Hearts melted earlier this week when this heartwarming video starring a young cancer patient and her nurse became a viral phenomenon. The video stars Kamryn, a 7-year-old battling Kidney Cancer and her nurse, a former Penn Stater and avid THONer, Tom Shelley lip syncing to the classic tune “Love is an Open Door,” from Frozen. What started as a simple way to cheer Kamryn up during a trip to the hospital for a blood transfusion soon gained national attention when Kamryn's mother and biggest supporter uploaded the video to the #TeamKamrynn Facebook page on July 3.

Penn State alumnus Joe Machi, born and raised in State College, is hilarious. He's also currently competing on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," and doing quite well for himself -- he's advanced to the top 10 of the comic-search show.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will look a little different when he returns to the field this season. He shaved his head as an act of solidarity for his daughter, Leah, who was diagnosed with cancer. She begins chemotherapy soon and will most likely lose her hair.

Ross Holland's HUB wheelie is the wheel deal (I'm sorry). As I type this, it is on its 46th hour, and it has obliterated the previous wheelie world record of 10 standing hours. We got to ask the wheelie maestro 10 questions.

He had a pizza crawl named after him, so it only made sense that coach Herb Hand had a hand (see what I did there?) in last night's Father’s Day special of "Chopped" on the Food Network. The endearing offensive line guru went head-to-head with three other fathers on the hit show to the delight of fans of novelty.

Balance is one of the many fundamentals of life. It's a life-saver, gravity-tester, and all around great idea, really. It's also been one thing that senior Ross Holland, set to challenge the world record for longest standing wheelchair wheelie today, has always been good at.
