In September 2015, the South Carolina Supreme Court heard oral arguments between the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina and parties representing The Episcopal Church and its loyal members, known as the Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

The 1984 Olympic gold medalist in figure skating Scott Hamilton has had another bout with a brain tumor — his third since 2004. The tumor is benign, however Hamilton says him and his wife, Tracie, are facing the diagnosis with optimism, come what may.
The four-time World Championship winner had testicular cancer in 1997. This year he went in for a normal check-up and doctors found the beginnings of the brain tumor, which had re-emerged, according to People. "I told Tracie, 'God doesn't owe me a day. I'm good. Whatever's next is next.' The blessings keep coming because we allow them and we ask for them."
Hamilton had previously dealt with the same tumor in 2004 and 2010. "I have a unique hobby of collecting life-threatening illness. I survived cancer in '97. Seven years later I was diagnosed with a pituitary brain tumor." After surving testicular cancer, Hamilton felt that the first tumor diagnosis was unfair. "'Great. Okay, that's not fair. I've had cancer — I get a pass for a while,'" he said. more >>
