We are so happy to report that CLEAR as well as the many others who champion our cause, have a lot going on! Dog Clubs from the east to west coast and, are holding raffles and/or finding other ways to lend support. Darcy Evans, a highly respected photographer out of Edmonton, Alberta is donating $5 from the sale of every one of his beautiful Rescue Calendars to CLEAR. Please go to http://www.darcyevansphotography.com/store to order your calendar. We are in awe of all of the incredible people and organizations so eager to lend a hand to our efforts.
We are still trying to get the word out that a regular wellness screening is one of the most important things you can do to help fight, not only cancer, but other illnesses that may affect your canine companion. Check out our animated short film (below). Our brochure, which is available for download or by request (we will be more than happy to mail it to you) is full of more information on this important piece of your dog's overall health. If you are looking for the short and quick about cancer terms click here, we all can get lost in the terminology.
We are adamant about producing a movie (you can help by going to our Indiegogo campaign) to help others understand that canine cancer, especially lymphoma, is not a death sentence. It is important to know your options so that you can make the proper choices for your companion. Finances do play a part in the decision making process, actually a huge part, but just because you don't have the financial resources to explore certain treatments, does not mean you love your dog any less.
The movie is our passion right now because we believe we can do more for dogs and their owners by providing valuable information that isn't always made readily available. There are many options to explore if your dog is diagnosed and we believe that access to those options can empower both dog owners and their dogs alike to take the best course of action. Dog owners need to understand what they can do and we want to help. When the movie is completed, it will be offered to anyone...doctors, vet clinics, schools, rescue organizations - all free of charge. Our mission is to get the word out that though cancer is a scary diagnosis, it is not a death sentence.
Once the film is finished, we will find new avenues to tackle, whether it is education or our first exploration into research. CLEAR and our wonderful supporters will continue to fight.
