Yoga Instructor: Rebecca Zaccagnino. Hosted by Sally Williams, owner of The Contented Cat & Founder of The Brodie Fund.
The Brodie Fund works in conjunction with Save US Pets (an all-volunteer 501c3 charitable organization) to offer financial assistance, through grants, to families who have pets fighting cancer.
The dog pictured here is Crew, a 13 year old Portuguese Water dog who sadly has melanoma. He needs surgery to remove a tumor in his mouth. The Brodie Fund has stepped in to help fund the surgery and Crews' prognosis is very good. Crew will be in the best of hands with the doctors at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital performing the surgery.
The Brodie Fund's mission is that no pet should be denied the treatments they need in the fight of their lives because of the owner's inability to pay. Working in conjunction with participating hospitals and doctors, The Brodie Fund will be able to help pay for life-extending and live saving procedures. Other times they are simply seeking a quality of life for pets in the time they have left here on earth.
The Brodie Fund knows all too well the financial burdens having a pet with cancer causes. The fund is named after a beautiful, well-loved feline named Brodie, who is a cancer warrior and part of a family of four cats (and two humans.) He was diagnosed in 2015 with cancer of the nasal passages. He had a tumor that was eventually going to kill him. The family underwent expensive testing followed by radiation, and Brodie is still fighting the good fight.
