In 2016 I attended the InSitu Foundation's Bio-Dog Medical Scent Detection Training course with the focus of learning to train dogs in the field of Cancer Detection. The course material was as thrilling and eye opening in more ways than I could have hoped for. I graduated with 100% and returned home excited to share what I had learned with the world.
I started with the Awareness Campaign of 2017, aimed at teaching people about what the dogs could do and sharing the exciting potential that they held for Saving Lives in the world of medicine.
Here are a few highlights!
1. Amazing accuracy rates! These dogs are detecting cancer with as high as 99% accuracy, while at the same time giving true negatives (the determination that someone does Not have cancer) with equally amazing results.
2. Non-Invasive testing. The dogs are able to use samples of breath, urine or blood to determine the presence of cancer in the human body. No uncomfortable screenings, no painful biopsies, and thus no reason Not to go to the doctor and get checked out. ;)
3. Versatility. The silent killers need no longer slip under the radar; the dog's nose presents an opportunity to offer the First screening methods for many types of cancer.

I have been honored to speak to many, many people; in conferences, at the Relay for Life, and in general conversation as I travel. Everyone is always eager to hear about the science behind the miracle of a dog's nose and all of them ask me the same question, "How can I help?"
"Tell people!" I answered, "Spread the word about Cancer Detection Dog Training!"
And I am glad to say that many of them did. :)
But now it is 2019 and it is time to change the answer to the question, "How can I help?"
And so the Call to Action Campaign begins!
It is time to gather together people who want to make a difference in the world, people who have the time and skills to dedicate towards helping saving lives in their own way. It is time to find our Board of Directors and build the Non Profit Organization that will enable us to reach out to doctors and researchers!
There is so much work to be done and so many people that want to help, but only so much that can be accomplished until a few key things have been completed first. We need official status; we need skilled help to build a successful organization; we need to make our stand so that we can move forward!!
For those of you that have come to this page, I thank you for your support! Every little bit helps. Funds raised will go towards the Call to Action Campaign by means of; travel expenses, renting space, and conference materials such as business cards and pamphlets. This will enable me to reach out further, speak to more people and hopefully find the ones who will help to reach our goal.
