In an effort to raise awareness for pet cancer research and treatment, Blue Buffalo and Petco Foundation representatives recently visited Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square. The visit was a part of the Foundations’ annual campaign, which is held each May and focuses on raising money to fight the disease. Efforts have surpassed total of $11 million in contributions for pet cancer research and treatment since the annual campaign began in 2010...funding has been put toward innovative comparative oncology work like that at Canines-N- Kids, an organization committed to finding a cure for the devastating cancers that impact kids and man’s best friend.
Speaking of cancer is one thing, but when it comes to cancer that affects children and man’s best friend, the conversation resonates a bit differently. The Canines-N-Kids Foundation is one of Loudoun County’s newest charitable nonprofits aimed at comparative oncology research in children and dogs.
Veterinarian Dr. Cheryl London, and canine cancer patients like Zoe, team up with kids cancer doctor Dr. Katie Janeway in the field of comparative oncology. As CBS Sunday Morning reporter Susan Spencer discovered, these two eminent cancer researchers are collaborating to find a cure for osteosarcoma for both kids and dogs.
Arlene Weintraub, Forbes and Fierce Biotech writer and author of a book on Comparative Oncology (Heal), fills out the CBS story with additional texture in her piece "What 'Sunday Morning' Didn't Say About How Animals Aid Cancer Research", detailing advances in cancer medicine that are already attributable to learnings from canine cancer patients. https://www.forbes.com/sites/arleneweintraub/2017/03/12/what-sunday-morning-didnt-say-about-how-animals-aid-cancer-research/#32704e643c96
