Poochy Doos, LLC is happy to announce it has been selected to partner with Hope Lives! Our professional pet sitting team will be providing pet sitting and dog walking, to help care for the women they service diagnosed with breast cancer! Said Ann Jones, Owner of Poochy Doos, LLC, “We felt very privileged to be invited into the Hope Lives partnership. We have clients who have been directly touched by Hope Lives and this issue is so important to all women. They are an incredible organization and we’re very proud to support their Mission.”
The Hope Lives Breast Cancer Support Center, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization who’s mission is to provide those touched by breast cancer the support, knowledge, and care needed to complement their medical treatment. They fulfill their mission by paying for complementary care services and by educating all residents of their local community about the many available avenues of cancer support. Through their Complementary Care Program, they bring the resources of over 30 service and support providers straight to women with breast cancer. Their work ensures that women can receive post-diagnosis support and care. This includes lifestyle support such as housecleaning, pet sitting, dog walking and also much needed emotional support such as family and couples counseling.
Hope Lives is unique in that they focus on the post-diagnosis stage of a woman’s journey through breast cancer. There are many well-established organizations in the Fort Collins and Loveland communities that provide ongoing breast health and breast cancer diagnosis information and services. However, Hope Lives is the only charitable organization in Larimer County focused on providing breast cancer patients complementary care and lifestyle support for the duration of their treatment.
The Center was founded in 2001 by Lydia Dody, a Ft Collins businesswoman who had battled breast cancer. After her recovery, Lydia wanted to ensure that the approximately 200 women in Larimer County and Windsor, CO diagnosed each year receive complete post-diagnosis support and care.
Poochy Doos, LLC is excited to be added to their list of trusted, post-diagnostic service providers. Needless to say, when going through difficult life challenges, the support of our family, friends and yes – our pets, is so important to our healing process. We are here to provide pet sitting and dog walking to the women utilizing Hope Lives!
Please join us for the annual Hope Lives fund raiser, the Pink Boa! We look forward to seeing you there! See their website for more information!
