Local Woman Starts Company to Support Research for Canine Cancer

(Providence, Rhode Island) – Rhode Islander and animal lover, Faye L. Silverman has launched, A Golden Wish, a local company which aids in the research of canine cancer, the leading cause of death for dogs. A Golden Wish began as a custom designed apparel line with a fabulous logo and the idea of simply honoring the loss of Faye L. Silverman’s first golden retriever, Joey. With the passing of her second golden retriever, Nicky, to cancer, Silverman decided to partner with the Morris Animal Foundation in order to make a difference in the quality of life for all dogs.

Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study A Golden WishResearchers at the Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime study are working to identify the factors associated with the development of cancer and other major diseases in all dog breeds. Through Faye’s relationship with Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, she has become an official donation partner. She is working to help support identifying and understanding canine cancer risk factors, which is the first step toward better canine cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

“The cancer rate for all dogs has skyrocketed in recent years. Following the loss of my own two precious Golden Retrievers due to Hemangiosarcoma, I knew I wanted to do something that would help make a difference in the lives of canines. A Golden Wish donates 10% of all purchases to the Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime study, which researches many types of cancers found in our four-legged children,” said Founder and President, Faye L. Silverman. A Golden Wish sells apparel, such as hats, t-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts (many colors), dog collars, dog leashes and dog toys, as well as other merchandise online at www.agoldenwish.com.

“Unfortunately, we all know, too well, what it is like to lose a beloved pet. I want to do my part to help prevent any of us from ever losing another dog to cancer. I hope Rhode Islanders and people across the country join me in this fight,” Silverman added.
