Another Dog Fights Cancer With Help from the Magic Bullet Fund


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.


Magic 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.


Thanks to 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 pet’s cancer.


Cancer is 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!”


Please donate to help Raven get treatment and a chance to survive cancer at Donate at to help more dogs receive treatment and a chance to survive cancer. Donations can be made by mail to Magic Bullet Fund, PO Box 2574, Briarcliff NY 10510. Donations are tax deductible. MBF operates through donations from individuals and corporations.
