I can't thank Emma's Foundation enough for providing timely assistance to my pup's darkest hours of his life. They are incredibly compassionate and thoughtful. It all started back in December 2020, my 12 year old boy "Beppo", a healthy silver standard poodle, suddenly became limp with his right hind leg and it swelled to the size of a ham. After a few trips to the local emergency vet without improvements, I drove him down to Manchester NH to see a specialist. After 5 days of stay, a $7500 medical bill, and a bone deep surgical wound, the swelling was drained but they couldn't positively identify the cause. Back in Vermont I took my boy to the local vet daily for his sterile wound cleaning and bandage change. Then one day his abdomen and his back swelled up with four large tender nodules. My vet referred us to Peak and Dr. Goossens was able to diagnose his strange illness: it was a very rare form of slow growing pancreatic cancer. Only two existing cases were documented in the medical journals. After another major surgery and now weekly chemotherapy, my 12 year old pup is running again. Oncologist Dr. Zwahlen knew Beppo's treatment would be expensive, so she told me about Emma Foundation and encouraged me to apply. Due to the reason that I took a major pay cut to start a new career in a brand new field, the weekly chemotherapy and bi-monthly check up is going to be very expensive. I sent my application to Emma and quickly received a response from Tina. Emma not only agreed to donate a sizable amount of money to Beppo's treatment, but a kindhearted stranger learned about Beppo's story from Emma's website and she personally made a donation as well. (A big shout out to Sima. :)) I also received email followups from Emma asking for Beppo's update because a lot of people learned about his story on their website. Emma is truly an amazing charity. (RIP Emma. I know you are getting lots of tasty treats and belly rubs in heaven.)

Emma’s foundation will always have a special place in my heart. When my dog Rieley of nine years was diagnosed with canine cancer I was devastated, she was my whole world, she got me through a divorce, having to move into an apartment and was my support though everything. Having no children of my own she was my fur baby . I was having financial difficulties and didn’t know how I was to pay for her much needed chemo treatments, a friend told me about Emma’s Foundation and I reached out to them. They helped me to pay for a few treatments which prolonged my Rieley’s life, I was able to spend more time with her before I eventually had to say goodbye. I am so grateful. For this foundation that being an artist I am painting some landscapes and things and getting prints made into cards, which I am about to sell at a local pet supply store and have some of the profits get donated to Emma’s foundation. I am more than happy to give back to them after everything they have done to support me . Sincerely Renee Cipri White

Emma’s Foundation for Canines with Cancer helped Mattie, my sweet Shih Tzu when she had cancer. Tina called her “peanut” and took such a loving interest in her well-being even to the point of visiting her immediately after her surgery at the Peake Veterinarian organization. I was so touched by that gesture and grateful that they had helped my little girl. Sandy Short

My 7yr old yellow Labrador retriever, Sunny, was diagnosed with Lymphoma(cancer). I was devastated. With cancer, time is of the essence, so I had to decide fast if I could afford chemotherapy, or put her on prednisone and she'll only live a month or 2!! So I tried to get help from places such as Emma's foundation, and started a go fund me page. Not many foundations were able to help due to the pandemic, funding wasn't available. Emma's foundation helped me by donating $600.00 towards Sunnys chemo treatments!! There was also a couple small donations from some kind people, through Emma's foundation. Every little bit helps alot. Also I felt like Tina, whom I think is the founder, really genuinely cared. She emailed me many times to ask how Sunny was doing & to see how her chemo was going. Tina is an amazing woman who genuinely cares and I will forever be grateful for the help from Tina & from Emma's foundation. I'm happy to say that Sunny is in remission from cancer and doing great. Again thank you for all that you have done for us. With love always Nicole & Sunny❤❤

When Abby was diagnosed with cancer, and I knew she needed to have her leg removed, I was distraught. I was worried not only for her, but how I was going to be able to pay for this expensive surgery.

My daughter sent me some links to organizations that would help with expenses for canine cancer. It is something I would never have thought of.

Emma's foundation came through with a donation paid directly to the surgeon. I am very grateful for their help.

They are funded through donations, so, please help.

A wonderful organization that helps to ensure all dogs regardless of owner's status and income get another chance at life and a chance to beat cancer. No dog should be put down just because an owner can not afford care.

Tundra bear was the best BEAR EVER! He went for 12 years with nothing wrong. But arthritis. He went through a torn acl like a champ. He never showed a sign of cancer until vets could see in hindsight. This foundation gave him a solid and complete life. He lived every moment he could to the fullest. ❤️

It was few months after learning my 12 year old beagle, my best friend, had cancer. I had recently gone through a bad break up, was living alone, struggling financially, things were just tough.. One day I got a package in the mail, but hadn't remembered ordering anything? The contents brought me to tears! It was a care package from Emmas Foundation for Canine Cancer Inc. It had a whole bunch of goodies and supplies, and absolutely made our day, week, month... Thank you again to Emmas Foundation, and my friend for referring me. You were such a bright light in a dark time for us

We came across Emma’s Canine Cancer Foundation on FB a social media site .
Our beautiful furbaby Coco was going through Chemotherapy at our local hospital
We needed help financially and I reached out to Emma’s , I was overwhelmed with the support TINA, & her extended family at Emma’s has given to me and my family.
They helped us both financially and emotionally with Coco’s care and treatments . Coco is doing great and still has follow ups with her team of doctors
( primary vet ,holistic , oncologist, & dermatologist ) She has her very own FB page @Cocos Journey .

I was devastated when I f found out my best friend/ puppy for 16 years had thyroid cancer, I had felt a little lump near his throat. I took him to the vet and found out that it was malignant. The surgery was very expensive and I found Emmas Foundation and got to speak to Ms Tina Hatin. I think I cried most of the conversation. I had called around to other places and was told about a waiting list and other obstacles and I knew I didn't have that time. I couldn't believe how loving and warm Ms Tina was, she was not only understanding, but I could tell she had the heart of gold. Within a few days, my vet and Ms Tina were talking and Beeboo had his surgery. He is one year with a clean bill of health ( Praise God ) all thanks to Emmas Foundation.

When my dog Obbie was diagnosed with rare multiple myeloma cancer, I looked for ways to help finance her desparately needed care, and Emma's Foundation really stepped up to the plate. They were very kind and understanding and didn't back down when I needed to change Obbie's medications or treatments. They were always there to help me.
I will always remember the day that we met the founders of this foundation - hugs and tears all around. I've never experienced such compassion. This is truly the best nonprofit organization that I've ever had to deal with and while the reason for working with them was heartbreaking for me- they were amazingly supportive in every way. They'll always be number One for me.

Without the support of Emma's Foundation, my beautiful pup Obbie would not have received all the care she needed to fight her cancer.
When diagnosed, Obbie was given 18 months to live, but with Emma's Foundation helping me to get the chemo treatments that Obbie needed she lived 37 months from day of diagnosis!
Thank you, Tina Hatin and everyone else at Emma's Foundation for your help and support. You are the best!

Emma's Foundation was so amazing and generous to our family. We were blessed to be able to have more precious time with our loving dog, Dewey because of the foundations generosity. The process was so quick and easy. The foundation members were so wonderful to deal with and effortless during a difficult time. They were so willing to support Dewey's needs when other agencies wouldn't. Our family will forever be indebted to Emma's Foundation For Canine Cancer Inc.

Emmas enabled the stellar folks at Peak Veterinary Referral Center to give myself and my precious Abner more time together. For that, I will be eternally grateful. Abner's indomitable spirit lives on. Keep up the excellent work please Emmas Foundation For Canine Cancer. You are making a difference.

Emma's Angels, Past and Present...
This is a story of why a nonprofit was started in memory of a beautiful, sweet yellow lab named Emma.
Emma's Foundation for Canine Cancer was started after the loss of our beautiful girl to mandibular osteosarcoma. She was the love of our life! She was 10 years old when cancer took her from us. We all have pets in our life, as children, as teens and as adults and there will always be one that will break your heart and she was it!! When we were told it was cancer I researched the website for days trying to prove that our vet was wrong but she wasn't and our hearts would be broken forever...We were so devastated that we made a decision then that we would do something in memory of our beloved Emma. We knew that research was important for canine cancer but we really wanted to make an immediate impact so we decided to start a foundation where we would provide financial assistance to dog owners who could not afford the fur babies cancer treatments. To date 192 dogs have been helped! Please visit our website and visit our Emma's Angels Past and Present page. We wanted to make a difference in the lives of these dogs and for the people who love and need them...RIP Sweet Emma, hope we are making you PROUD xo
