After appearing in a wheel chair last week, Lauren Hill stood on her own Tuesday before a crowd of students at Mount Saint Joseph University. She came to thank them for turning out for her first collegiate basketball game and raising funds for The Cure Starts Now Foundation.

The University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute is taking a cue from television in its bid to research and treat cancer.

The owners of Cincinnati's Tom + Chee had an idea to turn their grilled cheese restaurant into a larger franchise operation. They went on the TV show Shark Tank and eventually got the funding they needed to make that dream come true.

The University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute is taking that idea and applying it to cancer research.
