Project Hearts & Tails works directly with hospitals to provide support packages meant to bring comfort and hope to young cancer patients. Within each package is a copy of a beautiful children’s book written by Canines-N-Kids’ founder Ulrike Szalay, called  “We’ll Get Through This Together,” as well as a black Labrador plush toy friend.

Since social distancing means therapy dogs can't visit many hospitals, a heartwarming new initiative aims to support children fighting cancer with a cuddly stuffed animal and book to read.

CHANTILLY, Va. (WDVM) — Many of today’s cancer treatment drugs are developed for adults, but 16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year. Six million canines are diagnosed with cancer every year, and Canines-N-Kids President Ulrike Szalay says some scientific studies have shown that kids and dogs have similar experiences with the disease.
