Bella, a 7-pound
Scottish terrier puppy who belongs to an
MUSC patient, found a temporary home with
Hollings Cancer Center infusion nurse
Kyle will be
taking care of Bella until her owner is
discharged from MUSC.
The patient went to her follow-up doctor's
appointment Nov. 12. Since the temperature
was cool and Bella was too young to be
boarded, the puppy was left in her owner's
vehicle with water and a cracked window.
Without warning, Bella's owner was
admitted to MUSC. Vasenda, the nurse who
was caring for Bella's owner, decided to
bring the puppy home. With new treats,
toys and food, Bella is now spending time
with Vasenda's 12-year-old son, Kyle, and
happily waiting for her owner to recover.
