Welcome to the Amanda Benford Cure for Canine Cancer website!
The Amanda Benford Cure for Canine Cancer Fund was established to raise proceeds to aid in the research and development to find a cure for canine cancer. We are proud to be part of the FETCH a Cure foundation in Richmond, Virginia.
How we got our start...
Amanda Benford was the beloved fur-child of George and Patty Benford. A beautiful border collie and chow mix, she joined the family in 2004. Her start in life was rough, but you would never know it! Miss Amanda was a social butterfly who enjoyed travel, meeting new friends, long walks and spending time with her little sister Gretchen.
Following a beautiful morning walk on Saturday, April 13, 2013, Amanda had a sudden onset of illness and a rush visit to the emergency vet determined that she was hemorrhaging due to a ruptured cancerous tumor. It is now her parent's mission to find a cure in her memory!
