Since Eyewitness News aired a story about a woman's cancer returning while pregnant with twins, many of you have reached out online in support of that family. People often wonder why families share those stories with us, and most often it's to warn others. That's exactly what happened in the KWCH newsroom Friday. News Director Brian Gregory decided to have his own worrisome spot checked at Moeller Dermatology in Wichita after seeing the story. The clinic agreed to let our camera tag along.
Wichita has lost out on a potential Major League affiliation, as the Elmore Sports Group announces it will move its AA San Antonio Franchise to Amarillo, TX.

The Elmore Group announced Wednesday they are moving their AAA affiliate in Colorado Springs to San Antonio.
A local Lyft driver says she was inappropriately touched by passengers and was forced to draw her weapon in self defense. Now, because of that weapon, Lyft says she can no longer drive for them. Tuesday, she spoke with Eyewitness News about the situation that has her upset. On her first night driving for Lyft, a woman who asks that we only use her first name, Coumba, decided to take another fare. "It's Memorial Day Weekend, and people will be out drinking. I can bring people home safe," she says.
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".
