A Golden Wish is a way for dog lovers to make an impactful difference in the lives of Golden Retrievers everywhere. A Golden Wish Apparel was created as a custom apparel line featuring and honoring the Golden Retriever dog breed based on A Golden Wish Founder, Faye Silverman’s love for Golden Retrievers. Upon the death of her first Golden Retriever, Joey (a.k.a. Papa) to Cancer (hemangiosarcoma) and then her second Golden Retriever, Nicky, to Cancer (hemangiosarcoma), Faye Silverman decided to dedicate her life to changing the statistics of disease in Golden Retriever dogs across the globe.
The goal of A Golden Wish Apparel is to raise money to support the Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Canine Lifetime Study, which is the first project to come from the Canine Lifetime Health Project at the Morris Animal Foundation, located in Denver, Colorado. Through this study, researchers work on life-saving explorations to better understand, prevent and treat cancer, and other medical conditions, in Golden Retrievers and all dog breeds.
“This study requires a long-term commitment from dog owners and their veterinarians,” said Michael Guy, DVM, MS, PhD study director, “We have the potential to learn valuable information that will not only improve canine health but will also significantly advance the entire field of veterinary medicine.”
