Group Description

LymphomaHeartDogs is a support group for *owners of dogs that are in chemotherapy* because they have been diagnosed with a type of canine cancer called lymphoma, lymphosarcoma or canine lymphoma. In order to join this group, your dog *MUST BE IN CHEMOTHERAPY TREATMENT*. We discuss chemotherapy issues with our dogs and offer our own experience in order to give strength and hope to each other. If your dog has canine lymphoma and is in chemotherapy, please join us! If you have decided against chemo or are still deciding, please join the Yahoo group CanineCancer (link below).

WE DO *NOT* APPROVE MEMBERSHIPS BASED ONLY ON THE COMMENTS WHEN YOU CLICK "JOIN THIS GROUP". AFTER APPLYING TO JOIN, PLEASE FREQUENTLY CHECK THE EMAIL ACCOUNT FROM WHICH YOU JOIN FOR A VERY SHORT QUESTIONNAIRE THAT MUST BE SUBMITTED WITHIN 1 WEEK BEFORE YOUR MEMBERSHIP CAN BE APPROVED. PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS IS A *PRIVATE GROUP OF OVER 7OO MEMBERS* WHO HAVE LYMPHOMA DOGS DOING CHEMO. WE REQUIRE APPROVAL TO JOIN. If you do not plan to do chemo, you will be more comfortable in the group: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/CanineCancer/

***PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER FOR OUR FOLLOW-UP CORRESPONDENCE***
***IF YOU DO NOT HEAR FROM US WITHIN 24 HRS OF APPLYING, PLEASE WRITE TO OWNER ADDRESS AT THE RIGHT OF THIS PAGE***

The photo is of Don and Ace--his Greater Swiss Mountain Dog--who inspired me to start this group. Don publicized Ace's lymphoma and chemotherapy by writing to all his friends. Because of his emails, when my own dog, Q, was diagnosed--I *knew* that chemotherapy might give Q and I more quality time together. Don was active with Ace till the day Ace died. Even though Ace was on chemotherapy, his quality of life was excellent! They hiked, herded sheep, swam in their local lake and did cliff diving. Don and Ace *pursued life* rather than fleeing death--this is what all of us do, together, in this group.
