Uniform Advantage has partnered with the Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF) and is donating $1 from the sale of each “Good Dog Black” scrub print towards fighting animal cancer. The total donation will amount to over $1,600.
Our pets are our family! We love our dogs and cats and when they get sick, we want to get the best care and treatments for them. We, at UA, did not realize that so many pets are suffering with cancer just like humans at astounding rates! Dogs and cats have a much shorter life span than humans, about 10-12 years for dogs and 10-14 years for cats. As they get older, they are more susceptible to cancer and the need for a cure to give their remaining years peace and joy is even greater. This is why comparative oncology, the comparison of cancer across humans and other species has grown tremendously over the last 10 years. The value of the knowledge and data that has come out of these studies are making headlines in the world of animal and human cancer to further find a cure.
ACF’s purpose is to find a cure for cancer by funding research in and increasing public awareness of comparative oncology, the study of naturally occurring cancers in humans and companion animals to find cures for both. ACF does NOT fund research that induces cancer in companion animals.
According to ACF, “pets are diagnosed with cancer at an alarming rate, with up to 60% of many breeds developing cancer in their lifetime. Cancer is also one of the most common causes of death in people. The most common cancers in our pets – lymphoma, bone cancer, breast cancer, bladder tumors, leukemia, brain tumors and sarcomas – are also very common in people, particularly in children.
The National Cancer Institute – Comparative Oncology Program estimates approximately 6 million dogs and an equal number of cats will be diagnosed with cancer. Recent studies suggest that there are approximately 70,000,000 pets in the United States, of which one in 4 dogs and one in 5 cats will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. If one extrapolates the numbers, one might conclude that as many as 35,000,000 pets will be affected by some form of cancer. Therefore, a new treatment modality could have the potential to impact all of those pet’s lives, as well as have broad implications and impact on human cancer treatment development.”
We are excited to partner with Animal Cancer Foundation and help find a cure for our furry pets!
