People around the country were touched by this heart-warming story of a lung cancer patient at the Dennis and Donna Oldorf Hospice House of Mercy whose final wish was to be reunited with his dog. The man had lived with his dog, Yurt, ever since she was about six weeks old. His last concern was where his dog would end up after he died. But he need not have worried, as his beloved dog found a home with a young family who had been mourning the loss of their family pet.
Thank you to Area Ambulance and the animal shelter for teaming up with Mercy Cedar Rapids to grant this Hospice House patient’s last wish.
