Dianne and Bailey's Page for Dog Therapy
Welcome to my Walk L.A. page!
A huge thank you to those of you who have supported Walk LA by making a donation to the dog therapy program at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Our program is funded entirely by donations, so we're very appreciative of contributions of any amount.
We currently have over a hundred handler/dog teams who provide visits to over 1000 patients a month. We average 5 dogs a day on campus and have had at least one team visiting every day since April 2015, an accomplishment we recently celebrated at Dog Therapy Appreciation Day.
While I'm a huge supporter of all of the dogs in our program, I am participating in Walk L.A. in memory and honor of my girl Bailey who was an exceptional therapy dog at CHLA from 2005 until 2011. As I think back to her thousands of visits at CHLA, I am still amazed at her intuitive ability to provide support and comfort to patients, families and staff as they dealt with major illnesses.
Thanks again for your support.
