LAKEWOOD, CO - OCTOBER 07: Terminally ill patient Evelyn Dafoe, 83, caresses a dove on October 7, 2009 at the Hospice of Saint John in Lakewood, Colorado. The dove visits are part of an animal therapy program designed to increase happiness, decrease loneliness and calm terminally ill patients during the last stage of life. The non-profit hospice accepts patients regardless of their ability to pay, although most are covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
