Human of the Week – A Regular Guy

Human of the Week, Officer Down

As you know, picking the Human of the Week is a chore for me. Before I talked to Jeff I had decided that I would pick law enforcement as the collective Human of the Week. After I talked to Jeff, I wasn’t so sure. I spent an emotionally difficult week thinking about this story and […]

Leukemia Warrior Gets Human of the Week


Yesterday, I told you Bella was awaiting CAT scan results for a lump that was growing in her throat. Luckily, it was just a swollen lymph node. Powerful statement – “just a swollen lymph node”. Nothing is just anything when your child is battling a deadly disease. Everything becomes a potential set-back, a sleepless night […]

Lupus Has a New Queen


There she is, don’t tell her 9-year-old daughter she has a crown or Darcy will suddenly find it missing! Darcy is Human of the Week, no brainer. I talked about Lupus, she talked to me, she’s in. Don’t get all crazy now, it’s not as simple as being sick. You’ve got to have a little […]

Human Jarhead of the Week

Jars of Hope

So, what have we learned this week? Men do cry. Brian fills the Jars of Hope with toys and tears, just kidding. Sort of. He does cares, a lot. If he didn’t would he spend his spare time filling jars and sending them to sick children around the country? Would he get excited when he […]

Human Officer of the Week

Officer Down

By now, Steve is curled up in a ball in his basement rocking and crying; wondering why he didn’t win Human of the Week. Sorry, Steve! You won but I got busy with Memorial Day and planning my next great blog post. Think of it this way – your fame now lasts longer because people […]

Looks Like A Winner To Me…

  Here we go again! Another family, another Human of the Week. This gets harder and harder. Choosing just one person never seems fair, but since I am limited to the number of magnets I can afford, I’ve got to narrow the candidates! This week’s choices were Lisa, Liz and Annalise. After much thought, and encouragement […]

The Crown Goes To…

Mitochondrial Disease

Welcome Back to Human of the Week! I’d ask you to guess who you think won but I realized that you can tell just by looking at the picture. Duh! So who is that good-looking couple? That would be Dawn and John, ah, cute, it rhymes! But who are they? They are the parents to […]

Human of the Week – Another New Twist?

Human of the Week, The Missing Niche

  Hey, hey! It’s Saturday! Time for Human of the Week!! FYI, when I type that each week, in my head it is a booming voice with music in the background and an echo, it’s pretty cool. Too bad this wasn’t a radio or TV show. Oh, if it was, I would totally have confetti […]

Narcolepsy’s Human of the Week

Human of the Week, The Missing Niche

It’s time for Human of the Week! Thursday I told you this week’s HOW would be a little different than usual. How so? Well, let me tell you! Typically, I choose the HOW, there is only 1 and I post a cute little picture of them wearing a crown. This time, Thomas chose the HOW, […]
