Come to Lydia’s canine-cancer remission party!

Posted Jun 29 2009 10:14pm


We’re celebrating this week!

On Wednesday it’ll be a year since Lydia had surgery to have two malignant tumors removed. Since then, the docs haven’t been able to find a trace of cancer! That’s one year cancer free! We’ve been very, very fortunate and not a day goes by that I don’t remind myself of the fact. I don’t know what the future holds for us, but my hope for her is that the cancer will stay away for good!

In honor of Lydia’s one-year anniversary I’ve set up a virtual party on Facebook, and everyone’s invited! We’ll be partying from now until the end of the day on Wednesday. I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.

Sometime on Wednesday evening I’ll be giving away an autographed copy of the book, “ Help Your Dog Fight Cancer,” by Laurie Kaplan. I found it a few days after Lydia was diagnosed and it’s been the best book I found to help me help Lydia. I recommend it to anyone who has a pet with cancer!

I’ve set up a donation page for anyone who would like to donate to The Magic Bullet Fund in Lydia’s honor. The Magic Bullet Fund helps pet owners who can’t afford their dogs’ cancer treatments, and was founded by Laurie Kaplan, the woman who wrote the book I mentioned above, Help Your Dog Fight Cancer. I know Laurie would be grateful for any donation – no matter how small. You’ll be helping dogs fight their cancer battles, and I know their people would be grateful, too.
