For each PuppyUp Walk, the Event Manager and their Walk Team select both a Human Cancer Hero and a Canine Cancer Hero, to be honored during the Walk ceremonies.
These Heroes are chosen because of their exemplary attitude towards their particular type of cancer, showing bravery and hopefulness in their fight against this terrible disease.
This year’s Canine Cancer Hero is Che. His story of how he was touched by cancer is shown below:
Che will be 11 years old this November. He is an English bulldog mix, adopted by his daddy when he was 6 years old. Che is a stubborn old mush with a heart of gold. Because of his uncanny ability to tear anything at all apart (toys, cardboard boxes, the floor!), he’s been lovingly nicknamed, Che the Destroyer by family.
