Dear Howard and Marna - Thank you so much for all your generous help, guidance and compassion you showed us in trying to save our 7 year old German Shepherd "Sascha" who died June 7th, 2009 from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Together, we did everything possible to save her. We had complete trust in Dr. Suter at North Carolina and were ready to wrap Sascha and send her on a plane to Dr. Suter. However, we unfortunately lost the battle to "ALL" and we gave her the peaceful end this beautiful, affectionate and loyal Shepherd deserved. Not too long from now, we will send our donation to your fund, in hopes of preventing more dogs from dying from this horrible disease. We will never forget you and the Maverick Foundation, set up in Maverick's honor, to help others like Maverick from losing their life at an early age. I am so sorry for your loss, my loss and the loss of so many others reading Maverick's story.

I am so sorry that Maverick lost his fight with this terrible sickness. On December 29,2008 I was told by my vet that my beloved 2 year old labrador retriever had acute lymphocytic leukemia. He was playful, eating and acting like a 2 year old should. He had 2 chemotherapy treatments but he lost his battle just 11 days after finding out he had ALL. He passed away on his own January 8, 2009. The pain of losing him is still so great. He was my companion who I miss more than words can say. Maverick was very lucky to have such a caring and loving family. Thank you for putting his story on the web.

I live in Durham NC and just saw on the news that Maverick lost his battle. I'm sitting here in tears ... for Maverick and for you. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Maverick was so fortunate to have such a loving family. Also -- thank you for starting this fund. What a great cause and a great way for Maverick to help others.

My name is Leslie Fincher and I have a ten year old weimaraner, Finley, who is my whole world. He was treated at the NC State Vet School as well. Without them I would have not had the opportunities to save his life. I saw Mavericks story the night of his surgery on the local news and was so very happy to see not only had they made such a huge medical breakthrough, but they had done it with a Weim! Mavericks story is a ture inspiration. My husband very suddenly passed away in December of last year at only 33 years old. I had all memorials sent to the vet school in Steves honor. The money is to go to animals who have a chance but the owners cannot financially afford it. I am so very sorry for your loss and know it must be so difficult. Please know that he touched alot of people and because of your attempts to save him, doctors now have new knowledge to save other pets. I will be attending the Coat of Excellence dinner at the vet school this Thursday. We will all be thinking of you and lifting Maverick up! Best Wishes. Leslie Fincher
