There is nothing more rewarding than being able to say to a pet owner that their much loved companion is going to be okay because we were able to successfully treat their cancer.
Unfortunately we can't always say that, but I believe one day we will be able to. That day will be made possible because of the support given to places like the Australian Animal Cancer Foundation.
I am thrilled and inspired by the energy and generosity of our donors and volunteers. The enthusiasm with which they pitch in to help our quest to cure cancer is wonderful. Through the Foundation we were able to purchase equipment not found anywhere else in the southern hemisphere, and use that equipment to deliver wonderful, effective treatments and perform scientific research which is of value all over the world.
What is even more exciting is how our research translates to the work being done to cure cancer in humans, and how quickly one cure will follow the other.
Thank you to all who have contributed to the Australian Animal Cancer Foundation so far. If you are inspired by the courage of the animals we treat, by the dedication of those that love them and by the huge potential we have to make a difference and eliminate cancer, please join our wonderful contributors.
