Kasey To The Rescue: Ellen Rogers was no stranger to tragedy. She’d endured the death of her first husband, and the loss of a stepdaughter to melanoma followed by a bitter divorce. But nothing could prepare her for the phone call she received in June of 2005. Her son Ned—nearly 3,000 miles from home at the University of Arizona—had been in a serious car accident. His injuries were devastating. He’d suffered serious brain trauma and was paralyzed from the neck down. In an instant, their lives were changed forever. But the Rogers were survivors. And as they journeyed down the long and often discouraging road to recovery—they prayed for a miracle. When that miracle eventually came, it surprised everyone. A charming and mischievous capuchin monkey named Kasey, trained to assist the disabled by Helping Hands, right here in Boston. Ellen Rodgers has chronicled her family’s life with that monkey in a new book Kasey to the Rescue: The Remarkable Story of a Monkey and a Miracle. And Ellen Rodgers joins me today.
