Marilou Chanrasmi and her dog Ahnung (means ‘star’ in Ojibwe) share a powerful, magical bond. Ahnung, a rescued dog from Red Lake Reservation, is a therapy dog who has touched hearts and healed wounded spirits in her work with at-risk youth and in hospice. Marilou and Ahnung share a unique and bonded journey. In 2011, Ahnung was diagnosed with mammary cancer; in 2011, Marilou was told she had a rare heart disease that would eventually lead to heart failure. How much time they had left was unknown. In the spring of 2012, Ahnung was diagnosed with a second rare and aggressive cancer; by November 2012, the cancer had spread to her lungs. Together, Ahnung and Marilou have dedicated their lives to leaving a Legacy of Love through their work with Leech Lake Legacy, a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of animals and residents of Indian reservations through community, conversation and an open, non-judgmental heart. And together, embracing each other and the unexpected gift of limited time, they are Living their Legacy. Learn More and Donate Today at www.LeechLakeLegacy.org

  • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
