Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .
1. A groundbreaking new gene therapy is allowing children born deaf to hear for the first time. Five of six kids in a clinical trial were able to have conversations with people after six months.
They were all born with a specific genetic condition, so it’s not a cure-all. But it could be an approved treatment for some people in three to five years.
2. A bride in San Jose, California called off her wedding at the last minute, and couldn’t get a refund on her $15,000 reception. So she donated it to a charity called Parents Helping Parents that supports parents of kids with special needs.
They threw a party for 100 people and called it the “Ball for All”. It had a DJ and dancing . . . a photo booth . . . and included dinner with a ton of desserts. (It happened last month, and “Fox News” did a big story on it.)
3. A 34-year-old warehouse worker in England named Danny Turney recently impressed his friends with a spot-on Elvisimpression. During the pandemic, his wife secretly recorded him singing in the kitchen and uploaded it to Facebook.
He started getting calls after that from a number he didn’t know, and eventually called back. It turned out one of his buddies sent footage to a talent agent . . . and Danny’s now working as a full-time Elvis impersonator, making $500 a night.
