Paw Force: creating smiles


Cancer treatment at a hospital can be a very scary time in someone’s life. Now thanks to a new pet therapy program called the Paw Force at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, patients are being treated to visits from therapy dogs every Tuesday…Lynn Frank, chief nursing officer at Mayo helped create the Paw Force, and says it's amazing what the dogs do for the spirits of everyone around.
