Before playing for Michigan state, Austin Hatch survived two plane crashes, events which took the lives of his parents and two siblings. After recovering from a medically-induced coma and his numerous injuries the University of Michigan honored their original basketball scholarship and he hit the courts this week.

Last year Tom Schutt of D.C. was undergoing treatments for his cancer, resulting in his hair loss - and a pretty great Jean-Luc Picard costume. Now that he's in remission, he can sport a Riker look!
Bring a tissue before you read this one:
We found out that she was his sweetheart, his wife who passed away 5 years ago. They met at 17 but the war had kept them apart. He had searched for her for 10 years and one day as he was telling his barber the story, the barber calls his daughter in and it ends up being her. They were married instantly and it lasted for 55 years until she passed. He takes her photo everywhere. On one side of the laminated photo it's him and her sitting on a couch together and on the back it has a photo of him and her side by side when they were young. Goes to show you true love does exist.
