You know how everybody has that one cause that hits really close to home for them? This is it for me. I lost my cousin Kim in the Spring of 2008, when she was just 30 years old. The culprit? Breast Cancer. If you want to help fight this terrible disease, or learn more about how to spread awareness - check out Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

A couple was lucky enough to obtain pictures of their proposal after a photographer stumbled upon the scene while hiking in Washington.
Mel Reyes got down on one knee and asked Jordie Egbert to marry him when they reached the top of Rattlesnake Ridge in North Bend, Wash.
They probably felt very alone in the wilderness, but they weren't, and that might have been a good thing.
Geoff Parker, a photographer, was hiking with his wife when she pointed out the couple. The two were out celebrating their first anniversary.
"My wife yelled from behind, 'Hey, look over there,'" Parker said. "Down a little further was this couple. I took a couple photos, and then they stood up and hugged and kissed."
Once he and his wife got home, he was determined to track down the couple.
"I don't have that with my wife," he said. "It was a special moment, it was sweet."
It didn't take long for the Internet to find the couple. Parker posted it to his Instagram and to Facebook, where his friends shared it with their friends, and the sharing kept going until two days later when Egbert saw the photo.
"I was hanging out at my mom's house and my sister came running over to me," she said. "A family friend of ours that lives in Washington, her friend that lives in Germany had re-posted it not knowing who I was. People were just posting it trying to find me."
She then got in touch with Parker and thanked him.
"She sent me a really sweet email thanking me so much for the images and for trying so hard to find them. She cried all day," he said.
Though some have criticized Parker for watching their special moment, Egbert said she was happy he was there.
"He said he doesn't have that kind of picture from when he proposed," she said. "To him, it was something special. He was living through us. He wanted at least someone to have a picture of that special memory. It was a good gesture. He did it for us."
He probably claims he didn’t do it, but if he did it would look like this.
Buffalo Bills fans are noted for their unwavering support of a franchise that frequently disappoints. The team hasn’t been to the playoffs in the past 13 years.
In addition to the constant pain and frequent disappointment, Bills fans also have to battle the snow-filled Western New York winters, as well endless ridicule from fans of every team in the NFL.
But no matter how morbid the outlook for the upcoming season seems, the fans remain steadfast.
They’re known for not giving a f*** about what anyone thinks, feels or believes.
But no Bills fan has ever given less f***s about what anyone thinks than this superfan, Bryan LaBarron. Who will forever be known as the man who got the mugshot of Naked Gun star, former Bills great and current resident of Lovelock Correctional Center O.J. Simpson tattooed on his left thigh. Below the tattoo you'll see his thoughts on the Juice’s alleged criminal acts.
Even Juice himself thought this was a questionable decision.
Gov. Chris Christie, the cast of the Jersey Shore, and the band fun. all came to ribbon cutting ceremony Friday to reopen the area, which was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
The Jersey Shore boardwalks in Seaside Heights and Point Pleasant Beach have been closed for the last seven months.
Friday morning the area finally reopened, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was filmed for NBC’s Today show and hundreds people from the community came to watch.
Governor Christie will be acting as “promoter-in-chief” for a series of events all weekend, hoping to boost tourism in the area.
The band fun. was there to celebrate. A tweet from @wesleyjoliver says:
@todayshow's @EricaRHill and @OurNameIsFun's Jack Antonoff take a lovely stroll on the beach. #TODAYatJerseyShore
Vinny and DJ Pauly D from The Jersey Shore, of course, stopped by.
New Jersey suffered $37 billion worth of damage from Hurricane Sandy, with 360,000 houses and apartment units affected.
Not all of the area is back up and running, however, areas like Casino Pier are still being restored.
Friday morning’s ceremony ended with a fun. concert. Fun.’s guitarist Jack Antonoff is originally from New Jersey.
And then the whole event ended in a legendary moment for New Jersey history:

Reason #1.: Because it's Friday. And Reason #2.: Because I love Oreos.
1. The first Oreo cookie was made in 1912 at the original Nabisco bakery in New York City (the factory is present day Chelsea Market).
2. Two flavors originally debuted in 1912, original and lemon meringue. (That sounds SO GOOD!!)
3. The origin of the name Oreo is unknown, but the leading theory is that the name was derived from the French word “Or”, meaning gold (the early packaging was gold tin).
4. The first Oreo cookie was sold in Hoboken, NJ. (Home of the Cake Boss!!)
5. The cookie-to-creme ratio of an original Oreo cookie is 71% to 29%.
6. Over the years it has gone through several name changes:
1912: Oreo Biscuit
1921: Oreo Sandwich
1937: Oreo Crème Sandwich
1974: Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie
7. In 1950, they created their very first advertising slogan, “Oh!, Oh! Oreo!”
8. Double Stuf Oreos were introduced in 1974.
9. Big Stuff Oreos were introduced in 1987, and were about 10 times larger than a regular Oreo. They were discontinued in 1991.
10. They became kosher in 1998.
11. 50% of all Oreo eaters pull apart their cookies before eating them. Also, women twist them open more often than men.
12. In 1998, they introduced Oreo’Os cereal. The cereal was discontinued because Post and Kraft are no longer co-branding. Post owns the recipe to the cereal and Kraft owns the rights to Oreo. What a shame. My favorite cereal. EVER.
Hey, Amanda! Get it together girl! Amanda Bynes was arrested Thursday night after she allegedly threw a bong out the window of an apartment in Midtown in front of cops at about 7:40 p.m., The New York Post reports.
According to the Post, “staff at the Biltmore on 47th Street near Times Square” saw Bynes “smoking some substance from a bong in the lobby and called police.”
“When cops went to the door of her 36th floor room, she allegedly chucked the bong from the window as they watched, sources said.”
Well, this will be cool. Muse, whose music is being used in Paramount's World War Z, will perform for 15,000 fans after the premiere of the film on June 2 in London.
In an unprecedented marriage of a full-scale concert and a film premiere, Muse will perform at Horse Guards Parade Ground, St. James’s Park, after the film screens in London’s Leicester Square. Tickets for the live performance will be available May 28 at www.worldwarz.co.uk/MUSE.
The filmmakers are using about 14 minutes of Muse music in the film, mostly the song Isolated System throughout the film. Muse's music will be used in trailers on all platforms. The only soundtrack release, however, will be for Marc Beltrami's score.
"It made the movie feel and sound really cool," Randy Spendlove, Paramount Pictures' President of Motion Picture Music, said. "After we layered in the music, we reached out to their management in the U.S. (Q Prime) and the U.K. (Anthony Addis) to see how we could reach beyond the movie. We wanted (the relationship) to be bigger than that."
Paramount will film the concert and expects to make footage available soon. Jimmy Kimmel is among the talk show hosts Spendlove expects to see in London reporting the events.
Isolated System and other music from Muse's latest album, The 2nd Law, are featured in the film opens in theaters June 21. Starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos and James Badge Dale, the story revolves around a former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane (Pitt), who races around the world trying to stop a pandemic that is threatening to decimate the human race.
It seems impossible, and very unfair at the same time. How do these celebs look SO GOOD, so many years later?? Just like Halle Berry, click here to check out pics of celebs who never seem to age.
Five missing Oklahoma tornado victims have been found alive it was revealed today, ending their families' heartbreak and giving other residents of Moore some much-needed good news as they begin to rebuild their lives.
The happy development, however, comes as authorities release the names of all 24 people killed in the terrifying twister that barreled through the heavily-populated suburb of Oklahoma City on Monday, with Rick Jones, 54, William Sass, 63, Gina Stromski, 51, Randy Smith, 39, Leslie Johnson, 46, and Richard Brown, 41, the latest victims to be identified.
As of Wednesday morning, six people were still unaccounted for after the monstrous storm but Moore Mayor Glenn Lewis delivered the heartwarming news this afternoon that five of them have been found safe. However, he also revealed that one of those reported missing didn't survive the carnage.
It's unclear whether that person, whose body was located at the Medical Examiner's Office, is among the 24 deaths reported as their name has not been released. The lucky people who were found alive have also not been identified, though one is believed to be 10-year-old Plaza Towers Elementary student Aubrey Crook.
Earlier on Wednesday, 10 children aged between four months and nine years, and 14 adults aged between 29 and 65 have now been identified as the victims of Monday's tornado as the desperate search for those among the rubble came to a close and residents and volunteers began the long and difficult work of recovery.
'We are, we hope, in the recovery stages now,' Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin told CNN. 'It's going to take a while to get through all this, and we certainly are making a plan to move by stages.'
On Wednesday morning, officials released names of 16 of the 24 people killed by the monster storm, adding that one person has yet to be positively identified and eight names were being withheld until their families are notified of the deaths.
They named Megan Futrell, 29, and her five-month-old baby, Case Futrell, who were killed in an obliterated 7-Eleven store. Four-year-old Karrina Varygas and her baby sister Sydnee Vargyas, who was seven months, were also killed by blunt force trauma injuries when their house was ripped apart.
Victims of the tragedy:
Six-year-old Christopher Legg, was tragically killed when the tornado struck Plaza Towers Elementary School on Monday
Leslie Johnson, 46, pictured with fiance Tewauna Robinson, 45, was also killed
Megan Futrell, 29, died at a 7-Eleven with her baby and she leaves behind two other children
Kyle Davis died at his elementary school
Hermant Bhonde, 65
Nine-year-old Janae Hornsby was killed by the tornado at her elementary school in Moore
Eight year olds Sydney Angle and Nicholas McCabe died at their elementary school from mechanical asphyxiation
Tewauna Robinson, 45, also lost her life after the tornado hit her home close to the elementary school, her family said
Shannon Quick, 40 (right), was killed in the tornado and her eldest son, 13-year-old Tanner (left), was injured. She leaves behind her husband and another son, 8
And, a little happiness in the midst of tragedy:
She looks like she's really bored. Maybe even sleeping. BUT SHE'S NOT.
