A Tribute to Jack Flash
This page is a living tribute to my beloved Jack Flash. In May of 1997, when Jack was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy, I vowed to turn the world upside down to find something to help my loving, loyal and faithful companion. I could not, and would not accept the neurologists statement, that there was nothing to be done about this disease... I began to search the web for anything that could help Jack Flash. When I found Dr. Clemmons, at the University of Florida, doing research on Degenerative Myelopathy, I was beside myself with joy! It was then, I realized that Jack Flash and I had a mission, a very important mission. We had to alert people, owners of DM dogs, that they should not give up, or "write off" their dogs that had been diagnosed with DM... Certainly, if I had been told there was nothing to be done about this dread disease, others were in all probability, being told the same... It was with that realization, that the DM Support Group was born...,
Hope this helps. Our group is a close knit, caring group. If you have to deal with this disease, its easier with support..... May all our dogs live a thousand years..
