The Canines-N-Kids Foundation is committed to finding a cure to the devastating cancers that kids and man's best friend both spontaneously develop, including bone and brain cancer, lymphoma and leukemia.

We seek to raise awareness of the tremendous unmet need these vulnerable patients share. We fund the most promising, humane comparative clinical research - studying and treating cancer in canine patients when they are sick, to help us better understand these same cancers in kids.

Our ultimate goal is to accelerate the development of better medicines and a cure for both  - a real WIN WIN!

Some of them met last week at the initiative of the Canines-N-Kids Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to joining hands-and-paws in battling childhood cancers.
