Copper just completed the BMT at NCSU with Dr. Suter.
We had a a heck of a time getting the cancer into remission but finally the MOPP protocol did the trick!
Anyone who has a dog with Lymphoma should give NCSU Dr. Suter a call.

Thank you for sharing your touching and inspirational story about Maverick. I am so sorry for your loss. We found out three days ago that our 5 year old dog, Willie, has Lymphoma. He is currently at NC State overnight receiving his first chemo treatment. The wonderful vets there discussed the BMT procedure with us, and I began to pray instantly that Willie would be blessed with that possibility. After reading your story, I do feel hope, a strong hope that I did not have three days ago. If Willie does go into remission, I can only hope that he is able to be put on the waiting list and given a chance at a cure. Thank you again for sharing your story, it made a difference to me.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Maverick sounds like a wonderful companion and part of your family. Our dog, Willie, is at NC State as I write this receiving his first chemo treatment for Lymphoma. We discussed BMT today and I researched as soon as I got home of course. Your story, as well as Cody's, has given me hope that I didn't have yesterday. We pray now that our Willie will go into remission and be put on the waiting list for the BMT. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
