Puppies Bring Hugs and Healing to Family Fighting Cancer

It's hard not to smile when you see a puppy. Even harder not to laugh when a little furball licks your face. That's why Jennifer Trepanier created Pile of Puppies--to bring a joyful experience to chronically ill children and their families by surrounding them with furry, four-legged love! Helen Raptis got to help out when Pile of Puppies visited the Christopherson-Engh family whose 9-year-old daughter Hayden is fighting osteosarcoma.
