Jessica McGarvey's Fundraiser:

Running down hypercalcemia

THE STORY:

As many of you know, our beloved dog June was diagnosed with hypercalcemia last year. Basically, excessive calcium that will cause a whole host of problems that will shorten her life. We were unsuccessful in finding a cure for June or a source of the problem, but we are hopeful that one day treatment will be available. As many of you also know, I consider myself a runner (albeit a slow one) and have secured a place for the Chicago Marathon this October. I have decided to raise money for the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation. I am doing this completely on my own and am not affiliated with their team for the marathon. I'm just trying to get some extra motivation to get out there when I really don't want to (think: toddler, new house, masters program, etc.) I figured making myself accountable to a cause that is dear to me will help. Help Dogs Live Longer, Healthier Lives. Donate Now! Your contribution supports research and education that helps dogs and their human companions live longer, healthier lives. Together with other dog lovers you will impact canine health research and educational programs that deliver new treatments, technologies, and therapies for the dogs of today and for the dogs of tomorrow. Through research, we are hopeful that hypercalcemia will not be a devastating disease for another family. Thanks for your support! And should you find yourself in Chicago in October, come cheer!
