Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338Meisha

Dedicated to funding research into an often fatal blood disorder in dogs

Canine AIHA/IMHA (autoimmune/immune-mediated hemolytic anemia) is a serious, often fatal blood disorder. In dogs with AIHA/IMHA, abnormal antibodies stick to the red blood cells and cause the body to believe the red blood cells are a "foreign invader." The dog's immune system attacks the red blood cells and destroys them, leading to anemia. Scientists estimate more than 50 percent of dogs with AIHA/IMHA will die from the condition, usually within weeks of diagnosis.

Meisha's Story

Meisha, a lovable lab/terrier/spaniel mix, was diagnosed with AIHA in January, 1992 when she was 3 years of age. She beat the odds and lived for nearly 10 years after her AIHA diagnosis. After her death in November 2001, my husband David and I vowed to help stop this disease from taking the lives of other dogs. To this end we established the Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation, which is dedicated to funding research into this deadly canine blood disorder. Our goal is to raise one MILLION dollars for research into preventing, treating and hopefully one day curing Canine AIHA/IMHA. The Meisha’s Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation has sponsored or cosponsored 17 studies on the disease, including 4 Veterinary Student Scholar Studies.
