Social Media Posts Photos of Dogs to Cheer up Teenager

Anthony Lyons, 16, has acute lymphoblastic leukemia and started a week-long chemotherapy treatment this past Friday.

Friends and family members of Anthony's started a Facebook event for users to send in photos of their dogs since Anthony  finds great joy in getting visits from dogs and seeing photos of them.

Since the movement started, over half a million photos have been submitted to the event and it continues to grow.

As of Monday, the page has over 840,000 followers.

UPDATE: (1/6/15, 10:00am) - It seems as if the event has been removed, the link below is broken and we are unable to find it on Facebook.
