I am mom to Jake, a 10yr old golden retriever who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the proximal humerus after a pathological fracture. He had his limb amputation on Thursday 9/17/09. I was a research coordinator at a major cancer center studying antiangiogenesis and brain tumors. I'm also a certified vet tech, but no longer work in the field. I recently went back to school to become a nurse.
