Loved By Suzanne Withey and Anne Stanek
Olive was a 5lb Maltese who was full of energy and loved everyone she met. When she was 3 years old, our veterinarian found a tumor on the roof of her mouth during a routine dental cleaning. We took Olive to the Washington State University (WSU) Veterinary teaching hospital where we met oncologist Dr. Rebekah Lewis. Olive underwent 3 weeks of radiation therapy to the roof of her mouth, which completely resolved the tumor. Thanks to Dr. Lewis and her team giving us the gift of time, we had Olive for 10 more wonderful, healthy, and happy years. We had to say goodbye to her in March of 2023, but it was not from cancer.
