DENVER, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Dog lovers and pet parents whose dogs are suffering from or have been lost to cancer or whose dogs are successfully beating the dreaded disease can share memories and celebrate their dog's life at www.CureCanineCancer.org. Go to the "Why Hope" section of the site and click on "Memories & Survivor Stories." Sharing and celebrating the life of a loved dog helps ease the pain and loss, while others can share good news on how their dog is beating cancer.
