Your support over the past two months has been amazing. Now, I’m asking for your support one more time.
Help fund research into better, more effective treatments for feline lymphoma. Besides being the miserable disease that took sweet Petey, feline lymphoma is one of the most commonly occurring cancer in cats. In fact, lymphoma is more prevalent in cats than in humans or dogs. Learn more about the disease here or here.
Sadly, most of the treatments available are extrapolated from research studies into lymphoma in dogs. And cats are not dogs.
Take the Petey challenge — Make a donation to:

Remember to ask yourself every day: What Would Petey Do?
