A ball was hit hard and far to the right-center-field bleachers at AT&T Park, reminiscent of a Barry Bonds HR. With one caveat: Mac Williamson bats right-handed.

Is this what losers in Stockholm syndrome with a narcissist doc do? It's the team formerly known as the clippers so yes. #tragic #payfatpeopletositonthejeromescouch

Is there anything more that people like me who do get results in life and are at the top of our games at what WE do, can do to fund the lifestyles of and try to be converted to narcissistic supply by Stockholm Steve for people like doc and Austin who are straight up evil and who are narcissists therefore never get results but want to hold you hostage, line their pockets, and have you clap for them anyway because they need narcissistic supply? Lolololz. Omg Steve ballmer (having accepted this serving narcissists is his role in life,) took this question seriously. 😂Yeeouch buddy, hire a tumbleweed sweeper for the aisles of staples, it'll be needed again this year.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Last year, Gabby, 13, began to feel pain in her left knee. A month later, she was walking with a noticeable limp. After a visit to their local pediatrician, Gabby’s mom received a call to let them know to head to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles immediately. It was here at CHLA where they found out the result of her pain: aggressive, metastatic, osteosarcoma or also known as bone cancer.

Since her diagnosis, Gabby has spent many days in the hospital receiving chemotherapy or treatments to help the side effects of chemotherapy. There were many bad days with pain and nausea, but a therapy dog visit changed that around.

“The dog jumped up on her bed and in that second, all her pain and nausea was forgotten about,” says Kristi, Gabby’s mom. “All she was focused on was the dog.”

Gabby has always been a huge dog lover and to be able to receive this kind of comfort from the Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program makes a big impact while she’s in the hospital. For instance, Camper, a Golden Retriever, was present when Gabby’s nerve blocks needed to be removed; She barely flinched.

Gabby has met 38 out of 125 therapy dogs since she started her journey here at CHLA. That number grew to 81 when Gabby participated in our Dog Therapy Appreciation Day this past Wednesday. There were 43 dogs present with their owners to help celebrate three consecutive years of therapy dogs on duty every day at CHLA.

“On average, we have five dogs a day visiting and an average of 1,155 patients get a personalized one-on-one therapy dog encounter every month,” says Kate Buhrmaster, program manager of the Dog Therapy Program.

The work that our fur and human volunteers put in each day at CHLA is unmeasurable. Thank you to all of Dog Therapy for providing joy, comfort and distraction for families and patients like Gabby!

How wonderful that CHLA treats the whole child and not just their disease. I have seen many posts about therapy dogs. celebrity visits, and special parties for the children. CHLA seems to really understand that sick children need to be treated like children and not just like patients. What a wonderful hospital.

Going to get my two dogs trained through Pet Partners. I already started the volunteer process. I think this would be a great area to volunteer at CHLA. I have seen first hand through my daughter Sarah, the joy it brings when a dog comes and visits.

The therapy dogs at CHLA are priceless!! Truly brought sunshine to our son's treatment stays. He battled osteosarcoma as well. Prayers on their way for you Gabby!!!!

His handler said that he stopped at my daughter’s door. My daughter was missing her dog at the time. The visit with Simba made her day.

Blondie paid her a visit as well.

Our poodle Milo met Gabby last week at Dog Therapy Appreciation Day! So happy to be one of her 81!🐩🐩❤️

That's awesome. My son has 40 dog cards from his stay. He got out of there healthy and hopefully it's only check ups for life and no return of the tumor. God bless chla
