One Woman’s Story
Northrop terrier Chili was only five years old when she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on her abdomen last May. “Cancer” was not a word Marilyn Davison wanted to hear. Her husband had died of cancer very quickly, and a previous dog she had adopted just a few months after his death to bring some warmth into her life developed cancer and died after six months of treatment. She brought Chili home soon after, and now Chili, too, was diagnosed with the disease.
