I wanted to let the zerebny family and doctor zerebny, his father and her father know that our thoughts are with them, and hopefully they can come together as a family and get through this.

So zak as you could hear..

Both these teams want to get out there and play a great football game to show there support the way they know how... palm springs will be wearing this special decal tonight and palm desert high school decided to donate all of todays proceeds from admssions and donations to our day of giving fundraiser going on right now for the familes of the fallen.

Today, there are nearly thirty million americans living with rare diseases; that's almost one in ten of us.

A disease affecting fewer than 200 thousand people is considered rare.

With nearly seven thousand rare diseases - the numbers add up dramatically.

I'm patricia richardson and when my father was diagnosed with a rare disease, my family learned firsthand how overwhelming it can be to find information and the right treatment - if one even exists.

It can be a lonely fight.

You've probably never heard of most rare diseases with hard to pronounce names like myeloproliferative neoplasms, or progressive supranuclear palsy, which claimed my father's life.

My dad was a navy fighter and test pilot.

His brave struggle inspired me to join the national organization for rare disorders to raise awareness of the challenges faced by people with rare diseases and their families.

Nord works to ensure that these individuals are never alone, providing answers and support.

Alone we are rare, together we are strong .

Anthony's on my team.

No, he's on my team!

Anthony?

Five.

Good answer!

Anthony, will you sit here and play for me?

Sure!

Yes, anthony is wanted everywhere.

Well, almost everywhere.

Because recently when anthony went with his parents to find a new place to live... it's already rented.

I just spoke to this guy a half hour ago.

How can his parents tell him the color of their skin is keeping them from this apartment?

It's not just unfair, it's illegal.

I'd like to file a complaint.

So anthony's parents filed a housing discrimination complaint and now they have a wonderful place to live.

If you've been trying to buy or rent a home or apartment and you believe you've been discriminated against because of your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability, call hud at 1-800-669-9777 or visit hud.gov/fairhousing.

Fair housing is your right.

Weekend two of desert trip kicks off tonight with bob dylan and the rolling stones taking the stage again.

Last week -- thousands of people complained of major traffic problems -- that forced them to miss the beginning of the concert.

News channel three's joe galli is with our live mobile newsroom in indio near the polo grounds -- with a live look at traffic -- and how indio police has made changes to make things move more smoothly tonight.

Joe -- as you can see i am at this intersection and there is this amount of traffic.

Indio p-d says tonight should be much better than last week.

Security guards and police officers directing traffic ahead of the start of weekend two of desert trip.

Last friday thousands of people complained about traffic getting into the empire polo grounds.

Hundreds complained on social media that they missed much of bob dylan's set while sitting in traffic.

Concert goers this weekend are arriving early just be safe.

We got a house rented over here and we came early to hang out at the house for a while and there was not traffic coming here.

From what i hear last weekend it's going to be pretty bad before it's over with.

The indio police department say changes have been made to the way people will be parking.

Instead of trying to fill one lot at a time --- drivers will be directed to the closest lot if traffic builds up -- freeing up the street.

We thought we had some ideas and you really don't know where the marbles are going to go until you spill the marbles so we made some adjustments and saturday went perfect and sunday went perfect we are keeping with the same plan.

The indio police department is also trying to make things easier for parents picking up their kids from mountain vista elementary school they will be making sure shuttle buses won't be passing by when school lets out.

Police officers will also be cracking down on people illegally using handicap plackards that don't belong to them -- to get a better parking spot.

If you are out there and you are coming to the festival and you have grandma's plackard or dad's plackard just go park in the ga it is close enough.

We have the walking paths all set up you will get close enough to the venue.

According to the indo police department says people who took cabs or ride services like uber didn't have any problems last weekend and should be fine this weekend.

Last friday doctor carreon blvd was closed between monroe and jackson.

They opened that road up to help alleviate traffic.

With a trough deepening across the west coast with a strong jet directed across northern california, onshore flow will continue to strengthen this weekend, with cooling continuing and the marine layer deepening up to 4000 feet saturday night and 5000 feet sunday night.

Thus, expect night and morning marine layer stratus to fill the coastal basin, obscure coastal slopes and penetrate into the mountain passes, with only partial clearing during the day.

As a dying atmospheric river moves south and gets directed towards southern california , models show some light precipitation/dr izzle occurring along and west of the coastal slopes saturday night/sunday morning and possibly a little bit more sunday night/monday morning.

Any shower activity should diminish by late monday morning, with skies partially clearing and cooling continuing.

It will also get windy in the mountain passes/canyons, mountain ridges, desert slopes and adjacent wind- prone desert areas, particularly saturday night/sunday morning when local gusts of 50-60 mph could occur.

However, winds are not expected to be quite strong enough to warrant a wind advisory at the moment.

Surface high pressure starts to strengthen over the great basin, which will produce weak offshore flow late tuesday which will clear out the marine layer and bring some warming and drying.

The surface high strengthens significantly wednesday into thursday, resulting in moderate to possibly strong offshore winds which, in tonight on our sister station c-b-s local 2.

The only thing better than playing a hero in the movies, is being a hero in real life.

Like the 50,000 veterans who returned from iraq and afghanistan with devastating injuries.

They are true heroes.

And they're why i'm proud to support paralyzed veterans of america.

For more than 60 years, paralyzed veterans of america has made a promise to never leave a fallen comrade behind.

They make sure veterans with spinal cord injuries get the quality medical care, rehabilitation and housing they need when they come home.

They stay with our fallen heroes for the long term, offering counseling, job training and support to help them regain the freedom and independence they fought so hard for.

All at no cost to them.

Our veterans fought for us.

Let's fight for them.

We will never leave a fallen comrade behind.

One of my most rewarding experiences as a dietitian has been actually quite recently just a year ago when i met donna.

Because she was so motivated and ready to lose weight and to get healthier.

Well since i met sue and listened to her guidance i've lost about 80 pounds and i have been taken off almost all my medications.

To me, i mean that's something to shout about.

I think for r nna the biggest change has been what's happened up here her perspective on food, nutrition, fitness has just changed dramatically.

She looks at food differently, she thinks about food differently and the fact that nutrition and exercise, there just a routine part of her life.

I just see the future getting better and better and better.

Because i'm getting healthier and healthier and healthier.

It's just been a whole life change and i don't want to ever go back to the old ways.

All of us want to make a difference.

As veterans, we committed to protect our country.

We served and sacrificed for the things that mattered most.

Those experiences shaped our lives.

Now we're husbands, wives, parents, and friends.

And sometimes we forget that the biggest challenge can be asking for support.

The veterans crisis line is here for veterans.

Dial 1-800-273-8255 and press 1.

It matters.
