Linda Hogan Appointed New Spokesperson For Pet Cancer Foundation

June 1, 2009 Linda Hogan, Pink

Pet lover and reality television personality Linda Hogan has joined forces with Pink Paws for Life, a charitable organization committed to eliminating pet cancers. As their official spokesperson, the former "Hogan Knows Best" star is set to participate in a number of fundraising events in the coming months.

Linda understands the impact of such a grave diagnosis on four-legged friends and their owners. One beloved pooch from her own animal brood currently suffers from the disease.

In a recent statement, Linda expressed, "Going through cancer with a pet is a horrible experience for everyone involved. Pet cancer simply does not receive enough funding. Pink Paws For Life is changing that." According to statistics posted on the Pink Paws for Life website, only 25 percent of the 1.4 million animals stricken yearly by cancer will survive. That same shocking data is what drives Linda's spokesperson efforts.

"In this age of information and technology, it is my opinion that a 25 percent survival rate is unacceptable", Linda preaches on the website. "I'm optimistic that through research and education, a cure will be discovered".

Her mission, and that of the foundation she represents, is to ensure canine cancer becomes more treatable, more survivable and less frequent.

I love animals. It is something I am passionate about. Canine cancer has risen to epidemic levels. Keeping our pets healthy and cancer free is an extremely important endeavor for anyone who loves their animals like I do. I'm sure those who have gone through it or know someone who has, can relate

One of Linda's first duties as Pink Paws for Life celebrity spokesperson is to participate in a Philadelphia fundraising walk on August 16. Three additional walks are scheduled to take place in New York, Miami and Los Angeles this autumn.
