Every dog diagnosed with cancer has a story to tell, but not every dog has a book written about their heroic battle.
Meet Meggie, a beautiful Golden Retriever, who was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma when she was 9 years old. Through chemotherapy, half-body radiation, and her fierce determination to beat the odds, Meggie not only lived past her initial prognosis of 6-8 months, she astounded her family…and her doctors by surviving 2 1/2 YEARS past her initial diagnosis!
In the new book Meggie: A Canine Cancer Survivor’s Story, Cindy Taylor shares Meggie’s story of hope and recounts how she became an “ambassador for helping people understand that not only are dogs affected by this disease, they can teach us all something about the courage and determination to keep living.” This book was specifically written for children, to help them understand and cope when their dog is diagnosed with cancer, but anyone with a soft spot for dogs will be touched by Meggie’s journey.
