25-year-old Rachel Wolf always dreamed of the day she would get to dance with her father on her wedding day. But her father, Dr. James Wolf, has less than three months to live.

So a few weeks ago, Rachel, who isn’t even engaged, put on a beautiful white gown and got her hair and makeup done as if she were preparing for her wedding day.

In a “Today” show interview that aired yesterday, Wolf explained that she wanted to pre-record a father-daughter wedding dance so that James, who is dying of pancreatic cancer, could in some way be there on her big day.

“There are a lot of things that I would’ve liked the girls to experience with me being there,” an emotional Dr. Wolf said. “And I’m not going to be there.”

Rachel and James shared an unbelievably touching dance to Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Cinderella” at Auburn Recreation Park in Auburn, California.

Preschool Girl Finds A Xanax Pill Inside One Of Her Easter Eggs

Roseville, Michigan, sounds like the most bizarre place in the world as a preschooler brought home a plastic egg that had Alprazolam (the generic brand for Xanax) inside. Maybe it was a gift for the parent since this occurred during an after school activity at Huron Park Elementary where parents and children came together to […]

Why Good Guys Need To Expect More From Modern Women

Living in New York has enlightened me to many things about the world. One, people don’t seem to give a crap about the homeless. Two, you can’t use a restroom in this city without buying something. And three, too many good men are settling for lesser women. Now, before you go off on your tangent about […]

Love Is A Decision, Not An Accident: Why We’re Going About Love All Wrong

I never really bought the idea of “finding love.” It’s closely tied with the idea of love at first sight. You meet someone and you fall in love, hence finding the love. Yet, I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard anyone say they fell in love at first sight. Sure, on TV and in movies, […]

This Reporter Just Shut Down Every ‘Expert’ Covering MH370 (Video)

If there’s one lesson we learned today, it’s to not mess with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. Clearly sick of being surrounded by people who have no idea what they’re talking about continuing to speculate about the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Brzezinski says enough is enough. “Can we go to news school for a second, please?” […]
