In a time where everything seems so, so bad, there are glimpses of happiness and hope. There are so many people offering to help others, help to our key workers, neighbours and even strangers. These acts of kindness aren’t being reported much so we plan to scour the world for good news stories and share them on here – feel free to raise a smile and share. Good News Today:

A mother who gave birth while battling Covid-19 on a ventilator has beaten the virus. Megan Sites, 27, underwent an emergency cesarean section to deliver her son at 29 weeks and six days this month as she battled the deadly virus on a ‘near-last resort’ ventilating machine that replaces the heart and lungs of a patient. She now credits her medical team and the treatment for saving her life after she said her husband was told she had less than a 40% chance at survival. After ten days, Sites was finally able to see her baby, named Jameson, who is still in the hospital although doctors said he is healthy with no signs of coronavirus.
