"It could be that man's best friend might one day be man's best healer."
A few weeks after I found out I had been accepted to run the ING NYC Marathon this fall, my first pet, passed away from lung cancer. The struggles "Pookie" went through with this disease caused her heart to enlarge & became too much of a fight for her 14-year-old body to continue to battle.
However, I feel that Pook's passing was a blessing in disguise & God's way of giving me a reason for committing to run 26.2 miles come November.
2 Million Dogs is a wonderful organization committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. Started by a man who embarked on a cross country trek that was inspired by after losing his Great Pyrenees to cancer.
It's amazing to learn about the research being done on this disease & the comparisons that are being found between canine & human cancer. I'm sure most of us, at some point in our life will be directly affected by cancer. Please help me reach my goal of $1,000 by November 4th in not only aiding man's best friend, but our human fight against cancer.
Every little bit helps.
