More than five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease or some form of dementia. Statistics show that one in three seniors dies at the hands of this terrible illness.
Common symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s go far beyond just memory loss. Sufferers can also experience confusion, changes in behavior, hallucinations, and problems with communication. The ordeal is often frightening and confusing for those who are afflicted. There is currently no cure for dementia, but there are treatments that can help patients manage their symptoms.
While the disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, funding for Alzheimer’s and dementia research is quite limited. To help spread awareness, two young men decided to share the story of their mother’s struggles.
What they have to say is something we all need to hear.

We comply with Kidcation tester Kaylia and her sibling as they experience the Family members Club at Grand Riviera Princess in Mexico first hand. From cruising on a catamaran, to getting their hair intertwined, to wallowing in the swimming pool; there's no scarcity of fun to be had for the ladies.
I’m just going to come right out and say it. Burps are gross. However, if I had a baby who laughed this hard at a burp, I’d keep doing it, too!
This baby’s sense of humor needs a little work, but as of right now, there’s nothing funnier than the sound of Dad’s burps. The author of “Peter Pan,” J.M. Barrie, wrote, “When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”
Sound a little too romanticized? Listen to this sweet baby and see if you change your mind.
With each and every beltch, Dad is rewarded with the most delightful giggle. Mom’s not in the video, but we’re pretty sure she’s laughing right along with all of us!

Do you remember a time when you may have been sent a love letter? Or even last time you received a handwritten piece of mail from a real person? Probably not. Thanks to email and texting, the amount of genuine person to person mail correspondence has pretty much gone the way of the dinosaur. But Matt Adams over at “Someone You Love” is on a mission to bring it back to life. According to his website, the project aims to “bring New Yorkers together by engaging them in positive activities in the unexpected places.” For the second installment of his three-part series, he asked New Yorkers how long it had been since they wrote someone a letter, then challenged them to change that. Take a look and the heartwarming result.
“At one point throughout the day, it got so crowded that there weren’t enough places to sit and people were waiting to take part in our activity. “
You can check out more random acts of love on Matt’s website…after you write a letter to your mother. And be sure to share the love with friends using the link below!

But after some time, Kunkush finally found his way back to them.
What an epic journey! Let’s hope that they never have to be apart again.

There are endless treasures to be found in our grandparents’ attics. While digging through these family heirlooms and artifacts, we’re lucky if we come across a few tattered photos from the war, or a chipped teacup from an old collection. Although substantial finds may be few and far between, these relics help us piece together the stories of our lives.
But one man hit the jackpot one day while rummaging through his grandparents’ things. What he discovered sent him on a stunning journey back in time.
He found a perfectly preserved film of his grandparents’ wedding that dates back to 1944.
Although this footage was captured decades ago, the affection shown by these two lovebirds is timeless.
My Grandparents Wedding :: 16mm from 1944 from bliss* productions on Vimeo.
Grandparents are often viewed as the pillars of the family. They’re seen as sage, wizened monuments to everything that younger generations stand for. It’s rare that we get to peek behind the curtain and marvel at who they were before we were born, and now that this man has stepped back in time, he will be able to move forward with a whole new perspective on who he is and where he came from.

Remember that terrifying feeling of being in trouble when you were a kid? That was the scariest thing of all, because letting Mom and Dad down (and getting caught) was completely awful.
But when this little boy gets in trouble, he doesn’t contest it. He just freezes in fear, and it’s super adorable. Even Mom can’t help but giggle!
I hope this boy doesn’t get in trouble too often, otherwise he could be frozen for a long time! That wouldn’t be good for anyone.

Mother’s Day and the 2016 Summer Olympics are right around the corner.

Get some tissues ready, because you’re going to need them.
We here at ViralNova just want to say thank you to moms everywhere. There’s nothing quite as special as a mother’s love.
