Guide Dog Helps Young Woman ThriveMcKenzie Hanlon is 22 years old and has struggled through more than most will endure in a lifetime. Hanlon has suffered a brain aneurism, two nearly-fatal strokes, mobility loss, and vision loss. Thanks to her guide dog CJ, Hanlon can overcome any challenges she faces. CJ assists Hanlon in traversing the world while maintaining her independence from vision loss. Her companionship with CJ inspires her to help others with similar hardships.
"I want to work in social work, but my dream job would be to work at Southeastern Guide Dogs to help others who have gone through a situation like my mine," says Hanlon.
