It was task that took some time after he was diagnosed with spina bifida when his mother, Donna, was 21 weeks pregnant. In fact, most tasks are daunting for Hunter. He has endured 19 surgeries and has learned to walk again three different times. Hunter may look like a typical 8-year-old, but he battles his birth defect daily. "It's very hard to see him stand up and fall, stand up and fall," Donna said through tears. "And then that one day when he gets it, it's just the best feeling."
By looking at Karin Puckett and Chianti Brown, you would think the two women have been best friends for years. Yet they have only known each other for a few short months. “Pretty much from the moment we exchanged numbers, we became inseparable," said Puckett, mother of newborn baby Jhan Gregory. The two bonded while at CHRISTUS Highland’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after the unexpected early births of their baby boys. Puckett gave birth to Jhan Gregory at 27 weeks.
A 9-year-old Shreveport boy is using swimming to lessen the side effects of Autism Spectrum disorder. “I like to swim,” said Luke Smith. “We swim the whole length of the pool.”For several years, he has been swimming using CHRISTUS Swim.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
