Dr. B and Therapy Dog Lucy

Dr. B, Program Director for Healing Heroes, would rather talk about her therapy dogs or chickens than herself. Lucy was a gifted healer, and we are sad she departed for her final rest. Lucy's and her brother Bear's entry into being a therapy dogs was at the bedside of a stroke patient who had had not moved in two weeks since their stroke onset. The first time they moved was to pet Lucy and her brother Bear and receive puppy hand-kisses. The patient walked out of the rehab hospital, despite all thinking - well, not Dr. B, Lucy or Bear! This story exemplifies the hope that Dr. B (and her pet therapy friends) have for all and imparts to all, that it is possible to achieve more and live a fuller life. "Whatever it takes, it has to be found and gifted to those in need on their healing journey ..." Hence, Dr. B is a life-long learner who has studied and practices in very short Western medicine (Board Certified MD in Physiatry) and Eastern Medicine modalities.
