Walk for a Cure for Canine Cancer

Posted on January 14, 2011. Filed under: 4. Guest Bloggers | Tags: , , , |

Petopia.tv was recently contacted by Magali Wright who suffered a terrible loss when her dog Teeka died from cancer last year. Awareness over the impact of this disease in animals is really starting to grow. Wright is now helping in the Canine Cancer Campaign by organizing a walk next month in San Marcos, California. She shares more of her story in this guest blog and how you can get involved by simply taking a walk.

"Teeka"

One out of four dogs over the age of two dies due to cancer. This statistic never crossed my mind until I lost my dog, Teeka, two days after her 11th birthday in February 2010. Since then I have wanted to make a difference so our ‘furry kids’ can lead longer, healthier lives. I  did a lot of reseach and discovered Morris Animal Foundation and their Canine Cancer Campaign. They have made great advancements in the search for a cure but need our help in their continued efforts. I noticed that there were walks in other cities but not in my hometown which has many dog lovers. Therefore, I decided to organize San Diegos 1st Canine Cancer Cure Walk which will be held on 2/19/11 with 100% of proceeds going to MAF. You can walk with  or without a dog on the 1 mile trail. After you can visit with vendors, exhibits and listen to experts from our area discuss cancer prevention, wellness, cancer research and treatment and how to be an advocate for your dog’s health. All attending walkers will receive prize drawing tickets, a bandanna for their dog and an awareness band. -Magali Wright
