The Morris Animal Foundation, a nonprofit that has supported nearly 200 canine cancer studies, is hosting their annual Los Gatos K9 Cancer Walk in just a few weeks.
According to the organization, “These studies have led to more effective treatments for bone cancer, soft-tissue sarcomas and lymphoma; the development of an early diagnostic test for lymphoma; and the identification of genetic causes for lymphoma. Funding also helped establish two programs for training cancer scientists and a national tumor tissue bank, which helps canine cancer researchers study eight different canine cancers.” Of particular interest to me is their Golden Retriever Lifetime Study.
About the Event
All dog lovers are invited to walk with their dogs to celebrate the life of their canine best friend or to walk in memory of dogs that have lost their battle with canine cancer. There will be an expo area of dog related vendors and a celebration after the walk.
