Speaking to a group of people gathered in China, President Obama expressed his frustration at the presence of mass illness in the United States, especially in light of challenges to his healthcare law.
"The ongoing and constant legal and political attacks on America's healthcare system are absurd, ridiculous, and counterproductive," declared Obama as he continued to read the teleprompter. more >>
Her name had become synonymous with the social media hashtag #StillStrong, and that would be an accurate description of the resolve of 5-year-old Leah Still. Still had been diagnosed with Stage-4 neuroblastoma in June of last year. At one point, cancer had penetrated her bones and she was given a 50/50 chance of survival. After a year and-a-half of treatment, however, the little girl has been declared cancer-free.
Leah's father, former Cincinnati Bengal defensive lineman Devon Still, announced Wednesday that his daughter was in remission. The doting dad posted an Instagram message to followers: "Thanks for all the support and prayers! Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)!"
Never let anything get in the way of your dreams, not even a rare bone disorder. That is the message one girl has sent to the world.

Over 40 percent of women who have had an abortion say they were frequent churchgoers at the time they ended their pregnancies and about a half of them say they kept their abortions hidden from church members, new LifeWay Research shows.
In a survey released Monday that was sponsored by the pregnancy center support organization Care Net, researchers from the Christian research group LifeWay found that about 70 percent of women who had an abortion self-identified as Christians, while 43 percent say they attended a Christian church at least once per month or more at the time they aborted their child.
The survey, which interviewed 1,038 respondents who've all had abortions, found that 20 percent of the respondents attended church at least once a week at the time of their first pregnancy termination. Six percent said they attended church more than once per week, while about 54 percent said they rarely or never attended a church. more >>
Many health-related problems Americans face are directly related to hunger and malnutrition, according to a new report by the ecumenical Christian anti-poverty group Bread for the World.
At a press conference on Monday, Bread for the World released its 2016 Hunger Report titled "The Nourishing Effect," which focused on the link between hunger and health.

If faith and perseverance were muscles, then life would be the ideal resistance trainer, and Jase and Missy Robertson would be musclebound.
Toughened by life's tests and trials, the Duck Dynasty couple has cultivated the kind of faith that makes them sure about their family's future. " … Whatever happens, we're confident that God is going to be with us," Missy Robertson told The Christian Post last week in an interview. " … We know it 100 percent."
But that kind of certainty doesn't come easy — it's forged in the midst of adversity. For Jase and Missy, adversity came in the form of health challenges with their daughter, Mia. These challenges have taught them valuable lessons. more >>
