I was honored to enroll my dog, Kono, and his six littermates in Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. Sadly, Kono was diagnosed with and battled a rare form of cancer. But, thanks to the team supporting the study at Colorado State University’s Flint Animal Cancer Center, he continued to spread joy to his canine and human family for almost a full year after diagnosis.
The data collected and analyzed through the study from Kono’s battle (and data from other cancer patients in the study), will move us toward better treatments for cancer as well as greater understanding of other health problems like heart disease and kidney disease.
I continue to participate in the study and support Morris Animal Foundation’s work in hopes that we are able to prevent, cure and treat the diseases that shorten the lives of our best friends. Can I count on you to help the
Foundation as well?
If you give before midnight on August 26, National Dog Day, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000, by a generous donor who believes dogs like Kono should be able to live healthier, longer lives. What better way to celebrate National Dog Day than that?
On behalf of Kono and all the
other dogs — thank you.
