EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

THE STORY:

"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, who became my mother's fourth child when I left home for college, 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.  You can read the full story of our loss here via my blog.

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.
