PAWSitively Curing Cancer is dedicated to raising funds to find a cure for this deadly disease affecting the dogs and cats we love.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Brothers Josh and Bryce Benbasat (ages 15 & 12) have announced the launch of PAWSitively Curing Cancer, Inc. in recognition of National Pet Cancer Awareness Month. This new 501(c) (3) non-profit organization is dedicated to raising funds for pet cancer research.
Every dollar donated goes directly to the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. “We are proud to partner with PAWSitively Curing Cancer as the recipient of this vital funding. It will be a valued asset to continuing our cancer research program,” says James W. Lloyd, Dean of the College.
“Cancer is the number one disease-related killer of dogs and cats,” notes Josh Benbasat. “It shortens their lives and takes these wonderful pets from the children and families who love them. PAWSitively Curing Cancer is dedicated to raising funds from caring businesses and families with the goal of finding a cure for this deadly disease affecting the dogs and cats who add so much joy to our lives.”
The brothers were inspired to start PAWSitively Curing Cancer after their dog, Sashi, had cancer and it was a devastating time for them. They later found out that 50% of pets over the age of ten develop cancer. With their own grandmother a survivor of both breast and lung cancer, they were determined to do something to make a difference.
They convinced their father to put a pink trim on the veterinary recovery collar that he manufactures and give a portion of his profits to a pet cancer charity. When they couldn’t find one dedicated to pet cancer research, they decided to create their own. That’s how PAWSitively Curing Cancer came about.
“Trimline Manufacturing is proud to be the founding Corporate Sponsor for PAWSitively Curing Cancer” says company president, Steve Benbasat.
Trimline manufactures a soft and flexible recovery collar that is available in veterinary offices worldwide. The Trimline soft collar effectively replaces annoying hard plastic collars so pets can recover from surgery in complete comfort. They are durable, water repellant, machine washable and affordably priced. The collars are made in the U.S.A. and available in six sizes to accommodate all dogs and cats. Trimline Manufacturing is donating a portion of its proceeds for every soft collar sold. The newly designed collars are trimmed in pink for cancer awareness and include a special label encouraging donations to PAWSitively Curing Cancer.
Cancer claims the lives of millions of pets each year. Tumors can be found on cells, limbs and organs including the liver and spleen. To detect cancer early, pet owners should look for growing lumps or sores that don’t heal, dramatic changes in appetite or weight, discharges or bleeding, difficulty chewing or swallowing, offensive odor, problems breathing or extreme lethargy. Early detection is the best way to save and prolong lives. Individuals, families and companies are encouraged to become sponsors for this cause.
