images-1June had a double burden to bear. Not only was she undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer and suffering terribly from its side effects, but she was also deeply concerned about the welfare of her beloved 14-year-old min pin. As the elderly woman’s sole and most precious companion, he had been boarded at a local kennel to ensure his wellbeing while she underwent treatment. However, with limited means and limited family support, June’s growing concern was compromising her own wellbeing. After being contacted by her sympathetic and resourceful oncology social worker, we provided the funds to continue her pet’s boarding for one month while she continued her treatment. Now, with her chemo completed, Jane and her cherished min pin are once more happily together at home.
