Dianne's Dog Therapy Page in Memory of Bailey
Welcome to my Walk and Play L.A. page for 2018.
The dog therapy program at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is funded entirely by donations. In 2017, our fantastic volunteers and their friends raised over $24,000 through Walk LA to help support the work we do every day to bring comfort, joy and love to patients, families and staff at CHLA.
Currently, our 125 dog/handler teams 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.
While I'm a huge supporter of all of the dogs in our program, I am participating in Walk and Play L.A. 2018 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 for supporting the dog therapy program.
