LEGACY OF A RESCUED BEAGLE
In fall of 2012 a woman and her rescued Beagle touched my heart. Teresa Rhyne, author of “The Dog Lived (and So Will I)” tells a very touching and inspirational story of their fight against cancer. Just when Seamus, her beagle, was finished with his year long treatment of surgeries and chemotherapy and was declared cancer-free, Teresa herself, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She chronicles both their journeys and their fight against the ‘big C’ with compassion, strength and humor. Unfortunately, Seamus’s cancer returned in a new form and he lost his battle in March, 2013. But because she shared their stories with all of us, Seamus will live on in our hearts forever. So inspired was I after reading her memoir, and learning of his passing that Sydney and I decided to dedicate a Survivor SPoT t-shirt to Seamus in honor of all cancer survivors, because whether human or canine, YoU are Survivor SPoTs to us. You must all read her inspirational story, “The Dog Lived (and So Will I)” because you too, will be encouraged to fight, laugh and maybe even share a piece of toast with your beloved dog. Seamus, this one’s for YoU “AAaArrRrrrRROOOooooOooo!”
I’ve long admired the message and the art of Alicia’s “Be Your Own Spot” company. I’m thrilled she’s chosen to honor my beloved beagle Seamus on her “Survivor Spot” shirt, letting his memory endure and helping other dogs diagnosed with cancer by donating a part of the sale proceeds to The Riedel & Cody Fund. Seamus was an extraordinary dog who survived cancer eight years longer than his prognosis and inspired me throughout my own battle with breast cancer. Now, through Survivor Spot, my diabolically cute “Seamus the Famous” can continue to inspire others. I’m very touched, and Seamus would give you a big “AARRRROOOOOOOOOOOOO.” Thank you, Alicia & Sydney!
Alicia and Teresa have teamed up with The Riedel & Cody Fund to make sure that all canine cancer patients have a chance at recovery by donating 20% of proceeds from our Survivor SPoT t-shirt directly to The Riedel & Cody Fund, so they can continue to fund treatments for canine cancer patients and their families. In doing so, we will help raise awareness about the 12 million dogs who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
