BOOK: ‘Incredibull Stella: How the Love of a Pit Bull Rescued a Family’

At the age of 41, Marika Meeks of Scottsdale seemingly had it all, but her fate soon changed when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After fighting the disease she felt she could not move on with her life until she adopted a 7-month-old pitbull named Stella. She’s written a book about her experience, “Incredibull Stella: How the Love of a Pit Bull Rescued a Family,” and she talks about that on Arizona Horizon.
