Cancer Survivor's 'Wish' For A Puppy Comes True

As it is, this story is already heartwarming, but what makes it all the more special is that the person who sponsored this 'wish' is a six-year-old cancer survivor herself.

Lion Has Radiation Treatment For Skin Cancer At a Private Human Hospital In Africa

A lion, named Chaos, at Lory Park Zoo and Owl Sanctuary in South Africa, started undergoing cancer treatment this week. The treatment was received at a private hospital in South Africa - and he was smuggled in by the back door to avoid frightening human patients. The 16-year-old lion was unconscious and strapped face down on a trolley as he was brought in to treat lesions on his nose. The 570lb beast was being treated by the five-strong team of radiotherapists and one oncologist in the unusual setting because there are no radiation facilities for animals in South Africa. The photos are truly emotional.

Researchers at an Ontario university used 3D-printing technology to replace the majority of a dog's skull in what's believed to be the first surgery of its kind. The owner of Patches, a 9-year-old dachshund, said the dog had a brain tumour the size of an orange that would have been fatal if not treated.

OMIGOSH! What an amazing thing to do for a little girl! This made my day :) From Seattle Children's Hospital:

Maga is a cat-loving teen patient with cancer at Seattle Children's Hospital. She's had to be in the hospital many times, and during her stays what she misses most is her own cat Merry. We asked our Facebook fans to share their favorite cat photos with us, and got an awesome response -- 3,000+ photos! We used these pictures to create this "cat immersion" for Maga -- an audio/visual experience to bring thousands of "virtual" cats to Maga's room.

Our thoughts are with you, Maga!
