This Facebook “Event” Uses Dog Pictures to Support a Teenager With Leukemia

[Update: Because people can be horrible, someone started posting gross, inappropriate pictures to Anthony’s original Facebook. When they were reported, the entire event was taken down by Facebook on Monday, December 5. The event has been restored, but in the interim,Anthony created an Instagram page to share his favorite pictures. Check it out, along with the original Facebook Event.]

Your teen years are when your life is usually on the verge of expanding, and you’re starting to test any boundaries that your teachers, parents, or peers put on you. For 16-year-old Anthony Lyons, however, the boundaries of his life are sharply defined by acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Anthony was diagnosed with the disease last year when he became ill during a trip with his grandparents, and now he’s undergoing chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
