hey, I'm Swampin' Here! & Born An Hour Ago, Already Walking

If we saw a crocodile hanging out in our favorite watering hole (yes, we have a favorite for the purposes of this scenario) we'd happily choose a new watering hole. Elephants, on the other hand, nobody tells them to go somewhere else. The adult elephants have a problem slight pushing the crocs away so the calves can play in the water in peace. View Now

We Love Our Dogs, Despite Their Weird Quirks

Dunkin is a fancy dog who only eats fancy meals. Room-temperature kibble? No thanks. He refuses to eat his food until it's put in the microwave for a couple seconds, because apparently, that turns it into people food. Next, one woman wanted to see what her dogs would do if she collapsed. So she fake falls, and what do the dogs do? They think it's play time. We don't think they even noticed her. via ViralHog View Now

Even the simplest of film projects can take a lot longer to create than you might think. For example, Matt Bray spent a year and a half creating a four-minute dancing video but we think it was time well spent. Matt traveled the world and danced with over 1000 strangers for this fun music video. We only wish we were involved too! via ProjectOneLife View Now

These Two Images Are The Same Sculpture

French artist Matthieu Robert-Ortis not only bends wires in order to create his incredible sculptures, but he also bends minds as well.

Our brains can barely comprehend how to look at these amazing works, let alone figure out how he crafts them. View Now
