Therapy Dog Helps Grant Erie Woman’s Wish

Evelyn Black, 80, an Air Force veteran and retired nurse, had her wish for a visit from a Golden Retriever granted on December 5, 2011.  Because of several medical issues, Black is rarely able to leave her home and requires continuous oxygen therapy.  A single mother, Black also volunteered with the Maria House Project in Erie and as a Eucharistic minister at her church.  Special thanks to Therapy Dogs United of Erie, PA for making this poignant wish come true.  Click here for news coverage of this wish.
