Hello Humans! My name is Copper, short for Coppertop. I am a proud Welsh Terrier also known as a Black and Tan. I hope you will help me become "Dog of the Year" by donating to my pack. The research that the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society supports through YOUR donatations will help find cures for people as well as my fellow canines! How cool is that?
Before I came to my human family, my dog mom's son was diagnosed on his 21st birthday with Stage III Hodgkin lymphoma. He had to withdraw from college, move home and began chemo therapy immediately. But thanks to life saving research, the treatment was successful! Today he is healthy and thriving- about to complete his doctoral program and just married the most wonderful young woman (even if she does have a cat)!
As a terrier, I am tenacious and so are the scientists whose work is supported by your donations to find cures for cancer in people and your dog friends!
