Kasey to the Rescue

Ellen Rogers considered herself something of a tragedy snob. The single mother of five believed she could weather any storm, that she could keep her family from harm with fortitude and grace. But nothing could have prepared her for the June 2005 car accident that left her son, Ned—then 22 years old—fighting for his life.

Miracles happen to those who believe, the saying goes, but who would have believed that one family’s “miracle” would weigh in at five pounds - a service monkey from Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled that did more than help Ned cope with his disabilities - she turned the simple tasks of life into a life worth living.

Kasey to the Rescue: The Remarkable Story of a Monkey and a Miracle by Ellen Rogers.
