TEAM OF THE WEEK
Mane in Heaven"My visit with the mini horses meant the world to me. Before I would always stay in my room on the 10th floor at the Rehab Institute of Chicago and never wanted to go outside. One day my father came into my room and told me there were mini horses downstairs and asked if I wanted to meet them. I of course said yes because I love horses. This is where I met mini horse Mystery, a very special animal. Mystery warmed up to me very quickly and was calm and peaceful to be with. As I pet her she would fall asleep on my lap and it made me feel loved that such an amazing soul was near me...it made me smile and appreciate life again." - Aideth Cabada, patient
