I received this email from the AKC Canine Health Foundation yesterday so I thought it would only be appropriate to share it with you all on Give Cancer The Paw day.

May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month
Join us in our fight against canine cancer by sharing photos, taking
our survey and supporting research…
Throughout the month of May the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) will provide news and information to help educate dog owners about the cutting-edge
research and improved treatment options in the field of canine cancer.
Since 1995 CHF has awarded 188 oncology grants and funded nearly $10.7 million in canine cancer research. Scientists are studying lymphoma, hemangiosarcoma, osteosarcoma and other common canine cancers, providing veterinarians with better tools to diagnose cancer earlier and to treat it more effectively. Many of the CHF-funded research studies have One Health implications, impacting the study and treatment of cancer in humans.

As part of the Pet Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) campaign, CHF is collecting photos from the public of their canine cancer fighting superheroes. Photos depicting a dog’s brave fight against cancer can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. CHF will feature photos of canine cancer superheroes on social media throughout May. Submissions should include the dog owner’s name, the dog’s name, and optionally the type of cancer.
Dog owners are also encouraged to take a brief 5-minute survey athttp://support.caninehealthfoundation.org/site/R?i=17xzdcNUMktNr3DZbCoCRA to share their thoughts on cancer treatment for dogs. Data collected from this survey will be used to help CHF, researchers, and veterinary specialists better understand what factors are involved in the decision to treat a family pet for cancer.
