Although Porsche never went to medical school, she sure knows how to make cancer patients and their families feel better. Porsche, a 6-year-old Goldendoodle, is a new face at Roswell Park. Roswell’s furry friend visits a few times a month as part of the Institute’s Pet Therapy Program, made possible in part by generous donations. During her visits, Porsche trots around the hospital, calmly visiting anyone in need of a pick-me-up, providing unconditional love and a wag of her tail.
Pet Therapy dog, Sierra, and her owners Dave and Dobie Marowski, volunteer at Roswell Park twice a month to visit with patients and families.
Tara Jane and I have been volunteering in the Pet Therapy Program at Roswell Park for five years. We began this journey in memory of my late husband John.
