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! She joined us along with 10-year-old Rianna Riegelmann and her father Peter. Three years ago, while Rianna battled Acute Myeloid Leukemia, she learned about Pile of Puppies during a chemotherapy treatment. She vowed that when she felt better, she wanted to give back to her fellow kids by bringing them puppies. Now in remission, Rianna is a volunteer with Piles of Puppies.
