Bringing comfort and joy to patients at St. Francis Hospital-Memphis is what Lily, an 8-year-old Coton du Tulear breed, does best. Lily is a part of St. Francis’ newly expanded volunteer program consisting of 11 new members, including her handler, Richard Herbert. The first pet therapy dog at the hospital, she made her public debut on Wednesday, Sept. 26.
