Furry friendship helps fuel recovery

Kathy Powell withSassi

Kathy Powell and Sassi are quite the dynamic duo.

It’s not often you see Kathy without her Sassi. Most of the time, you see Miss Sassi first with Kathy not far behind.

About 4 years ago, Kathy had a seizure and was rushed to the emergency room with a brain bleed. She was life-flighted to KU Medical Center, where she found out she had a softball-sized tumor on the outside of her brain. Within two days, the tumor was removed. Thankfully, it was not cancerous.  

Kathy’s girls felt a furry companion would help her heal and provide good company. A lady told her daughter about a rescue dog she saw online. She immediately went to see this sweet girl, and it was love at first sight for the whole family.

Sassi has helped Kathy in her recovery. She has kept her up and moving, and Kathy truly feels she recovered faster with Sassi by her side. Sassi has been a faithful friend to Kathy and all who know her. This was a pair that was meant to be.
