Ahnung T-Shirt/hoodie fundraiser for Leech Lake Legacy

Hoodie (texas orange)
Ahnung (pronounced ah-NUNG, and means 'star' in ojibway) is Legacy's older sister, mentor, and best friend. Like Legacy, she was a rescue from a reservation ... she, however, came from Red Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. She was rescued by Karen Good of Red Lake Rosie's Rescue on Red Lake Reservation in the fall of 2008 - abandoned with her litter of 8 puppies, no front teeth from grinding her teeth down to her gums in search of food, and a survivor of heartworm, a couple gun shots, and lymes.

It wasn't long until I realized just how amazing Ahnung was and how her purpose on this planet was for one much greater than I could even imagine ... she is a registered therapy dog and has touched the lives and hearts of at-risk youth and her friends she has spent time with in hospice as a part of our volunteer work. Unfortunately, in 7/2011 she was diagnosed with mammary cancer and had a lumpectomy to remove the tumor; in 4/2012 she was diagnosed with a second rare and very aggressive cancer (invasive adenosquamous carcinoma) and underwent surgery to radically remove the tumor in her neck/back; in 11/2012 the cancer had metastasized to her lungs. We began chemo but after 30 days of chemo learned the tumor was continuing to grow, so at the end of December, 2012 we stopped chemo and made the decision to enjoy her Final Walk (http://mariloureflects.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-final-walk.html).  As of today, 5/3/2013, she continues to do well and to touch the hearts of many ... I am grateful for every day we have together.
Ahnung, touching hearts (paws to little hands) of the little ones :)

Ahnung has been to every spay/neuter and vaccination clinic at Leech Lake Reservation. She was the inspiration and the fire and passion behind raising the funds for our first ever spay/neuter and vaccination clinic in March, 2012 at Leech Lake Reservation. She helped raised funds for our 2nd clinic. My hope is that she will be well enough to be at her fourth spay/neuter clinic on May 17-18, 2013.

Ahnung has been and will continue to be a north star for many ... and she is, without a doubt, a Legacy of Love. As the design on the back of the t-shirts and hoodies read ... she represents Love. Hope. Resilience (You can follow Ahnung on facebook at: www.facebook.com/AhnungNorthStar)
