Rex, an 8 year-old Belgian Malinois, is a true American hero who has served two tours of duty in Afghanistan as an Explosive Detection Dog. Taking part in combat missions, Rex saved countless American lives performing his duties detecting IEDs. While on a mission in Afghanistan’s Kabul Province in 2009, Rex was being transported in a military vehicle when a roadside IED detonated. Rex miraculously survived the explosion, but he was eventually retired because he was no longer able to work around loud noises and flashing lights.
Unfortunately, Rex has a new and deadlier enemy…cancer.
Rex has served America, and now he needs your service via donations to fund the costly cancer treatments he requires. Let's form an army of 10,000 donors (or more) and start contributing to the care that this hero deserves. Any gift...$1.00...$5.00 or more will be greatly appreciated, and all proceeds will be put towards his treatment and care.
