Young Neighbor Invites Ailing 89-Year-Old Woman to Move In

Even though 31-year-old Chris Salvatore and 89-year-old Norma Cook are vastly different ages, they are the perfect roommates for each other – and the best of friends. The duo first met about four years ago when Chris moved in across the hall from Norma. “After a couple weeks of saying hello through her kitchen window that looked out onto our apartment complex courtyard I decided to knock on her door and enter Norma’s world,” says Chris, who is an actor living in Los Angeles. “I soon learned that she had no family of her own living here in California, was suffering from a long list of health complications, including leukemia and just that week she had to give up her car because she lost her ability to drive.” MORE: Grieving Man Can Sleep Again After Girl Reaches Out in the Grocery Store The two grew steadily closer as Chris continued to volunteer for tasks involving her home and medical care. “I would help her cook meals, drive her to the doctors, banks, pharmacies and even just recently I got the amazing experience to accompany her to vote. We had such a blast these past few years filled with so much joy and laughter.” His assistance was needed more than ever when Norma’s health rapidly started to decline over the last six months. She was hospitalized several times for pneumonia, asthma attacks, and sustaining nasty falls in her apartment. The bleakest news came when doctors said that unless she was given 24 hour care at home, she would be sent to a state care facility. Chris created a GoFundMe page which raised over $75,000 for private care — and, most importantly, invited Norma to live with him so he could look after her and cut her out-of-pocket costs. After the two became roommates, they realized it was a perfect match. “She loves it! I do most of my work at home so I am here most of the time to care for her, so it only made sense to the both of us.” “She is my adopted grandmother, after all, and I am her grandson she never had.” Even though 31-year-old Chris Salvatore and 89-year-old Norma Cook are vastly different ages, they are the perfect roommates for each other – and the best of friends.

Police Officer, Student End 911 Call in Funky Dance Competition-Watch

When Officer Jarrod Singh received a call from a citizen reporting a fight, he was expecting to bust some crime – not bust a move. But when he arrived at the scene in Toronto, he found eight students from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in the middle of filming a music video. “I saw eight people gathered around one person, so I can see how a member of the public thought it was a fight,” Singh said in a statement released by the Durham Regional Police. “But when I got closer I could see he was break dancing in the middle and there was someone filming it.” RELATED VIDEO: Dancing Cop Builds Friendships at Black Lives Matter Cookout Though the youths had been filming a teaser video for an upcoming dance competition, they were nervous at the sight of the approaching police officer. Then Singh mentioned that he had also been a hip hop dancer in college. After one of the students asked if Singh could show them some moves, the scene turned into an epic dance battle that has since gone viral.
