Another Dog Fights Cancer With Help from the Magic Bullet
Raven is a
beautiful 2-year-old Doberman Pinscher, the beloved pet of Debbie
Dickinson in Barnstead, NH . Raven has osteosarcoma. The cost of
treatment is out of reach for Debbie, but she is not willing to give up.
Debbie discovered Magic Bullet Fund (MBF), applied for financial
assistance, and the Fund agreed to help.
Bullet Fund (MBF) helps when a dog would not be able to receive
treatment without financial assistance. MBF was founded by medical
animal writer Laurie Kaplan, in honor of her own cancer survivor,
Bullet, in conjunction with the release of her book, “Help Your Dog
Fight Cancer.” This book has given tens of thousands of dog owners the
knowledge, confidence and optimism needed to see their beloved canines
through cancer treatment.
the assistance of MBF, Raven will have a chance to survive cancer. A
diagnosis of canine cancer is not necessarily a death sentence.
Veterinary oncology has made tremendous advances in the past decade and
there are treatment options available to those who want to fight their
as unpredictable in pets as it is in humans. We do not expect miracles
for all of the dogs but we celebrate the ones we get. The real miracle
is that the families can have an extended goodbye, time for special
moments that will bring lasting memories, and the very important ability
to say, “I fought for my dog’s life!”
