In this crazy thing called life, we are each given a destiny. For 3-year-old Noah, he was born with a number of complications that would set the course of his life — but not define it. His mother Genesis Emery had a healthy pregnancy and normal delivery but for whatever reason Noah's life would be much different than she imagined. Once he was almost two years old, doctors discovered a unique genetic chromosome that led to a form of Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome.

Although he doesn't carry all of the symptoms, he does endure more than enough. This little boy is a fighter and while he is unable to speak right now, he knows and communicates using American Sign Langauge. A year ago he gained laughter and smiles — something quite remarkable for a child his age with Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome. Each day he grows stronger and more independent as his walking progresses. Noah, we are so proud of you and know we are cheering you on! Embrace this destiny of yours.

Genesis joins our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype to share more about Noah's story and her company The Little Dapper Collection.

Little Boy Dresses Up Like His Favorite Doctor

It's always heartbreaking to see children dealing with medical issues at an early age, but doctors, nurses, caregivers and more can help make this process a bit easier. One doctor certainly made an impression on 4-year-old Vine Larame. Vine has a very rare condition called OEIS which means he's a regular patient of Dr. Cartland Burns at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. This adorable video put together by IU Health shows Vine emulating his idol, and we absolutely love Dr. Burns' reaction when playing it back! Even as a young child, Vine is extremely compassionate and wants to help other kids. He just got approved by Make-A-Wish to build a clinic in Haiti where his family has ties to help other kids get similar surgeries and medical treatments. View Now

Ricky Gervais Gives Us The Lowdown On British Slang

Ricky Gervais is (virtually) sitting down with Vanity Fair for a "chin wag." Sure he's pretty busy writing, producing, directing, and starring in his hit show "After Life" on Netflix, but he finds time for the occasional "bevvy." He's a bit "cheesed-off" about having to postpone some gigs, but if he hadn't, things could have turned out "shambolic." Don't know what any of these terms mean? View Now
