Grateful Clients: Dave and Eddylee Scott
Dave and Eddylee Scott,
Heather Davis ('09 DVM) and "Cassie"
Some friends throw the best parties. For two years in a row,
our friends Dave and Eddylee Scott of Anacortes, Wash. threw a fabulous
party to raise money for the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
They hosted the first event in 2010, which raised nearly $7,000 to honor
their dog "Cassie" and the veterinarians who cared for her when she was diagnosed with
Two years earlier, the Scotts were referred to the WSU Veterinary
Teaching Hospital by their veterinarian Dr. Lance Campbell (’99 WSU DVM)
for a tumor on the top of their then 7-year old Golden Retriever’s head.
Cassie received surgery and radiation therapy, but the tumor returned 10
months later. With all standard options exhausted, Cassie began a
Palladia (toceranib phosphate) regimen, a new cancer drug therapy, and
pamidronate, an osteoporosis treatment in September 2009. These new
therapies combined to keep her symptom-free and enjoying life.
The Scotts have continued their commitment to the WSU Teaching Hospital
and to the medical staff who helped their beloved Cassie. They
hosted their second event in 2011 raising $14,000 for the Veterinary
Teaching Hospital. Shortly after the 2011 event, Cassie finally lost her
nearly 2-year battle with cancer.
Both Dave and Eddylee are exceedingly grateful for the exceptional care
they received from everyone at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
So much so, they want to throw one more party.
"The caring, compassion, and professionalism of the entire WSU VetMed
staff-the receptionist, students, doctors, and the Dean-formed the
foundation of this enduring relationship with the Teaching Hospital,"
said Dave Scott. " We plan to help host another event in 2013."
