WATCH: Lauren Hill shares the incredible story of her battle against brain cancer

By now, you've probably heard of Lauren Hill. In November, The Mount St. Joseph freshman was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, but she hasn't let the diagnosis stopped her from living her dreams. Lauren made headlines this week after she fulfilled one of her lifelong goals by playing her first college basketball game. She joined Glenn Thursday night to share her story, one filled with optimism and hope despite the incredible challenges before her.

During her senior year, Lauren experienced several odd symptoms that led to her going to get checked out at a doctor.

"And I had asked to go to each doctor, like the eye doctor and the ear doctor, and then finally we ended up just going to the doctor doctor, because I wasn’t playing as normal as I was playing. My senior year, my playing was sloppy, and I was out of shape. As the weeks went by, I didn’t get in shape, and that was just an odd thing. So we had to go get that checked out, and I expected it to be a concussion or something, but it was a tumor," she explained.

"I remember being shocked, but my parents were really sick to their stomachs. I remember I just started spewing out questions right away, like how are you guys going to help, and what are we going to do to stop this tumor, and how are we going to slow it down? When they, you know, say that it’s inoperable and there’s nothing they can do about it, it really hits you, and it hits home. It’s kind of like just standing there and have the rug pulled out from underneath your feet and slamming against the ground and being left breathless."

When faced with this kind of devastating news, some may choose to wallow in despair. Others, like Brittany Maynard, have chosen to end their own lives at a time of their choosing before the degenerative effects of the disease ruin their bodies. But Lauren has embraced a different path.

"There was a January night where I wasn’t feeling, I was not very happy, and I was kind of feeling really negative and just not positive at all, and I was wondering why this was happening. You know, because we always question when we get diagnosed with cancer, a terminal diagnosis, why me, why my sister or whoever?"

"I remember when I was asking why, I just decided that it doesn’t matter why it happened, and I guess I just accepted it as my journey, and I told God that I would speak for the little kids that couldn’t speak, because not a lot of people know about DIPG. And the kids that are diagnosed with DIPG, they tend to lose their voices and can’t express their symptoms like I can, and so I decided that I’m not fighting for myself. I’m going to start fighting for others, and that’s what makes it kind of easier to keep moving on is to fight for others and not for myself."

"I feel like my life is meant to make an impact, like maybe that’s why I was sent here. That was my job that God gave me was to be a voice and make an impact and hopefully raise research money for DIPG and get cancer solved because just all cancer needs to go away."

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
