Facebook Group Shares Thousands of Dog Photos to Help Support Teen Cancer Patient

Thousands of dog lovers have united on Facebook to help a Phoenix teen through his cancer treatment.

Anthony Lyons, 16, is currently at the Phoenix Children's Hospital undergoing chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, reports ABC News. The treatments can be a draining ordeal, but there's one thing that always brightens Lyons's time in the hospital: dog therapy.

"It really helps – the pet therapy," Lyons told FOX 10. "I can be in here having a really bad day, and one of the dogs will show up and it will be the highlight of the day."

Unfortunately, therapy dogs do not visit Phoenix Children's Hospital every day. To help Lyons on the days the canines are out, a family friend created the Facebook event "Photo Doggies for Anthony."

The page isn't for planning an actual event, however. Instead, it's a place where caring strangers from around the world can share their dog photos with Lyons.
