What was the inspiration behind Paws 4 A Cure?

To uncover the inspiration behind this magnificent organization, we have to go to the founder herself, Keri Goldman.  In her own words, "Paws 4 A Cure was created in memory of my Chow Chow; Nikko who lost his battle with cancer in 2007."

"When Nikko was diagnosed with cancer there were not any organizations out there available to me for assistance with his veterinary care. I sold my personal belongings, ate from food banks and went without so that Nikko could have multiple surgeries and follow-up veterinary care over a 5 year period of his cancer that returned several times. After Nikko received his angel wings, I knew what I had to do, help others facing the same situation. No animal should go without veterinary care because their parent cannot afford it. Being able to re-focus my attention on assisting other pet parents in need of veterinary care has helped me through the tremendous grief I feel of Nikko's passing and Chee as well. They will forever live on in my heart and through the Paws 4 A Cure dogs and cats that we are able to help. This is all for you"
