Warning: don't watch this video if you don't have a box of tissues handy.

Claire Lankford, 5, of Dickinson, Texas, is battling a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma.

There is no cure for the disease and her family is determined to cherish every moment they have.

Like many 5-year-olds, Claire is a big fan of princesses and fairy tales, so a family friend decided to give her the royal treatment in a big way.

Claire's "Princes Parade" was complete with a marching band, cheerleaders and a horse-drawn carriage ride down a street lined with hundreds of friends, neighbors and supporters.

Claire wore a princess gown provided by a local bridal store and even her parents got in on the royal fun - her mother dressed as Belle and her father as Prince Charming.

Oops! Nestle's bad!

The company recalled  its "Philly Steak and Cheese" and "Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese" Hot Pockets this week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture deemed the products unfit for human consumption.

USDA regulators said the company processed "diseased and unsound animals" without a full federal inspection.

In a press release, Nestle said these Hot Pockets were distributed nationwide and that "a small quantity of meat" from Rancho Feeding Corp. - which recalled 8.7 million pounds of bad beef last week - is to blame.

Kevin Grow, a Pennsylvania teenager who has Down syndrome, signed a two-day contract with the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers this week. Why?

The high-school senior and decorated Special Olympics veteran had served as the manager for Bensalem (Pa.) High School's basketball team.

He never got the chance to play during his four years on the job until this month, however, when coach John Mullin put him in during the fourth quarter.

In the team's penultimate game, Grow notched a free throw, a steal and a basket. The next night, Mullin put him in again, and he proved it was no fluke.

Coming in for the final two minutes of the game, Kevin Grow nailed four three-pointers, including a buzzer-beater, on his way to a game-high 14 points!

His feel-good highlight reel went viral, and on Monday, the 18-year-old standout signed a two-day contract with his hometown Philadelphia 76ers.

Judy Cox is taking a stand.

The Orem, Utah resident was shopping with her 18-year old son yesterday when she strolled past the window of a PacSun store.

It displayed graphic shirts as part of the company's "Visual" line that Cox found truly horrifying.

"The bottom of one woman is completely exposed, uncovered and it's a very provocative pose that she's in," said Cox. "Clearly it was offensive and I was most concerned about the youth and the children that would be viewing this."

So how did Cox respond?

It looks like someone has been watching too many Justin Bieber surveillance videos.

An unnamed manager of a Pizza Hut in Kermit, West Virginia was caught on tape this week peeing into the kitchen sink.

As a result, health officials have temporarily shut down the restaurant and the man has been fired, with Pizza Hut Corp. releasing a statement that says it was "embarrassed" by the incident and has "zero tolerance" for violations of this nature.

Which is nice to know.

This anonymous worker enters the pantheon of memorable firings, which includes a cop who was let go for cutting off a detainee's hair and a Papa John's deliveryman who left a racist voicemail.

Balloon Boy. Remeber him? On October 15, 2009, the country was captivated by Falcon Heene, the boy floating away a balloon ... or so it seemed.

His parents, Richard and Mayumi Heene, who had appeared on the reality show Wife Swap one year prior, frantically alerted authorities to this crisis.

A giant weather balloon they were in possession of was accidentally released from their property with their 6-year-old inside. A media circus erupted.

Local officers were dispatched. A National Guard helicopter was launched. Air traffic controllers halted all area takeoffs. All to rescue Balloon Boy.

Only when the balloon landed, no boy was found in it. Instead, Falcon Heene had been hiding in the attic of his parents' garage. The entire time.

Public concern quickly turned to suspicion, fueled by the boy's comments on CNN that it was "for the show," i.e. a future reality show his folks pined for.

When the Church of Satan wants nothing to do with you, that's a sign you likely took it too far, whatever it is you were doing. Such is life for Miranda Barbour.

The self-proclaimed serial killer is defaming the group's name and reputation, the high priest for the Church of Satan believes. Seriously. She's pure evil.

Barbour, a.k.a. the Craigslist Killer, confessed to committing between 22 and 99 murders, saying the Devil compelled her to kill after she joined a cult.

High Priest of the Church of Satan Peter H. Gilmore says this is B.S.

He can't vouch for her cult claims, but he says that the official Church of Satan has never had any involvement with her, nor would they. Ever.

Gilmore tells TMZ that true Satanists don't believe in murder (not even sacrifices), and if Barbour is truly a murderer she should be given the death penalty.
