Cancer survivor, Janice Wolfe, tried to understand why she survived a terminal illness so many people do not.
Her search led to the founding of Merlin's KIDS, a non-profit dedicated to help, provide, and train service animals for special needs children.
Wolfe explains how she rehabilitated more than 25,000 dogs and trained them to become service animals.
Each dog is trained specifically for the needs of the individual. Wolfe, who co-authored There's Hope! The Four Essentials to a Stable Dog, is also known as "The Lady Dog Whisperer" and "New Jersey's Dog Whisperer" for her uncanny ability to train dogs with behavioral issues.
