Professor Stuart Helfand is the founder of Oregon Cancer Care for Animals (ORCCA), a foundation  dedicated to the study and treatment of cancer in companion animals.

Dr. Helfand and his oncology team have created a calendar in honor of the many pets who have been treated for cancer at the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital. It features photos of some of the courageous animals who touched the hearts of the hospital staff and includes moving testimonies from the pet’s owners. “It is with a sense of love, caring, and optimism that we embarked on this project,” says Helfand.

The calendar also includes interesting and surprisingly beautiful shots of cancer cells. You can purchase a calendar for a suggested donation of $10. They are available in the main lobby of Magruder Hall. All proceeds from the sale of the calendars go to support ORCCA’s mission of discovery, investigation, and improved treatment for companion animals with cancer.
