It’s one of the most heartbreaking decisions you could ever have to make: Saying goodbye to a beloved pet suffering from cancer because you don’t have enough money to cover the bills.

When Sally Williams’s cat, Brodie, was diagnosed with cancer, she was able to pay for treatment, giving him an extra pain-free 13 months. After his death, Williams (seen at right with Brodie) was driven to help families who didn’t have the same resources—and The Brodie Fund was born.

All of the participating veterinarians currently listed on the fund’s site are located in the New York metro area, but Williams says the group is “working exceedingly hard to expand, as the need is great. Over 15 million dogs and cats will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone.” thebrodiefund.org
