During your holiday season, when you sit down with family and friends to give thanks for everything you have, also be thankful for everything you haven't had to experience. November is Cancer Awareness Month. More than 10,000 dogs and their families each year will face a diagnoses of Osteosarcoma. This bone cancer refers to the most common bone tumor found in dogs. Bone cancer can affect any breed of dog, but it is more commonly found in the larger breeds.
The Morris Animal Foundation has committed $5 million dollars to fund studies focused on stopping this cancer from spreading. During their Season of Hope Campaign, we can make twice the impact. Anonymous donors have offered to match gift dollar for dollar up to $100,000 through December 31, 2015. This support can help create a healthier future for animals by finding new treatments that can improve the quality and duration of life for the dogs we love.
