Now 10 years old, Daisy has successfully detected over 550 cases of cancer and is being awarded for her priceless contributions to the lives of others. The keen-nosed pup was recently given the Blue Cross Medal for her work in the field of cancer prevention and detection.

Along with the 550 cases, Daisy was also the first to sniff out owner Dr. Claire Guest’s breast cancer. The chief executive of Medical Detection Dogs, Guest, who also helped trained Daisy, is forever grateful for what her pet has done for her and hundreds of others.
