to achieve--only 40 percent of dogs treated go into remission and the duration is shorter. Lance was able to achieve a second remission, which lasted five months. Less than 20 percent of dogs with lymphoma will achieve a third remission. Sadly, Lance wasn’t among them.


While he lost the fight with cancer, Lance’s legacy lives


on in The Lance Memorial—Canines


for the Cure fundraising event for canine cancer research. The Lance Memorial is a North America Dog Agility Council (NADAC) dog agility trial and raffle sponsored by Agility Addicts and Rover Fanatics (AARF), an agility club based in Raleigh, NC. All proceeds from the event go to the National Canine Cancer Foundation (www.wearethecure.org) to help cure cancer in the pets we love. To date, The Lance Memorial has raised $50,000 for the cause!


Our canine companions are exposed to many of the same environmental risks that we are. Just like humans, they develop melanoma, mammary (breast) cancer,


lymphoma, osteosarcoma, bladder cancer, and hemangiosarcoma. Moreover, the canine cancer cell is biologically comparable to the human cancer cell. Researchers agree that we are closer than ever to finding a cure for canine cancer. And once we have the cure for cancer in dogs, we are that much closer to finding it in humans!


So please join us at The 5th Annual Lance Memorial, which will be held March 10th and 11th 2012 at Pet Behavior Help in Chapel Hill, NC. Come out and see some amazing canine athletes in action. In addition to the competition, there will be a raffle with many great prizes and a balloon release to honor dogs lost to cancer. For more information on the event, go to
