Dec 2019 - "Adoptive Cell Therapy"
I hope you share my pride in what we have accomplished this year. We came together with our ideas, our time, our resources, and energy. As a result of your generous support, GREYlong sent a check for $21,000 to the University of Minnesota, College of Veterinary Medicine in support of a study entitled "Adoptive Cell Therapy using Genetically Engineered Natural Killer Cells for Osteosarcoma" (Bruce Walcheck, PhD)
September 2015 - New Website | Event Round-ups | Pupsicles for the Summer
We are so excited to announce the launch of a bold new look for the GREYlong website. We hope you will agree that this new look reflects the energy the GREYlong family brings to our goal of preventing, treating and curing canine cancer through good science.
January 2015 - Amazing | GREYlong’s 2015 Study | Event Roundups
Our amazing team helped GREYlong have a record year in 2014. GREYlong distributed over $20,000, representing an
increase of $5,000 from 2013, to the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Minnesota Veterinary schools to support two studies on osteosarcoma and to continue funding a study on hemangiosarcoma.
September 2014 - Seasonal Allergies | Maypoling 4 R Mutts and The Gathering
It is that time of the year. I love the fall. The leaves change colors; the weather cools. The dogs love the long walks in the brisk air. It is the “ragweed” time of year that I dread. Two of our dogs, Muffin and Murphy, had fall allergies.
May 2014 - Osteosarcoma Vaccine Tested at the University of Pennsylvania Shows Promise
In conversations earlier this year with Dr. Nicola Mason, assistant professor of medicine at University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, we learned how a vaccine composed of modified bacteria called listeria, is being used to treat OS. Great results with Sasha still alive at 690 days post treatment and three dogs over 600 days.
June 2013 - Recapping the Gathering
It is a play day extraordinaire. The lake holds such attraction for most of the dogs. The pups leap into the water; some paddle about; some lie chest deep in the lake. There are informal dog races around the fence, through the pavilion. Then there are the meeter greeter pups who think life is all about a cuddle and a pat.
September 2012 - GREYLong’s First On-line Auction
When supporters live in different parts of the country, it’s difficult to have events and fundraisers that can include everyone. That is, if everyone has to be physically present. The beauty of an on-line auction, which GREYlong will host October 1 – 7, is that everyone can participate.
May 2012 - Maypolin' 4 R Mutts
We wrapped up our fifth annual rummage sale, our most successful ever. Donations came in slowly and we feared the worst. Had GREYlong already cleared everyone’s garages and closets? You proved us wrong. We set up a virtual living room with an antique settee and
side chairs, wood/glass cocktail table, and upholstered dining chairs.
January 2010 - Getting a Grip on Bone Cancer
The word ―osteosarcoma‖ is all too familiar in greyhound circles, where pet parents mourn the loss of thousands of beloved dogs each year. The one glimmer of hope in the fight against this deadly disease is the ongoing innovative research that will lead to new treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
