Behavioral: Pet Therapy
Patients will be asked to complete the standardized QLQ-C30/BN20 questionnaires. Following completion of the questionnaires, a trained pet therapy dog will be brought to the patients for approximately 10 minutes. After approximately 10 minutes, the dog will be removed and the patients will be asked to re-complete the standardized QLQ-C30/BN20 questionnaires. Patients will be photographed and videographed during this time.
Finally, patients will be asked to talk about how their perspectives on life have changed with their diagnosis. These responses will be captured for use in the art exhibit created from images collected during the study.
- Correlation of facial expression changes with QOL questionnaire responses [ Time Frame: Immediately prior to therapy session to immediately after therapy session ]Will look to see if there is a correlation between facial expression changes in visual portraits with QOL questionnaire responses before and after pet therapy sessions
- Comparison of scores of QOL questionnaires before and after pet therapy [ Time Frame: Immediately prior to therapy session to immediately after therapy session ]Will compare QOL questionnaire scores from before and after pet therapy sessions to see if there is a change after the pet therapy.
