Boston Marathon Bombing Survivors Pen Children’s Book About Their Service Dog

The Boston Bombing of 2013 was one of the most devastating times in history, but survivors such as Kensky and Downes have lived on to tell their story. These two have decided to share their story in the form of a children’s book. The book surrounds how their rescue dog named Rescue helped them through some of their darkest times, and how Kensky actually believes that the service dog rescued her instead of the other way around.

Key Takeaways:

  • Five years ago, newlyweds Patrick Downes and Jessica Kensky made the life-changing decision to stop and cheer on the runners of the Boston Marathon.
  • Sadlly, both Downes and Kensky lost a portion of their left leg during the marathon bombing.
  • Recently, the couple penned a children’s book that’s about Jessica’s service dog, Rescue, and how he has made a positive impact on their lives.
