A veterinarian in Seattle in 2004 diagnosed Athena with squamous cell cancer in the mouth and gave her 3 months to live. Through a move, we found Dr. Jeannette Kelly of Veterinary Cancer Care. After just two treatments, she was cured fully and lived in health and vitality for the remainder of her life. We were able to fulfill our promise to Athena because of the miraculous work of Dr. Kelly and her staff. ~ Kennedy and Gregg

Today, we carry on Athena’s memory through an emergency relief fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation. The Athena Fund has been established to provide supplemental funds to pet owners to help offset the cost of cancer care for their pets. At Veterinary Cancer Care, we have been asked over and over if there is an easy way to help other families facing pet cancer. If you would like to donate please consider the Athena Fund. Donations to the Athena Fund can be made through the Santa Fe Community Foundation in 4 easy steps.
