“I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.” – Spider Man 2
OK!!! Now that I have quoted Spider Man movie, let me introduce you to a club/society of people who are the REAL HEROES … n NO … they don’t fly around buildings or run faster than a speeding bullet ….
They do something that is much much cooler than all that .. 🙂
THEY ……. (wait for it …………) THEY FIGHT CANCER!!!! How AWESOME IS THAT???
Technically speaking … they actually help Cancer patients fight cancer n that too with the help of our furry friends … NOW THAT’S WHAT U CALL HEROISM …
Please know that: Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide and is expected to increase by 500% in the coming 25 years.
So, without further ado ……. First time Introducing ……..

Now you might ask ….. wat is the connection between Supporting Cancer Patients and Kennel??? Well, Bloomberg Kennel donates funds generated through it’s kennel breeding.
