The Pet Cancer Fund is a Vancouver based organization whose mission is to increase the life expectancy and improve the quality of life of pets diagnosed with cancer.
Estimates place the number of dogs and cats developing cancer yearly at 6 million for each species; approximately 6x the number of humans getting cancer every year within North America. Amazingly, the cancer in our pets can share up to 80% of its DNA with human cancers which means they can be diagnosed and treated very similarly to humans.
New diagnostic and treatment breakthroughs are happening for us humans, however these discoveries can take an extended period of time to make their way to the veterinary field. Our goal is to change that.
As we set out to grow and build a large community of engaged animal-lovers that will support our many efforts to help pets and their families, we’re in search of experienced writers and editors to help us tell our story. That’s where and how you can help us.
As our volunteer Facebook Editor, you will be responsible for editing and coaching our Facebook writing team to produce their assignments centered on the topic of canine and feline cancer.
