A lot of celebrities give selflessly to important causes. But the real question is, can they dance?

For WWE superstar Daniel Bryan, the answer is a definitive "Yes! Yes! Yes!"


This week, he posted a video of himself to Twitter using the hashtag #JustKeepDancing, which was created earlier this year to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research.


Whether you're a wrestling fan or not, this is definitely worth a watch.

And the story behind his goofy tweet is even more worthwhile.

But first, some color commentary on Bryan's dance moves.

You have to love Bryan's commitment here. This is no stiff-hipped Macarena. Bryan attacks his song of choice (Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy," of course) like one of his in-ring opponents, including a dramatic entrance.

Aaaaand pauses for effect:

Then the three-time WWE heavyweight champion starts with a devastating 360 arm twirl.

Followed by a crushing, side-shuffling finger wag.

A short celebratory march, for good measure.

And finally, he breaks out his finishing move: twirling kung-fu hands.

Someone ring the bell because this one is over.

Of course, we know wrestling is fake, but to young kids around the world (OK, and some adults, too) athletes like Bryan are real heroes.

Bryan posted the video in support of one small fan in particular, Connor "The Crusher" Michalek, and his foundation, Connor's Cure.

Connor, a fervent WWE fan and a big fan of Bryan's, passed away from a rare brain tumor at only 8 years old — but not before being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and capturing the hearts of many of his wrestling heroes.


"If you talked to Connor, you couldn't help but fall in love with him," Bryan says on the Connor's Cure website.

The American Cancer Society estimates over 10,000 children under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer this year.

With enough awareness and funding, aided by big-hearted celebs like Bryan, Connor's Cure hopes to put pediatric cancer out for the count.

From the time she was a little girl, Abby Recker loved helping people. Her parents kept her stocked up with first-aid supplies so she could spend hours playing with her dolls, making up stories of ballet injuries and carefully wrapping “broken” arms and legs.

Recker fondly describes her hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as a simple place where people are kind to one another. There’s even a term for it—“Iowa nice”—describing an overall sense of agreeableness and emotional trust shown by people who are otherwise strangers.

Driven by passion and the encouragement of her parents, Recker attended nursing school, graduating just one year before the unthinkable happened: a global pandemic. One year into her career as an emergency and labor and delivery nurse, everything she thought she knew about the medical field got turned upside down. That period of time was tough on everyone, and Nurse Recker was no exception.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

We're dancing along too.

Art can be a powerful unifier. With just the right lyric, image or word, great art can soften those hard lines that divide us, helping us to remember the immense value of human connection and compassion.

This is certainly the case with “Pasoori,” a Pakistani pop song that has not only become an international hit, it’s managed to bring the long divided peoples of India and Pakistan together in the name of love. Or at least in the name of good music.

Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas teaches you how to pee.

A pelvic floor doctor from Boston, Massachusetts, has caused a stir by explaining that something we all thought was good for our health can cause real problems. In a video that has more than 5.8 million views on TikTok, Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas says we shouldn’t go pee “just in case.”

How could this be? The moment we all learned to control our bladders we were also taught to pee before going on a car trip, sitting down to watch a movie or playing sports.

The doctor posted the video as a response to TikTok user Sidneyraz, who made a video urging people to go to the bathroom whenever they get the chance. Sidneyraz is known for posting videos about things he didn’t learn until his 30s. "If you think to yourself, 'I don't have to go,' go." SidneyRaz says in the video. It sounds like common sense but evidently, he was totally wrong, just like the rest of humanity.
