Finding a cure for cancer is important to all of us! Where 2 Million Dogs steps in is that it provides grants to places that research comparative oncology in dogs and humans. Dogs get many of the same cancers that humans get. In dogs, the cancers metastasize faster, which makes them easier to study and the benefits can be studied for human use. On a personal note, my father died from lymphoma on January 11, 1997. My dog Marshal was diagnosed with lymphoma on January 11, 2012...exactly 15 years after my father's death. We lost Marshal just 9 months later on October 24, 2012. This was my cousin's birthday, who died from lung and bone cancer. Before Marshal, we had also lost 2 cats and a rabbit to cancer. This horrible disease affects more than our species. Because of the impact cancer has had on us, we volunteer for 2 Million Dogs at the Puppy Up! Canine Cancer Walk seeking to raise money for cancer research. We need to end this disease NOW!
