And even though I haven't mention it, because it is just plain too emotional to talk about, I've been very sad lately because my sweet Sena's birthday came and she would have been 13 if cancer hadn't taken her (as well as wiped out 90% of her entire litter).
Recently I learned about the American Cancer Society Dogswalk to raise funds for both human AND animal cancer research. Now I am starting to feel better because I can actively participate in helping others who may face the same sorrow I did.
As a result, I have formed Team SMK* to participate in Dogswalk Against Cancer, a unique event on May 3 in Riverside Park to raise money in support of the American Cancer Society's mission to fight cancer in people and animals.
Please take a look at Team SMK's fundraising page, and either join the team or make a secure online donation. Your donation could be as little as $5 and it will help in reaching our goal before May 3. All contributions are tax deductible and will support the lifesaving research, education, advocacy, and patient service programs of the American Cancer Society.
Every bit helps, so thank you in advance for any support you can provide.
Go Team SMK!
*SMK stands for Sena, Murphy, Kasey: the names of my family's dogs lost to cancer.
