Charley’s chest x-rays are clear! Canine Cancer Warriors was a HUGE success!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

 

Good news!  Charley’s chest rads are clear!!!  YIPPEE!!!  All of the angels at Rainbow Bridge must be looking out for my boy!  Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers!  Charley wore his Valentine’s Day bowtie to his appointment today and he was a big hit with all of the staff!

 

 

Dr. Buss has been seeing Charley since before he was 2 years old because of the aneurysmal cyst that his vet initially thought was cancer in his left mid-humerus and then the OS developed 7 months later in the same humerus but proximally.

 

Dr. Buss made the comment today that he never gets to see a dog grow up (Charley will turn 7 next month) and he was actually smiling and very talkative today….I started thinking and I bet as an oncologist he doesn’t get to share much good news or get to know people as long as he has known us which is really sad.  He said he wanted to know where Charley found the fountain of youth and he can’t believe it’s been 4 years 3 months since his amp and 15 months since his OS met was removed.  He said Charley looks great!  We go back in 3 months….I’m not comfortable going longer than that.

 

I also wanted to thank each of you for making Canine Cancer Warriors a HUGE success! THANK YOU!!!

 

You have all helped me surpass my initial goal to sell 20 shirts and hoodies. A total of 228 shirts and hoodies were sold! I am truly amazed!

 

Because of each and every one of you, Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. (www.bonecancerdogs.org) will be receiving 100% of the profits…..drum roll, please…..

 

$3,647.00!!! Yes, that’s $3,647.00 that will go directly toward funding of specific research directed toward canine osteosarcoma!  Together we ALL made a difference! ❤️ 

 

Additional orders have been placed since the campaign ended last night, and the CANINE CANCER WARRIORS campaign has relaunched and shirts and hoodies will be available again from now until Wednesday, February 18. 

 

In honor of Charley and all of the Canine Cancer Warriors who are currently fighting the biggest battle of their life and in memory of those who have earned their angel wings!  100% of the profits…yes 100%…will again be donated to help fund canine cancer ongoing trials and research! 1 in 3 dogs will be diagnosed with cancer. 50% of dogs over the age of 10 will die from cancer. Together we can ALL make a difference! ❤️ PLEASE SHARE!!! ❤️

 

Here’s pictures of the front and back of the shirt I designed.  The shirt is available in a short sleeve tee, long sleeve tee, hoodie and a women’s fitted tee and they come in a variety of colors.

I know most of you are dog lovers.  Many of you have had a personal experience with canine cancer or know someone close to you who has.  Dog lovers have lots of doggie lover friends who know other doggie lover friends.  Even if you don’t want to buy a Canine Cancer Warrior Shirt, PLEASE SHARE !!!   Together we can ALL make a difference!  ♥

Happy 4 Year, 3 Month Ampuversary to my Bone Cancer Warrior Charley!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

 

Happy Happy Happy 4 Year, 3 Month Ampuversary Charley!!!  I can’t believe it’s been 15 months since his metastatic OS tumor was removed!  Charley’s been doing great and he goes back the oncologist on Thursday, 2/12/15, for another met check.  Of course we’ll be keeping our fingers and 3-paws crossed for only good news.  Of course positive thoughts and prayers are always appreciated and welcome!

I wanted to share the newest addition in our home….no it’s not a baby Labby brother for Charley, but hopefully someday…it’s a canvas gallery of some of our family pictures that we had taken in Cape San Blas, FL this past Florida.  Every day when I see these pictures I can’t help but smile!  Cape San Blas is in the Florida panhandle and the sugar white sand and blue green water is amazing!  The best part about the Cape is the beaches are completely dog friendly!

There has been so much sadness and way too many losses lately, that I wanted to try to make a difference.    This past Sunday night I started a campaign on Teespring called CANINE CANCER WARRIORS to raise money for Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. to help fund ongoing clinical trials and research.

 

Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. has already funded 3 clinical trials.  100% of the profits from this campaign will be donated.  Since this campaign has been Donation Verified, all of the profits will go directly to Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc.  75% of all donations to Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. go directly toward funding of specific research directed toward canine osteosarcoma.  The remaining 25% are used to support the organizations’s insurance, federal and state requirements, and the website.

 

Human cancer trials are first done on dogs because dog’s get the same cancers as we do and a dog’s system responds to cancer the same way ours does!  Many of the cancer trials on dogs go on to become standards of care in humans, so more trials are needed.  Osteosarcoma (bone cancer), which Charley has, mostly occurs in children and young adults and the prognosis is poor.  Unfortunately treatment options and success rates haven’t changed much in 20 years, but with more clinical trials hopefully this will change in our lifetime!

 

The statistics are startling!  1 in 3 dogs will develop cancer in their lifetime and 50% of dogs over the age of 10 will die from cancer.  Believe me, I didn’t know either and I was ignorantly living in bliss until Charley was diagnosed at age 2-1/2 with bone cancer.

 

Here’s a few pictures of the front and back of the shirt I designed.  The shirt is available in a short sleeve tee, long sleeve tee, hoodie and a women’s fitted tee and they come in a variety of colors.

In honor of Charley and all of the Canine Cancer Warriors who are currently fighting the biggest battle of their life and in memory of those who have earned their wings, please consider buying one of these super cool tees or hoodies! 100% of the profits will be donated to help fund canine cancer ongoing trials and research!

 

I know most of you are dog lovers.  Many of you have had a personal experience with canine cancer or know someone close to you who has.  Dog lovers have lots of doggie lover friends who know other doggie lover friends.  Even if you don’t want to buy a Canine Cancer Warrior Shirt, PLEASE SHARE !!!   Together we can ALL make a difference!

Charley wishes you a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2015!!!

 

As the saying goes, it’s better late than never….. Merry Christmas!!!

 

Christmas Card 2014

 

We hope that everyone’s Christmas dreams came true!   Our dreams came true because Charley was here with us celebrating his 5th Christmas since he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

 

May 2015 bring all of you lots of love, happiness, and most importantly health!

Charley loves opening presents and he is like a little kid at Christmas time trying to open the presents under the tree when no one was looking….or even when we were looking!

 

Here’s a picture of impatient Charley….he wanted to open his presents now!

Charley’s met check…ALL CLEAR!!!

YAY!!!  YIPPEE!!!  WOO HOO!!! 

 

Charley’s met check on 11/13/14 went great and his lungs are clear!  Dr. Buss said Charley looks great and makes the top of his list of miracle dogs, which just warms his momma’s heart!   Charley is a 4 Year Bone Cancer Warrior and he’s 1 year post metastatic OS removal!

 

GO CHARLEY!  Keep fighting for all of our cancer warriors whom are no longer fighting and for all of those that are in the midst of their battle!

Happy 46th Month Ampuversary Charley!!!

Today is Charley’s 46 Month Ampuversary!!!   YIPPEE!!!  YAY!!!  WOO HOO!!!   HIPHOP” HOORAY!!!

 

We are getting very close to celebrating 4 years!  To put 4 years into perspective in Charley’s life, he was 2-1/2 years old when he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma and he will be 6-1/2 years old the end of next month.  On his 4th ampuversary, he will have spent 66.6% of his life as a Tripawd fighting cancer and it will be 1 year since having his metastatic OS tumor removed.  Pretty amazing indeed!  I can barely remember him having 4 legs.  This is why Charley is and will always be a Bone Cancer Warrior! 

 

Charley enjoyed his brief photo shoot in the front yard this evening…of course posing for treats!  It’s been very hot and humid here recently, between 105-110 with the heat index, so his outside time has almost been non-existent the past week or so.

 

Here’s my beautiful boy….

Charley’s Met Check = All Clear!!!

Great news!!!   Charley saw his oncologist today for chest x-rays and they were clear!  YIPPEE!!!  YAY!!! WOO HOO!!!

 

Dr. Buss said that Charley looks great!   He can’t believe it’s been almost 10 months since his OS met was removed!

 

Our next met check will be on 11/13/14…2 weeks after Charley’s 4 Year Ampuversary!!!

 

Charley decided to wear a bow tie to impress his oncologist today…I think it worked! 🙂   Here are some pics from today and they are a bit blurry. Charley was a bit anxious today, had difficulty sitting still and was a bit too distracted to pose for pictures.  I don’t blame him at all…he did have his leg amputated there, 5 rounds of Carboplatin, a CT-scan, his OS met removed, 6 rounds of chemo alternating between Doxorubicin and Lomustine, numerous chest x-rays and blood work, countless poking and prodding, 4-1/2 years of oncology visits, etc.   Just a few reasons why Charley is my OS Warrior!

I just wanted to share some good news since there has been so many losses lately…

Charley celebrated his special day by eating some grilled salmon (his second dinner) and he just finished devouring a cow’s ear in record time!
