    As a baseball player there's very few feelings better than hitting a home run. I hit a few in my past...a long long time ago. Billy had the time of his life while rounding the bases. He plays in The League Of Yes on Long Island. The League of Yes has a mission to establish and sustain baseball programs for people...of all ages...with disabilities.

    When Billy hit his home run, he rounded first. At second base he flexed and pumped his arms. Rounding third he went through a tunnel of supporters and headed for home. Before he got there, Billy stopped. Then he went into some dance moves. League of Yes volunteers surrounded home plate. After Billy touched home, the volunteers all fell down.  Here...take a look. 

    Founder of the League of Yes, Kristine Squitieri Fitzpatrick says Billy thinks he's famous. She says the big hope is that other towns and states might form a leagues like League of Yes.

    I love stories like this!

    May is a month that brings awareness to a lot of things. One of those things is Melanoma. That is the worst type of skin cancer and can be very dangerous. 

    The sun is shining longer. This month is a great reminder to wear sun protection and to get cancer screenings. I remember as a kid I played in the sun all the time and never thought about sunscreen. Truth is...sunscreen should be worn anytime you are out in the sun for any length of time. 

    I have never had melanoma. But about a year and a half ago I went to the dermatologist for something totally unrelated. As the doctor was looking at me, he saw some spots he wanted to biopsy on my face. No problem! Well they came back positive for basal cell carcinoma. That's a slow growing cancer that is not necessarily life threatening, but could grow into it. So I had them removed. This picture is an example of what they had to do on my nose. It was a pretty amazing process if you ask me. About two months ago I had to have another minor spot scraped off my back. So now I go in every 6 months to get checked. 

    If you haven't had a screening, it might be a good idea to get checked out.

    Taking precautions and early detection can nip skin cancer before it spreads.

    This is one of those stories that melts your heart. Four-year-old Bella Graham lost her mom, Jessica, two years ago. Bella lives in Edgewater, Florida and has been cared for by her grandma Laura Fisher. What would have been Jessica's 30th birthday was coming up and Bella was concerned that mommy wouldn't have a birthday cake to celebrate in heaven. Since grandma is a part time baker she thought of sending a cake to heaven. She said thousands of letters are sent to the North Pole every year, and heaven can't be that much farther. 

    Laura created a vanilla and red velvet birthday cake. Bella helped decorate it. A heads-up was given to the Edgewater Post Office. Bella addressed the cake box: From Bella To Mommy in Heaven. The staff even opened a special line when they arrived to mail the cake and assured them that the cake would arrive before mommy's birthday.

    Grandma Laura says the staff at the post office was a God send for a child shipping a cake to heaven.
