    When we first got certified with therapy for Rojo, I thought 'oh this will be fun,' the first visit that we did, Shannon had him on the lead, and was taking him into a rehab facility. And I was kind of on his backside with all the nurses, and as she would take him in along the bedsides, I would hear them getting so excited. They said 'wow, Herald hasn't spoken in a month and I heard him say he's cute!' Or, 'look, Helen is trying to sit up and she hasn't moved for weeks.' Every room we were going in to, it was like seeing miracles happen.

  5. Andrea Fishkin:

    Fishkin told Fox News. SCIENTISTS DISCOVER POTENTIAL CURE FOR GRAY HAIR Fishkin said her mother started going gray when she was 18, so she knew there was a good chance she would follow the same silver path. After 12 years of dyeing her hair every four to six weeks, Fishkin decided to accept her silver tresses. I get compliments every day, it really makes me who I am. I love the brightness of it, I think it really matches me really well. Women like Fishkin are not alone in their silver journey. Celebrities like Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren were some of the first to embrace full silver. And now younger women like Kendall Jenner, Pink and Lady Gaga have followed suit. We’re talking about the last five years the silver trend has been going on, and I'm amazed at how many women actually look really great with silver hair, Massey said.
