Keri Goldman - President & Founder
Paws 4 A Cure was created in memory of my Chow Chow; Nikko who lost his battle with cancer in 2007.
"When Nikko was diagnosed with cancer there were not any organizations out there available to me for assistance with his veterinary care. I sold my personal belongings, ate from food banks and went without so that Nikko could have multiple surgeries and follow-up veterinary care over a 5 year period of his cancer that returned several times. After Nikko received his angel wings, I knew what I had to do, help others facing the same situation. No animal should go without veterinary care because their parent cannot afford it. Being able to re-focus my attention on assisting other pet parents in need of veterinary care has helped me through the tremendous grief I feel of Nikko's passing and Chee as well. They will forever live on in my heart and through the Paws 4 A Cure dogs and cats that we are able to help. This is all for you"
Dave Maldonado - Vice President
Debbie Bresnahan - Secretary
Debbie has been a Paws 4 A Cure volunteer since 2008. Debbie's beloved dog Dutchess lost her battle with cancer in 2007 and Griffin in 2014. Debbie is the proud mom to her mixed breed, Pedey.
"I originally got involved with Paws 4 A Cure when my dog was diagnosed with cancer and they were helping pets with cancer. I am now involved because I am fortunate enough to be able to afford pet insurance for my dog and also have the means if anything happened to take care of him. This is something that could change at any time, and it is reassuring to know there is an organization that would be there to help if I needed to ask for it.'
Joelle Corbridge - Treasurer
Joelle joined the Paws 4 A Cure board of directors in March of 2015. Joelle is a former Paws Recipient that has been helping with the Paws 4 A Cure taxes. Joelle is a great asset to Paws 4 A Cure. She is the loving mom to Rocky.
"Paws 4 A Cure helped save my Rocky's life. Being involved is a way to help give back to a wonderful organization!"
Amanda Amirault - Committee Member
Amanda has been volunteering since 2009. Amanda is the mom to Howie the one-eyed cat. Amanda's beloved Chocolate Lab, Wilson received his angel wings in 2014 after a battle with cancer.
"I became involved with Paws 4 A Cure after my own dog overcame a serious medical problem. I was so grateful for his health, that I wanted to volunteer my time to help other pets in need of veterinary care."
