Apologies if this has been posted to GT already but I just found out about it and figured I'd spread the word...

There is a 16 year-old boy in Phoenix named Anthony Lyons who is currently undergoing treatment for Leukemia at Phoenix Children's Hospital. Some months ago a family friend put the following call out on Facebook:

Hi all, my friend Kristen Lyons has her son Anthony at Phoenix Childrens hospital. Some days he gets [therapy dog] 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.


The posting went viral and the rest is a heartwarming human interest story on the local news.

Wanted to share with #TeamDog because the Facebook page is still up and apparently all the pictures of adorable doggies are still making Anthony smile as he toughs out his treatment. I know I've seen pictures of some pretty cute canines here on GT so share them with us and share them with Anthony to brighten his day!
