An anonymous donor has provided funds to help the staff of Colorado State University’s Flint Animal Cancer Center provide kids with plush dogs and gift cards to Amazon.com at two hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses in Denver on Saturday.
The staff visited northern Colorado hospitals on Friday. Visits occurring on Saturday include:
• 9:30 a.m., Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children/PSL
• 10:30 a.m., Ronald McDonald House/Denver
• 1 p.m., Children’s Hospital
• 3 p.m., Ronald McDonald House/Aurora
The donations are occurring through One Cure, which is a new initiative founded on the principle that cancer affects all creatures and that treatment breakthroughs come through collaboration between scientists and doctors who are working with people and animals. The university’s hope is that people join efforts to eradicate cancer in people and pets through a charitable gift to One Cure.
All charitable gifts to One Cure and all proceeds from One Cure products benefit the clinical trials program at CSU Animal Cancer Center.
