The human was not happy when he learned that I was fighting diabetes. He was worried about what that meant for my quality of life and his. But he soon learned it was not too difficult, and that a few extra minutes each day would mean I could live a happy and long life.
Humans who learn their felines have cancer face something similar, but it is much more challenging. These felines have a disease that can kill them. And their humans get very worried.
Fortunately for these humans, a kind human whose feline, Brodie, lost his battle with cancer, started a fund to help. Cancer treatments can require many green paper things, and The Brodie Fund helps with that. But they do much more than that.
The human behind The Brodie Fund knows the difficulties humans whose felines have cancer have to fight through. They help provide emotional support to the humans who must deal with these challenges. They develop “a strong bond with the families” of these felines. And many of these families stay in touch with The Brodie Fund and send updates on how their feline is doing.
One human whose cat, Moby, was battling cancer endured a lot of teasing from his friends about how much he cared about his cat. I say he needs new friends because they are not worthy of his attention. But even if he does need new friends, after a year of treatment, he sent an email to let The Brodie Fund know Moby was doing well.
Sometimes, however, even the most dedicated humans and white coated humans cannot help a feline with cancer win. When that happens, The Brodie Fund provides free grief counseling to the human who lost their feline.
