She underwent chemotherapy at and was inspired by the pet visitors to the center, so much so that her family decided to get a new puppy to celebrate her first year cancer-free. “Maisie Grace has brought so much joy to our family and is a wonderful reminder of survivorship,” Beidman said. “Even though my active treatment is over, I still feel so supported by Fox Chase and I am grateful for everyone there, so I am thrilled to be able to give back by doing this,” she added.
