Watch As This 5-Year-Old Cancer Fighter Refuses To Let Her Dad Carry Her Up The Stairs

“She will sprint again”

There are few things more difficult than having to watch a young child fight an illness. But when they do, they can serve as a powerful inspiration to all of us. We could all take a lesson in perseverance from this girl, five-year-old Darran Dunlap. The daughter of a Pittsburgh sports radio host, Colin Dunlap, Darran shows us all what dedication and toughness look like off the field.

Colin tweeted out proof of his daughter’s resilience while suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy to treat her leukemia. As you’d imagine, little Darran is frail and exhausted from the notoriously draining treatment, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to rely on others for help. On her way up the stairs to bed, her dad offered to help her up the stairs due to her weakened state.


But she wasn’t having it, as this video shows:

He shared the video not just as a testament to his daughter’s strength, but as inspiration for anyone who’s feeling exhausted or overwhelmed:

He concludes with this moving message:

Darran’s fight has made her a local celebrity in Pittsburgh, having received this wonderful gift from Pitt running back James Connor last month:

A local CBS affiliate recently wrote a feature on Darran, so it’s clear that she’s got an army of people rooting for her in her fight.

We can’t wait to see her “sprint again,” as her dad promises she will.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
