Briarcliff Manor, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2006

Give your dog loving friends a gift that gives twice! The Magic Bullet Fund offers beautiful gift items that your friends will love. AND your purchases will help the Magic Bullet Fund pay for cancer treatment for more dogs whose caretakers can’t afford treatment costs!

The 2007 Brave Spirits calendar pays tribute to 17 dogs featured on its pages and to all dogs who are fighting or have fought cancer. The calendar is beautifully produced with photos and inspirational stories of the dogs written by their caretakers. Brave Spirits raises public awareness about canine cancer and informs all dog lovers about various types of canine cancer. And it raises funds in order to be able to give more dogs a fighting chance to survive cancer.

The Pet Cancer Awareness lapel pin contains a pawprint IN a heart IN an awareness ribbon. The pin is sterling silver, crafted for the fund by artist Merry Rosenfield ( Etched on the back is “The Magic Bullet Fund.” A dog’s name can be engraved on the front of the pin.

The Magic Bullet Fund assists people who have dogs with cancer but cannot afford the costs of treatment. The fund is a program of the 501(C)(3)Perseus Foundation. Cancer treatment for one dog may range from $ 1,000 to $ 6,000 or more. The fund assists 2 to 3 dogs at a time through treatment, be it surgery and/or radiation and/or chemotherapy. The Brave Spirits calendar, Pet Cancer Awareness lapel pins and T-shirts will raise enough money to give more dogs a fighting chance to survive cancer.

The Magic Bullet Fund was established by Laurie Kaplan as a program of the 501©(3) non-profit, the Perseus Foundation. It is named in honor of her own canine cancer survivor, Bullet. As a medical animal writer, Kaplan wrote the award-winning book Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, to offer a lifeline to others fighting cancer with their dogs. Bullet, a Siberian Husky, lived out the remainder of his natural life in remission from lymphoma. He was nearly 14 years old when Laurie lost him to age-related renal failure.

About her motivation for founding the Magic Bullet Fund, Laurie says, “Those of us who are able to provide treatment for our dogs with cancer are very fortunate. Those who cannot must receive assistance.”
