Today I would like to recognize that we are not all so lucky to be healthy and strong, but that some people struggle each day with illness, pain, or other problems. I came across this event on Facebook and felt compelled to share it with you all.
Please take a minute of your day and join this event and post a picture of your pet for this little boy.
Photo Doggie for Anthony
Hi all, my friend Kristen Lyons has her son Anthony at Phoenix Childrens hospital. Some days he gets doggy visits and some he does not. They make him smile. I thought if I create this event, you can post a picture of your dog to help make him smile. His mom shows them to him and he smiles.
REMEMBER: THIS IS NOT AN ACTUAL EVENT, ONLY TO POST YOUR PHOTO OF YOUR DOG FOR ANTHONY….AND….PLEASE PLEASE NOTE WHERE YOU ARE FROM. This event has gone viral and Anthony and his mom Kristen are smiling happily. Me too.
Hello animal lovers, its me Kristen Lyons I first of all would like to thank Roberta Lucero-Koron Ro Joe for starting this awesome event. I also want to thank each and every one of you for sending your doggie and occasional kitty pictures. We have laughed ohhhed and ahhed at every single photo and video so far it has really been a Joy and I appreciate everyone sharing their pets with us and the personal messages to Anthony are truly awesome. He is undergoing chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia hes inpatient right now but we will hopefully be out in a few days. I am amazed at how quickly this event has blown up and it makes me so happy to know how many people enjoy their pets as much as Anthony and I do. Your pets have brightened our days so much and it just shows you the power of pet therapy and animal healing. This just shows what great people animal lovers are and we are really feeling the love from you and your pets in this difficult time. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. Love Kris10 and Anthony
P.S Anthony turned 16 on the 26th and was home. We do go back on the 2nd though for more inpatient chemo. Thank you to everyone.
