No longer by our side but forever in our hearts.
We are all saddened by the passing of our beloved Gerben, who left us on April 23rd after living with Canine Lymphoma. All of us here at the Gerben Foundation wish to reach out to everyone about the importance of helping dogs like Gerben, and to find a cure for this terrible disease.
Help Us Eliminate Canine Lymphoma
Canine lymphomas are fatal cancers that begin in a dog’s lymphatic system. Presently, there are treatments but no cure for these disorders.
The Gerben foundation fights these illnesses by supporting, with financial grants, selected research projects that are working to develop better treatments or a cure. We are also committed to identifying the genes that make Canine Lymphoma more prevalent in some breeds than others. By identifying them, we can work with breeders, helping them to breed out the genetic materials that contribute to the onset of canine lymphomas.
As a byproduct of our efforts to cure canine lymphoma, we may be able to help accelerate new treatments and a cure for the many forms of human lymphoma.
Joint us in our fight to defeat canine lymphoma by making a contribution today
