Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem we are addressing is that 50% of all dog owners do not know dogs can get cancer along with treatments and options that are available to them.
Canine cancer research does not receive the funding that human cancer research does, we are hoping to close the gap.

Documentary - My Friend: Changing the Journey

My Friend: Changing the Journey is a ground-breaking documentary that will take dog lovers on their own informative journey of awareness and hope as it weaves interviews from highly respected Oncologists, Veterinarians and Canine Care Professionals throughout three inspiring stories of dogs and their owners who are battling lymphoma and in some cases even beating the disease.
Canine lymphoma is one of the most common cancers in dogs with an estimated 300,000 cases diagnosed annually in the United States alone. Without treatment, a dog with lymphoma may die within weeks. Standard chemotherapy treatment is effective for up to 85% of diagnosed dogs, and 50% of those dogs will have an extended quality of life for at least nine months. Unfortunately, it is estimated that fewer than 10,000 dogs diagnosed with Lymphoma will receive therapy.
According to many veterinarians, pet owners simply "shut down” when they hear their dog has lymphoma. When that disconnect occurs, they may not be in the right state of mind to make the best choices for their dog. The goal of the film is to make canine guardians aware, first and foremost, that life does go on for a dog with cancer. Unlike humans, dogs don’t know they are sick, they just want to live, play and love the same way post diagnosis as they did before they went to the vet. My Friend is not meant to answer every possible question about lymphoma but rather to point dog owners in the right direction and stimulate dialogue between owners and pet care professionals to make sure each and every dog diagnosed receives the best course of treatment, be it chemotherapy or just making their dog’s life as comfortable as possible.
My Friend: Changing the Journey will provide valuable information on oncology, treatment options, nutrition, holistic approaches, prevention and remarkable advancements in the fight against the disease.
The dog's featured in My Friend will make one fact abundantly clear to all dog owners… dogs with lymphoma and their humans can LIVE every second of their time left…be it a day, a week, a month or years.

Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Increase awareness of canine cancer and educate dog owners about canine cancer.<br/><br/>Find better treatments and hopefully a cure for canine cancer.

Expand the available information on canine cancer through documentaries, website and community outreach programs.<br/><br/>Raise funds and expand resources to specifically target canine cancer research and education

By continuing to raise funds and resources we will be better able to continue the production of educational documentaries, which keep the pet owners better informed, as well as an updated website that is constantly updating with new information and resources that fit the needs of pet owners.<br/>We are working closely with Cornell University to help find better treatments for canine lymphoma and hopefully a cure.

Based on the increasing responses received with questions about canine cancer and the request for resources and information, we believe we are reaching more people and making a difference in how canine cancer is perceived.<br/>Working closely with researchers at Cornell University we are constantly updated on the progress of the research we are helping to fund.

We have created a website specifically for canine lymphoma that is growing to include more canine cancers. We created a brochure that is available on our website for free and is also provide to veterinarian offices in the US and Canada. We have produced two award-winning documentaries on canine cancer with one making it to broadcast television. We are currently funding state of the art research at Cornell University. Because lymphoma in dogs is less well studied than humans, the research tools to study canine cancer are less well developed. With our help Cornell University is working on making and characterizing these research tools, which will be available to the entire canine cancer research community after they are created. This will encourage and enable more research into canine lymphoma and hopefully speed the development of better treatments and a future cure for the disease. We have finished and released our award winning documentary on canine bone cancer.
