We fund the most promising, humane research and clinical trials to treat canine cancer patients, while answering critical questions that will accelerate a cure for children battling these same cancers.
With your help we can make a difference.
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
Canines-N-Kids has received a $250,000 grant and Founding Partnership from the Petco Foundation, who, with support of its Pet Cancer awareness initiative with Blue Buffalo Foundation, supports organizations working to find a cure for this devastating disease.
