My husband, Matthew Athas, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on June 28, 2022, of a pulmonary embolism. As many already know, our Golden Retrievers were Matt's world. They were his babies and the air in his lungs. Having lost our first two Goldens, Tucker and Tyson, to cancer in 2019 and 2021, respectively, The Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study has always been of extreme importance to Matt. This is a breed that is plagued by cancer. Statistically, 9 out of 10 Goldens will succumb to cancer. I have set up this fundraiser in Matt's name to honor his life and his love for his Goldens. All donations will go directly to the Morris Animal Foundation in Matt's name.
