63-year-old David Fine suffers from terminal lung cancer. Now, in a moving cry for help, he is looking for a new home for his beloved dog Babs.

According to the Daily Mail, a man in Massachusetts suffering from terminal lung cancer has put out a desperate appeal for a new home for his beloved dog Babs. David Fine (63) was diagnosed last August and is hoping that someone in his area could take in Babs to help him through the transition.

A decade ago, the Shar Pei boxer mix Babs came into Fine’s life, as he tells the station “WJAR”. A friend had previously taken the dog in twice and then asked him to keep Babs in his garage. “She is the most important thing at this moment,” said Fine. He’s trying to find someone who is similar to him. It’s like trying to find a home for your own child.

After Fine retired from working as a carpenter in 2020, he and Babs realized his lifelong dream and went traveling. But during the trip, Fine became ill. He told WJAR that he had already suffered from chronic lymphocytic leukemia and had undergone treatment. A year later, he had a vascular disease in his legs that caused some of his arteries to be blocked.

Despite the diagnosis, Fine remains positive. He has come to terms with his situation, it is what it is. Chemotherapy would make him sick and would be no way to live. That’s why he’s now urgently looking for a new home for Babs before he dies.

The American Jennie Mann, who is committed to animal rescue, also became aware of David Fine and shared a heartbreaking call on her Facebook channel.

But cancer does not always end fatally, as it did for the 63-year-old. Robert’s case shows this. At just 19 years old, he was diagnosed with terminal lymphatic cancer. The strong and stressful chemotherapy had an effect on him, although the prognosis was bleak. Robert is now 40 and “fit as a fiddle,” he says.

After rapid weight loss, a doctor diagnosed Bella Johnston, then 14, with an eating disorder. The young woman suffers from a rare type of cancer that almost costs her life due to the misdiagnosis.
