Therapy Dog Helps Healthcare Workers
April 8, 2020
A heartwarming story out of Tennessee, where a man and his therapy dog have been delivering food to health care workers at Tristar Summit Medical Center in Hermitage. Ron Leonard, a retired member of the Army National Guard, and his therapy dog, Molly, visited the hospital last Thursday to bring free pizzas to those helping coronavirus patients, Fox 17 reported. Leonard told the outlet he wanted to recognize all the hard work doctors and nurses have been doing on the front lines of the virus, which has killed 11,000 people in the U.S. so far and 7 in the metropolitan Nashville area.
“It makes me feel good it makes me feel like it’s something I can do to give back,” Leonard told the outlet. “It makes me feel like I’m giving back to my community.”
He added that he had already been helping law enforcement and wanted to add health care workers to his list of those he and Molly visits.
