Here is an excerpt from that conversation:
"Having cancer opened so many doors for me. You get through the muck then you realize what you have and what you can do.
I think surviving cancer is in the same realm as what Leo's (former Michael Vick dog) life was like. Going through the muck and coming out the other side. Leo and I are survivors, getting through what you have to get through and having the courage to go on.
As a former patient at the cancer treatment facility I can say that Leo brings so much joy during treatment. You're going through the treatments in order to survive and your just joyful and uplifted to have him visit you. He's so gentle and sweet. Just petting him takes you out of where you are. He makes me feel so good. He makes people smile and it's just a great feeling.
Thank you Our Pack for taking something out of a negative and putting it into positive, just like I did with cancer."
Cancer survivor & Leo's patient
There was a very large bust recently. In the wake of that, I don't want to forget the value, love, good energy and hope that could be buried under that "muck" as Ruth put it. Please pass it along to get help for these victims just as Leo got help and is now helping others.
Humane Society of Missouri has the story about this huge fight bust.
