There's nothing worse than seeing someone you love fighting cancer. It can be even more difficult when it's a little dog who can't talk but handles its pain with the greatest of dignity.
Now there's an organization that can help if you are having financial difficulties with paying your medical bills for fighting canine cancer. It's called The Magic Bullet Fund. This organization was named after Laurie Kaplan's dog Bullet. Grateful that she was able to care for Bullet while he was fighting cancer, she wondered what happened if she couldn't afford the treatment and realized she would be brokenhearted.
How The Program WorksWith the cost of cancer treatments these days, this organization will give financial aid from $600 USD to $6,000 USD. If you are a primary caretaker or a shelter/rescue group can apply for aid for your ailing dog. You dog must fall into the proper age and weight range. They provide assistance for tumor removal surgery or chemotherapy treatments (there are specific requirements for chemotherapy treatments).
A Difference Is Made
This organization has helped over 100 dogs fight cancer and extend their life. It's a great resource for other similar funds for this reason. The volunteers who run this website are true heroes who dedicate their lives to making dogs' lives better. If you would like to help, you can donate to them or visit their website store.
Did you know anyone in this situation? How have you been affected by a dog fighting cancer? Personally, seeing Elvis battle cancer was horrifying because he had such an aggressive form that hit him so quickly.
