If you’re coping with a recent dog cancer diagnosis, here’s one word that can give you hope for the future: Lily!
This amazing Greyhound girl just celebrated her 26 month ampuversary after an osteosarcoma diagnosis! Lily doesn’t have a blog but she posts in the Forums and celebrates every single ampuversary with our community.
Here is a snippet of her amazing survivor story:
My Lily has such a gentle, but strong spirit, and every day of the past year with her has been so special. I still watch her so carefully, hold my breath at the vet’s during that long wait for the xray results, take tons of pictures, tell her how much I love her (all the time), pet her velvety fur, and cherish every single single second with her. I try so hard to be “more dog”, and sometimes fail miserably.I am just so overjoyed to have had her with me this past year!! She has been my shy greyhound,and she chose to open her heart to me when we adopted her. We could only see part of her face as she peeked around the door that first meeting, but she raced her way into my heart and for that I am eternally grateful.
Please have a special treat today in Lily’s honor and join us in celebrating one year–Lily is getting ready to stuff her face, have plenty of scratchies, and surround herself with all her toys.
We are also remembering all the beautiful furbabies who have crossed the Rainbow bridge-may they run free like the wind. You are in our hearts.
So I say to my beautiful tripawd warrior Princess: You go girl-kick cancer’s butt as hard as you can and for as long as you can!! I love you so much.
Today, we celebrate Lily’s amazing osteosarcoma survivor story, and all of our Tripawds members who fought a hard battle against this awful disease. May all of our Tripawd Heroes light the way so a cure is discovered and nopawdy ever has to join this community again because of canine cancer.
