  • When I wrote Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, I hoped it would reach everyone trying to give their dog a chance to survive cancer. I love that Bullet's book is helping so many people and dogs their fight cancer. I hate that there is such a tremendous demand for that help.
    The tens of thousands of copies sold are an indication of the overwhelming statistics. Canine cancer is affecting millions of dogs at this very moment. I am haunted by thoughts of all of the people who have dogs with cancer but who cannot afford treatment. After completing the first printing of Help Your Dog Fight Cancer, I founded the Magic Bullet Fund to help these people and their dogs. My donations from book proceeds were the first influx to the fund and they continue although now they are dwarfed by the generous donations of so many others.<> By the second printing of this book in 2005, Bullet had left me, taken by old age, still cancer free.

    In the 2nd Edition, released summer of 2008, I updated medical information and added a final chapter to discuss palliative care, euthanasia and grief. People who have dogs with cancer are hungry for information. The first 2 editions of this book were a crash course to help dog lovers get an initial grasp of the situation and understand their options, and to provide moral support.

    The 3rd Edition of Help Your Dog Fight Cancer contains medical updates of course and a great deal of added information. The new subtitle, "Empowerment for Dog Owners," promises that the book is full of information that readers will probably never hear from a vet. Information that will help them make decisions on behalf of their dog that will benefit their dog, not the medical team. Your dog, your money, your decisions!

    Magic Bullet Fund  is Bullet's Legacy. The Magic Bullet Fund provides financial assistance to families that have a dog with cancer but cannot afford treatment costs. At best. the fund gives dogs a chance to beat cancer. At least, the fund allows owners time to create more precious memories and have a long goodbye with their beloved friend and have peace of mind knowing that they did do everything possible to help their dog survive cancer.

    Laurie Kaplan is the author of “Help Your Dog Fight Cancer: An Overview of Home Care Options.” This book, Bullet’s legacy, has helped thousands of dogs and caretakers in their fight against cancer.

    Laurie Kaplan is the administrator of The Magic Bullet Fund, a program of the 501(C)(3) Perseus Foundation.
