After T-cell immunotherapy helped Carleen Coulter’s dog Ty recover from cancer last month, Coulter made it her mission to help make the treatment available for more four-legged friends.
The Frankfort resident and pet blogger is to take another step towards that goal Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16, at the Christmas in July 5K race in Lisle, Illinois. Coulter is to walk and run a 24-hour race to raise money for the Perseus Foundation, a nonprofit that conducts research on pet cancer and works to help pet owners pay for the high costs of pet cancer treatment.
