Hey everybody! We got some news! My mommy and Queen T's mommy have gotten together to find a way to support feline breast cancer research and to honor Queen Tallulah at the same time. My mom is in contact with a Dr. in the Oncology Dept at UC Davis who is doing a clinic trial and we have an opportunity to not only support the research but to help defer the costs to the parents of all the kitties in these trials. They've got a huge amount of vet bills with a diagnosis like this and with what we're doing, it could help make all the difference to many pet parents. Here's the info:
At UC Davis, they are currently investigating the role of Gemcitabine in feline mammary carcinoma. This drug is good in the human breast clinic but has had a dismal track record in veterinary medicine. But they believe that they’ve found the optimal (non-toxic but useful) dose in cats and have a clinical trial investigating the identified dose in feline mammary cancer. Donations would help defer the owner's costs of therapy for their kitties along with furthering research and development of this drug treatment.
Help spread the word about Feline Breast Cancer awareness and help others at the same time by purchasing a bracelet in honor of Queen Tallulah, who lost her battle with this disease on August 23, 2010. 100% of the proceeds go directly to UC Davis for these purposes. To purchase a bracelet please visit: IBDKitties Gift Shops.
We feel good that we're able to help Queen T and her mom with our site. We get nothing out of this except the knowledge that perhaps we're making the difference that could someday save lives. As with what my mom did in honoring me with our site, we're honoring Queen T's memory in paying it forward. Hope to see you all with your pretty pink Queen T bracelets! Oh and help spread the word too if you can.
Oh wow! That is absolutely just pawsome! What an amazing thing to do! I'll have to get one!
