Pet and Peer Support
Psychosocial services can provide significant benefits in quality of life and success in coping with serious and life-threatening disease for patients and their families. Besides meeting their peers each week and having an informal supportive environment we offer pet therapy.
Animals have an incredible calming energy about them, as evidenced by the prevalent use of therapy animals, particularly dogs, in hospital and clinical settings. It is profound to place a cuddly pooch in the lap of a traumatized survivor and witness the change.
Here you see another of our advocates, providing comfort. His name is Fonzie and he's 4 pounds of calm and love. He a licensed AKC canine good citizen and service pooch and he does wonders when emotions overpower us. He's really good at relaxing us, and relaxing with us.
Our survivorship model provides a relaxing forum in which surivors find each other and as equals they come together and share experiences for a unique friendship and informal peer-support experience.
