One Month Later

The doctors are very happy with Hero's progress.  He remains in remission and in fact has visited his friends at Ronald McDonald House, the summer camp, and Kansas City Public Library on a limited basis.  Hero dressed in his best Dog Scout scarf was a goodwill ambassador at Girl Scout Summer Camp teaching about pet safety, responsibility, bite prevention and last but not least persevering in the face of adversity.  Hero is so happy to be feeling better and able to see his friends.  He is hoping to visit at school this fall and be able to participate in the reading program again. 

Hero now brings a message that Cancer is not the end of life, but the beginning of a new way of living. 


  1. I glad Hero is doing better. He has done alot of great work with you Heddie. We were devastated by the news that our oldest BC, Gyp had thyroid cancer. Gyp had the tumor removed and has started doing K9 nose work, a new competitive sport modeled after detection dog training. Gyp will be 11 soon and still retrieves with the best of them!

  2. Thank you for the encouragement and for sharing Gyp's story. I look forward to hearing more about Gyp's adventures.
