Investors Foundation gives out grant to increase funds for comparative oncology research.
Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF) recently received a $2,000 grant from Investors Foundation at Port Washington, New York. The grant will help further ACF’s mission of funding comparative oncology research to study the naturally-occurring, similar cancers in people and dogs to find newer, more effective treatments for both species.
“The Investors Foundation grant helped ACF grow our national outreach for the Nationwide Pet Cancer Awareness Walk held during the month of November for pet cancer awareness month,” said Barbara Cohen, executive director of ACF. “Our pets are a part of our family and losing them to cancer is particularly heartbreaking. We applaud Investors Foundation for recognizing the significant role pets can also play in helping to discover new treatment for cancer in both people and pets.”
This year’s event was held virtually on the Wooftrax platform and attracted more than 6,000 participants walking with their pets during the month of November. The event raised over $73,000 in funds for the mission work.
