What is A Golden Wish?
A Golden Wish is a way for dog lovers to make an impactful difference in the lives of golden retrievers everywhere. A Golden Wish was created as a custom apparel line featuring and honoring the golden retriever dog breed based on Faye Silverman’s love for golden retrievers. Upon the death of her first golden retriever, Joey (aka Papa) to Cancer, (hemangiosarcoma) and then her second golden retriever, Nicky, to cancer (hemangiosarcoma), Silverman decided to dedicate her life to changing the statistics of disease in golden retrievers and dogs across the globe.
“In May, 2015, my beloved golden retriever, Joey, was diagnosed with inoperable hemangiosarcoma of the heart,” said Silverman, “He passed away in July, 2015. With his passing, I lost one of my best friends. On the heels of losing Joey, one of my other dogs, Nicky, was diagnosed with lymphoma in March, 2017, and then also hemangiosarcoma. The thought of losing another pet to cancer was more than I could bear,” explains Silverman, “After learning more about other families struggling with the same situations, I decided to do something to help aid in the research. Through A Golden Wish I hope to be able to make a difference by donating 10 percent of all merchandise purchased to assist in the ongoing research of cancer in our dogs.”
