Helping a Family in Need

Diane Aulger and Family

After overcoming a battle with stage 3 colon cancer, Mark Aulger, 52, was suddenly diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis (PF), an often-terminal scarring of the lungs that obstructs the flow of oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. At the time of Mark’s prognosis, his wife, Diane, was carrying their unborn child. On January 16, 2012, Mark’s pulmonologist estimated that Mark had only five or six days left to live.

Having surpassed 37 weeks of pregnancy, Diane’s OB/GYN determined that baby Savannah’s lungs were developed, and Diane elected to schedule an induction at 38 weeks, so Mark could see his infant daughter before his time ran out. Savannah was born on January 18, shortly before Mark slipped into a coma. Five days after Savannah’s birth, Mark passed away, holding his newborn daughter in his arms.

Three months after Mark's untimely death, Diane joined The Doctors to share her story of perseverance, hardship and lost love. Donations to help Diane and her five children can be made by clicking the DONATE NOW button below. For more on Diane's tragic story visit

A Love Story

This was kind of a fun, feel good story that I found in the newspaper this morning.  It's nice to have good news to read about instead of all the sad and depressing news which there is plenty of!

For a bride on her wedding day the morning is usually reserved for personal wedding preparations, getting hair beautifully coiffed and perfect makeup in place in anticipation of that trip to the altar.

But for Shannon Beasley, 35, Saturday morning began well before 6 a.m. as she joined her fiance, Colby Louis Beal, 25, for stretching and warm-up in anticipation of the open water swim, bike leg and finishing run. Makeup was replaced by beads of sweat as the pair took part in the 4th annual Daybreak Triathlon.

"It's crazy, it is definitely crazy, it may have been a bad idea," said Beasley a few days before the triathlon and wedding ceremony.

Together with close friends and family from the wedding party, the couple embarked on a 750 meter sprint swim, the 23.5K bike race and the 5K finish to the triathlon, all before the planned ceremony in the American Fork Amphitheater Saturday.

Kindness in a Track Race

When I heard about the act of kindness this young girl performed in her track race, I was amazed and overcome with emotion.  What a wonderful act of kindness!

Meghan Vogel might have won the state title for the 1600 meter race, but the track star is probably receiving more attention for her extraordinary act of kindness toward another competitor.
After winning her event on Saturday, the Ohio teen was participating in the 3200 meter race when competitor Arden McMath fell just meters from the finish line, the Springfield News-Sun reports.
Vogel soon came to her aid, carrying the fallen runner to the end of the track, where she guided her across the finish line -- ahead of herself.
