I want to share this story I read in The Denver Post yesterday:
It’s a story of a little girl, 7 years old, who had endured painful chemotherapy for the treatment of a brain tumor. Allison Winn, a Colorado resident, had surgery and then treatment for 2 years. She is now 9 years old. During her treatment one of the things that gave her strength was her dog named Coco. This spring, when she was feeling better, she decided that if Coco could help her through this tough time in her life, maybe a dog could do the same for another sick kid.
So, this summer she set out to raise money by selling homemade dog biscuits at a lemonade stand and outside businesses. She raised enough money to buy 3 dogs which she donated to other cancer-stricken children. She gets the trained dogs from the Colorado Dept. of Corrections’ correctional industry program.
Wow! She is only 9 years old and she is already making someone’s world better! What an amazing girl. (That is her is the green and pink and the little girl in white is the lucky recipient of a new dog.)
