John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer
John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer, days after he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye.

When Families Can’t Afford Their Child’s Funeral, Patricia Quinn Is There to Help
For Philadelphia funeral director Patricia Quinn, helping bereaved families bury their children is tough enough.
