Online PR News – 06-April-2010 – – Fifty percent of the 65 million dogs in the U.S. are expected to have cancer in their lifetimes. Many caretakers are not able to afford the high cost of treatment for their dog's cancer. The Magic Bullet Fund is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to families who have a dog with cancer but cannot afford treatment. The fund runs solely on the generous donations from its sponsors and volunteers. To date, MBF has helped almost 100 dogs receive cancer treatment.
