KMBC: DOC - Therapy Dogs Provide Comfort At Saint Luke's Hospice House

April 20, 2016

Molly is a volunteer at Saint Luke's Hospice House. She provides comfort that others cannot - sometimes by sitting quietly, by licking a patient's hand, or by jumping in bed with them. Molly is an Australian Shepherd/boxer mix who provides peace, calm and comfort to those in need, whether it be a patient, a family member, or a Saint Luke's Hospice House staff member.

KMBC 9's Kelly Eckerman met Molly and her handler Alexis during a recent visit to Saint Luke's Hospice House.
