There's never been a cause closer to my heart than canine cancer. When Andy was diagnosed, my world spun off its axis. So little was known about his type of cancer (adenocarcinoma/prostate cancer). His prognosis was very grim: 1-3 months without treatment; an unknown amount of time with treatment. When I asked why such ambiguity, I was told there was a huge lack of research. We chose treatment, which has been extremely expensive, with no promises or guarantees.
My wish in raising this money is that one day soon, not only will there be cures for many of these cancers, but also that pet parents will have real facts and figures to base the gut-wrenching "to treat or not to treat" decisions on. This journey has been difficult & painful for many reasons, and the "not knowing" ranks in the top 3. Please help us make a difference.
