A critically ill 12-year-old Seattle girl was able to forget her worries at a Jonas Brothers concert, thanks to a mystery donor.
For the last five months, Jessica Walker has been at Seattle Children's Hospital, battling a brain tumor. She's had 20 operations, and with each procedure, she loses of bit of herself. She can no longer walk, speak or move. And those around her watch helplessly.
But thanks to that donor, Jessica and her family watched the Jonas Brothers perform Sunday night at the Tacoma Dome. It took some work to get Jessica there, but her parents say it was well worth the effort. Jessica's eyes described what her voice and body cannot.
Seeing her smile and her eyes just going huge — it's like we're getting a piece of our Jessica back," said Cheryl Walker, Jessica's mother.
"We really didn't know and think Jessica would ever be able to anything like this — go to the concert. This is huge," said Scott Walker, Jessica's father.
Not only did Jessica take in the concert, she also got to meet the Jonas Brothers before and after the show.
"She wants the Jonas Brothers to see her for who she is, so she's not wearing a wig," said Cheryl Walker.
Her parents say this was just what the doctor ordered.

Four U.S. soldiers were killed in combat on the eve of the withdrawal of American troops from Baghdad and other Iraq cities, the U.S. military said, as Iraqi forces on Tuesday assumed control for security in urban areas.
The U.S. military said the four soldiers served with the Multi-National Division-Baghdad but did not provide further details pending notification of their families. It said they died as a "result of combat related injuries."
The withdrawal that was completed on Monday is part of a U.S.-Iraqi security pact and marks the first major step toward withdrawing all American forces from the country by Dec. 31, 2011. President Barack Obama has said all combat troops will be gone by the end of August 2010.
The Iraqi government has named June 30 "National Sovereignty Day" and declared a public holiday.
President Jalal Talabani said the day could not have happened without the help of the United States, which invaded Iraq in 2003 and ousted Saddam Hussein — who was later convicted by an Iraqi court and executed in Dec. 2006.
"While we celebrate this day, we express our thanks and gratitude to our friends in the coalition forces who faced risks and responsibilities and sustained casualties and damage while helping Iraq to get rid from the ugliest dictatorship and during the joint effort to impose security and stability," Talabani said.
Describing June 30 as a "glorious page" in Iraq's history he warned that "security will not be achieved completely without proper political environment and without a real national unity and reconciliation."
Iraq marked the day with an overnight display of fireworks, while thousands attended a party in a park where singers performed patriotic songs.
The midnight handover to Iraqi forces filled many citizens with pride but also trepidation that government forces are not ready and that violence will rise. Shiites fear more bombings by Sunni militants; Sunnis fear that the Shiite-dominated Iraqi security forces will give them little protection.
If the Iraqis can hold down violence in the coming months, it will show the country is finally on the road to stability. If they fail, it will pose a challenge to Obama's pledge to end an unpopular war that has claimed the lives of more than 4,300 U.S. troops and tens of thousands of Iraqis.Four U.S. soldiers were killed in combat on the eve of the withdrawal of American... more

Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is quite possibly one of the best attractions Disney’s Imagineers have created during the theme park’s history. From the tombstones surrounding the mansion’s decaying exterior to its cobwebbed interior, the whole ride creates a pitch-perfect atmosphere of gothic glee. This year the attraction celebrates its 40th Anniversary. To commemorate the milestone, one of Disney’s favorite artists, Shag, has been commissioned to create original artwork inspired by the ever popular attraction.Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is quite possibly one of the best attractions... more

OBAMA, Japan (Reuters) - Temple bells tolled, fireworks were set off and residents danced the hula in the cold Japanese city of Obama on Tuesday to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama, who will become the first black U.S. president.
The party began several hours ahead of the inauguration ceremony in the sleepy fishing town in western Japan, which has turned into the nation's leading cheerleader for Obama.
Over a hundred Obama fans flocked to a local Buddhist temple to celebrate the inauguration in Hawaiian style, as a tribute to Obama's birthplace.
A group called "Obama Girls and Boys," made up of seven local men and 15 women, danced the hula while others joined to sing a song dedicated to Obama and the city of Obama.
"I've been waiting for this day for so long. We are very happy for President Obama -- the new world leader," Chikako Shimizu, who heads the "Obama Girls," told Reuters.
Some said they could party on forever in the freezing weather.
"We are going to party all night until morning to celebrate the inauguration," said 67-year-old local Rian Obata as she danced to Hawaiian music.
The town's local souvenir shop welcomed tourists with "I Love Obama" signs and sold a variety of goods ranging from Obama sweet bean cakes to Obama chopsticks.
Barack Obama has known for some time about the small town that bears his name. Last year, the town's mayor received a thank you letter from Obama for sending him chopsticks and a Japanese good-luck charm.
Obama, 47, is set to take the oath of office at 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday. While he rides the optimism of millions of people into power, he inherits a recession and two wars that will test his skills.OBAMA, Japan (Reuters) - Temple bells tolled, fireworks were set off and residents... more
