CANINE CANCER RESEARCH

 

Why are there no cancer cures?  None.  We are inundated with press releases designed to keep donations and funding coming in but with $$$ trillions spent, no definitive progress in human cancer and even less in canine cancers.

 

 

CANCER RESEARCH SAMPLES

 

2015 update: The human and canine cancer death rate continues to climb while researchers fail to disseminate any information about known contributory factors such as diet, chemicals, toxins, etc.

 

A decade ago, we were like most dog owners, hopeful that all the "cancer studies" conducted in high profile veterinary universities would lead to cancer treatment advances and cures for cancer.

 

Today, we ache with disappointment. Nearly a decade later, it is still up to you to research effective treatments and cancer prevention therapies.  They DO EXIST so we are left with the conclusion that cancer is big business and that these Universities seemingly lent their good name for no good purpose.

 

dateline June 2006 - If you or someone you know has a dog with any one of these conditions, contact the cancer study researchers listed. They are looking for samples from ALL breeds, so any information we can give them will help them to help our dogs. Forms, and information on submission of samples are found on each website or e-mail the contact person.

Editors Note* In June 2006, we initiated an inquiry into the Canine Cancer Foundation’s mass-mailed donation solicitations. We were unable to elicit response relating to any expenditures particularly for funds so far collected.  The university cited did not respond, nor did the vet pictured.  They were also contacted by other media people, including a former senior Editor for The National Enquirer who told me he recieved "no response" which as he said, is in itself an answer.

 

If there is any doubt, you should make specific inquiries regarding the primary purpose for which the collection of tissues, blood samples, or genetic information will be used.  You should also know that once you "give" i.e. relinquish blood or tissue samples, you no longer "own" them and they can be used in human or animal studies which you find morally reprehensible or offensive.
