Actors Fund Home - Final Resting Place of Dody Goodman

At The Actors Fund Home in New Jersey, Dody Goodman, the comedian died yesterday. She was in Grease and many other movies and tv shows. Dody Goodman was a great actress, that lived a good, long life. She is one of the many talented people that lived at the Actors Fund Home.

Acting is a one of the greatest art forms in our culture. It is something that everyone dreams of doing at least once in their life. The Actors Fund Home is a place for professional actors and anyone involved in show biz to live when they are older and in need of special care. A lot of their money comes from donations. The actors fund home has housed many of the countries talent over the year.

I think that a lot of the people that donate to the actors fund home are actors or tied to the acting profession. I think that they are in a way trying to help them out because some day, they might end up staying their, and it is good karma to donate to places like that.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of the great Dody Goodman, and all of the retired actors living in the Actors Fund Home.

Petero Byakatonda Miracle Surgery

Petero Byakatonda was born with a rare genetic disorder that affected the development of his brain. Because his skull fused together, his brain kept growing in the direction of least resistance, which is up, and caused his head to take on a cone shape. It is sad to see someone look like this.

Petero Byakatonda was taken to Dallas to be given a surgery to help rebuild his skull to give his brain room to grow and save his live. After the surgery, Petero Byakatonda looked a lot better and was no longer in danger of losing his eyesight or life. It is great to see someone start a new life after they have been living their life looking and feeling different.

The disease that Petero Byakatonda has is Crouzon's Disease, which is an extremely rare genetic disease. During his dangerous surgery, he was practically given a new head. They had to rebuild his skull to save his life from dieing.

Shauntel Mayo Guilty

Shauntel Mayo, the woman responsible for the horrible crime of forcing her underage siblings to perform sexual acts for viewers at a strip club, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Her sisters, which were not even teenagers yet, were forced to have sex with each other in front of an audience. The children also were given drugs.

I think it is horrible that Shauntel Mayo would do something like that. People are supposed to love and care for their younger sisters, not exploit and abuse them. Especially since Shauntel Mayo is a woman, you would think that she would be sensitive to the idea of sexual abuse and would not even think of doing such a sinister crime.

I am very sorry to hear what happened to these poor girls. I hope that Shauntel Mayo stays in prison for a long time. I don't understand how someone could do something like what she did.
