So instead of hearing about the cure to cancer and how to make a million dollars overnight, you’ll have to settle for such topics as trying to fool an old man for free museum admission, our feelings about carnies and we get...

“For better and for worse. In sickness and in health.” These are words that are vowed at most weddings across the U.S. but how seriously do we take these words? What would you do if you woke up in the middle of the night to a non-responsive spouse or significant other, only to find out they had suffered a stroke and were now paralyzed on one half of their body, all at the age of 27?
