It was an exciting day to say the least! I got to meet 5-year old Cameron who LOVES wiener dogs AND Channel 11 traveled to my hometown to capture the story. Thank you to producer/reporter Liz Lohuis, camerman Tyler, our good friend Victoria Nack and the Thein family for being a part of this very special morning!

Frankie persevered, and Barbara realized the beautiful opportunity she had to share Frankie and give others hope and inspiration to be the best they can be.
