Bombing survivors Dave Fortier, Celeste Corcoran and Corcoran’s daughter Sydney brought their dogs Sebastian, Koda and Zealand to meet with Pulse survivor Angel Colon.

"There's post-traumatic stress, and it helps to talk with someone who has been through similar situations," double amputee Celeste Corcoran told WFTV.
