Boston Marathon Bombing Survivors Bring Dog, Book To Sac

posted by Kitty O'Neal, KFBK News - 

Sacramentan Jessica Kensky and her husband, Patrick Downes from Boston, were  both injured during the Boston Marathon bombing in April of 2013.  Jessica became a double amputee, and Patrick is also an amputee as a result of injuries they received from the bombing. 

The couple will be in Sacramento on Monday, April 23, along with their service dog, Rescue, to share the experiences which ultimately inspired their children’s book Rescue & Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship.

Jessica, Patrick, and Rescue will be at The Shriner's Hospital  at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, and then they will make an appearance at the Barnes and Noble at Arden Fair Mall at 6:00 p.m.

Check out the interviews done by KFBK's Kitty O'Neal with Jessica and Patrick, as well as with Nicole Forsyth, President and CEO of Red Rover which is adding the book to its Kid's Classroom Program.
