Just a few weeks a good friend of Kristen Lyons created a Facebook Event for people to send photos of their dogs to cheer up Kristen’s son, Anthony, while he undergoes Chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Almost immediately the event went viral and to date more than 1.5 million people have posted pictures of their dogs! You can check out the event and the multitude of dog photos uploaded by their loving humans here.
This story is a true testament to the depth of human caring and the power of the internet.
Kristen’s good friend, Roberta, had this to say in a recent update:
God Bless you and God Bless the world wide web…Anthony is smiling joyfully because of YOU..This has gotten so viral that it is making local and soon National News….One thing I have to say is, make yourself smile too by looking at these beautiful animals that God gave us. I can’t stop crying from tears of happiness…
Here’s just a few of the photos posted that are sure to make Anthony smile!
