A young dog attack victim has made a miraculous recovery, and former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal wants to make sure she continues that progress.

Syrai Sanders, 5, returned home earlier this week after spending two months recovering from that dog attack. She and her classmate 6-year old Logan Braatz were attacked while walking to their school bus stop. Logan died and Syrai was seriously injured.
