A dancer recently diagnosed with breast cancer received a surprise duet with Jewel at Jewel's concert on Thursday. And here come the tears...


Angela Trimbur, an actress and dancer from LA who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, got a "beautiful, life-affirming pick-me-up" after Jewel invited her up on stage to perform side-by-side.


A friend of Trimbur's, Sarah Utterback, wrote to Jewel, saying "Trimbur always loved playing her music after dance workshops" and that Trimbur played Jewel's "Hands" in the last workshop she taught before her double mastectomy.

"It was a deeply moving and emotionally raw moment in a room with 80 women, rocking in a circle, turning to each other, placing their hands together in prayer, bowing, seeing, honoring each other and themselves," Utterback wrote. "Angela creates moments like this, and for this, I would like to create a moment for her."


We'd say Jewel's response, inviting the girl up for an emotional duet, was more than perfect.








In a time of great suffering for many, we hope this story can start the healing.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
