2007 Wall Calendar will Fund Treatment for Dogs with Cancer

Briarcliff Manor, NY (PRWEB) July 1, 2006

The Magic Bullet Fund seeks sponsors to cover production costs for the 2007 Brave Spirits calendar. One sponsor is needed for each month; there are currently 9 months available for sponsorship at $ 325.00 per month. Each sponsor will be acknowledged on one month’s page and will also have a 2.5” x 2.5” box on page 1. In this box, corporate sponsors may display a corporate ad or a discount coupon. Individual sponsors may display a tribute to their own (or a friend’s) dog. Sponsorships are tax deductible under the Perseus Foundation’s 501(c)(3) non-profit status. For more information, contact the Magic Bullet Fund by phone at (914) 941-0159.

The Magic Bullet Fund provides financial assistance to those who cannot afford treatment for their dogs with cancer. In October 2006, the fund will offer a 2007 wall calendar titled, “Brave Spirits.” Proceeds from sales of the Brave Spirits calendar will fund cancer treatment for dogs who would not otherwise be able to have treatment – to spare people from losing their beloved pets to cancer without making an attempt to save them. The calendar pays tribute to the 16 dogs featured on its pages and to all dogs who are fighting or have fought cancer. It raises public awareness about canine cancer and informs all dog lovers about various types of canine cancer. Medical information provided in the calendar will be reviewed by a veterinary oncologist.

Millions of pet dogs are diagnosed with cancer every year, yet many people are unaware of the high incidence of canine cancer and that sophisticated and relatively successful treatment is available for dogs with cancer. Many who would like to provide treatment for their dogs with cancer, hoping for a cure or remission, cannot afford the treatment costs.

The Magic Bullet Fund was established by Laurie Kaplan as a program of the Perseus Foundation, in honor of her own canine cancer survivor, Bullet. A medical animal writer, Kaplan authored the award-winning book “Help Your Dog Fight Cancer: An Overview of Home Care Options.” She explains the motivation for creating the Magic Bullet Fund: “Those of us who are able to provide treatment for our dogs with cancer are very fortunate. Those who cannot must receive assistance.”

Background Information

Since its inception on November 20, 2005, the Magic Bullet Fund has provided financial assistance for six dogs with various types of cancer by coordinating with their veterinarians or veterinary oncologists. These dogs can be seen at the web site http://www.themagicbulletfund.org/donatefor.html. Kaplan and the Perseus Foundation are working to expand the Magic Bullet Fund’s financial base. We would like to see the fund assist in many more cases before the end of 2006 and into the future and proceeds from the Brave Spirits Calendar is one project that will help us to accomplish our goal.
