Here is some treasured feedback about our helping folks become more Cancer-Aware:

Hi from the Arizona Golden Retriever Connection in Phoenix. I am the webmaster of http://www.azgrc.org. I was very impressed with your Taking a Bite out of Cancer mnemonic – it is timeless. I would like to ask your permission to display it on our Health and Education page (giving you full credit of course) and to make handouts available at our adoption events. So many of our rescued dogs succumb to this disease and making more information available might help prevent or cure someone’s beloved pet. I enjoy all your topics and I passed along the treating dogs with their own stem cells for hip dysplasia to our members since many Goldens possess this affliction. Hope to see more information on this become available. Thanks for all the information on your wonderful website. You set the standard for other rescues to follow.
