Because Cancer Affects Both People and Pets... Introducing One Cure

OneCureOne Cure is a new initiative founded on the principle that cancer affects all creatures and that treatment breakthroughs come through collaboration between scientists and doctors who are working with both people and animals.

Our hope is that many join in our efforts to eradicate cancer in people and pets through a charitable gift to One Cure or through the purchase of One Cure collars, leashes and other pet-friendly products.

All charitable gifts to One Cure and all proceeds from One Cure products will benefit the clinical trials program at CSU Flint Animal Cancer Center.

Progress in the fight against cancer requires knowledge gained from both laboratory and clinical research, which comes together in clinical trials. These studies aim to bring new, promising treatments to cancer patients with the goal of improving outcomes and reducing side effects. At the FACC, we see more than 1500 new cancer patients every year. Annually, about 400 patients enroll in these carefully-monitored clinical trials, each one specific for their cancer type. These canine and feline patients are pioneers in cancer research, helping us move cutting-edge treatments off the laboratory bench and into clinical practice; providing hope to the next generation of animal and human cancer patients.

Emily Brown's Story
Emily BrownEmily Brown, a Colorado Springs native, was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) in her spine when she was 10 years old. Her story is unique in that her treatment involved the collaboration of veterinary and human oncologists. Having run out of treatment options, Emily's medical team contacted Dr. Stephen Withrow at the FACC, searching for hope. A new treatment, developed for dogs with bone cancer, showed promise for Emily and was given on a compassionate-use basis. She believes it saved her life.
