The National Canine Cancer Foundation is a nationwide, contribution funded, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health issue in dogs by funding grants directly to cancer researchers who are working to save lives, find cures, better treatments and accurate, cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with canine cancer. The Foundation’s research grant program is to encourage and provide grant support for basic, pre-clinical and clinical research in high impact and innovative cancer research, which is intended to develop innovative approaches to a cure, treatment, diagnosis or prevention of cancers in dogs. The program fosters collaboration between basic and clinical scientists with the intent of enhancing the transfer of basic research findings to clinical usefulness. Company Overview Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs. Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation requires funding for important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics. Through a major project funded by the National Institute of Health, the mapping of the genome sequence of the dog has been complete. Knowing the mapping of every gene in the dog, gives researchers an advantage not yet achieved in humans. One Plus One – Sponsor and Entertainment George and Marion have used their approachable style and ability to field requests to the delight of audiences all over the world – literally. Having caught the bug to see the world and work on the high seas, they have performed on Carnival, Crystal and Princess Cruise Lines to name a few. They had the coveted distinction during this time of being the only American duo (band) to perform on the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) while it was under Japanese charter in Osaka, Japan. They were also chosen to be part of the Royal Viking Sun’s around the world cruise. Individually & collectively George and Marion have shared the stage with such oldies acts as The Platters, Joey Dee and the Starlighters, Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge, the Five Satins and other stars such as Jack Jones, Vic Damone, Barry Manilow, Howie Mandel and Clint Holmes. One of the highlights of their career was performing for His Serene Highness Prince Rainier and Prince Albert of Monaco, who at the time were vacationing in Florida. They live in South Florida where they entertain at venues with their extensive song list that runs the gamut from standards to oldies, country to disco, and Key West to today’s hits.
