As many of you know, I have been working with 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles, Inc. for as long as it’s been around. I am on the Board and serve as the secretary, I do several of their blogs, the occasional newsletter, and have supported their efforts (OUR efforts) to find the causes and ways to prevent canine and human cancers through research, education, and awareness. This year I am participating in the Memphis Puppy Up! Walk and even have a donations page. Any donation you can contribute will be welcomed. Even if you haven’t got a dime, please spread the word about 2 Million Dogs and our efforts to eradicate cancer.
Cancer is big business. An industry in itself. But we’re not about that. We’re about finding the causes of cancer, looking for ways to prevent cancer, and educating people about the growing incidence of cancers in companion animals. We want cancer to be a thing of the past, and have participated in research with The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT through our Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down calendar fundraiser, and have worked with Princeton as well in their studies of canine mammary tumors.
I hope you’ll take time to check out my donation’s page and contribute of you can.
More about 2 Million Dogs can be read on our web page and you can read about our ongoing mission below.
Our mission is this:
2 Million Dogs Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and our ongoing commitment is discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. Our organization is accomplishing that mission in the following ways:
Education and Awareness
The field of comparative oncology is relatively new and 2 Million Dogs continues to educate people about its tremendous potential through a global campaign of strategic partnerships, seminars, speaking engagements, social media, events, broadcasts, and other forms of media.
Empowerment and Mobilization
Through our The Puppy Up! Walks, we are building the largest pet and people cancer community in the world; from business people to artists to scientists and humanitarians, we are forging partnerships with individuals and institutions with the singular purpose of ridding the world of one of its deadliest diseases.
Investment in Research
2 Million Dogs scientific objectives are: Broadening our understanding of the links between human and companion animal cancer, creating a cross institutional collaborative platform, developing new approaches to research, and funding translational cancer studies that benefit both pets and people.
