99 balloons eliotBaby Eliot (love that name!) was born with "an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body." His parents, in an act that took an immeasurable amount of bravery, closely documented every day of his short yet miraculous life, ending with a funeral in which attendees each let a balloon into the air (99 in total) for each day Eliot had with his mom and dad.

This video has been a huge view-grabber on the Internet for the past couple of years, and rightly so, although it recently regained traction after Eliot's proud parents were featured on some show hosted by lady named Opera? Ooprah? (Ed note: I believe her name is Oprah.)
