Losing a pet to cancer is one of the hardest things a person has to deal with. It's heartbreaking to watch your best friend fade because of something they didn't deserve. You can see the pain in their eyes and you feel helpless against it. I personally have faced this disease twice and both times my furry children fought a hard battle but eventually their little bodies couldn't take it anymore. So no one else has to face this pain, I've put together this blog to help raise money for canine cancer research.
This way there will always be a furry, friendly face on the other end of the leash!

Countdown to Race Day!

I've put together this blog to raise funds for Canine Cancer Research.  I lost two of my best friends on the 5th of the month - one on May 5, 2006 and the other on August 5, 2010.  So I decided to do this fundraiser as I track my progress to my 5th marathon on May 1, 2011.  Training kicked off last week - 16 weeks out - and things are moving along somewhat rocky, but moving (my butt off the couch) none the less.  I'm also researching how to set up the donation side of the house.  I've contacted two websites and I'm hoping for Chase Away K9 Cancer helps me get things going.  They offer some nice merchandise on their website as well as raising money for research.  Keep following for additional information.
