The Dad Peep and I have been busy. Very busy. Wallowing in grief only goes but so far. So, we decided it was time to do something else.
We’ve established a fund at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine where there are trials going on right now – with Scotties even – to determine the origins of hemangiosarcoma cells.
We don’t want dogs and their peeps to suffer as we did. I’m not saying a cure – let alone a test or treatment – is coming next week, but we’ve all got to start somewhere.
Research in Stuart’s name seemed appropriate.
In that spirit – and you know how spirited and sporty Stuart was – we’ve also launched an immediate fundraising campaign through Bonfire Funds.
Our goal is to sell 300 shirts from now through October 12. International shipping is available so get out there and buy a shirt or a hoodie. Or share the news with your shirt and Scottie loving friends.
Thank you Lynn Spencer. The T-shirt campaign hadn’t been live for more than 3 or 4 minutes when I received notice that the first shirt had been sold. It was Lynn at Rocky Creek Scotties.
Stuart made that happen, too. Bless him. And Bless Lynn.
And thanks to you all for being a part of this journey along with me and the Dad Peep. We appreciate it more than you can ever know.
