🔃 @nbclx | Best friends Tracy Jackson and her beloved dog, Chancellor, are battling cancer together. ❤️ In October 2018, Chancellor was diagnosed with lung cancer. In April, Tracy was diagnosed with breast cancer and Chancellor’s cancer came back during her chemo treatments.
Chancellor’s chemo pills were making him sick, and Tracy didn’t like watching her best friend suffer so she took him off the pills.
Now, Tracy is planning to rent an R.V. and take Chancellor on a road trip to spend his last few months together 😭

#NoPlasticChallenge 🔃 via @nbclx | Plastic forks, plastic bottles, plastic bags — everyday items used across the globe are overwhelmingly made with plastic.
According to plasticoceans.org, over 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year and about half of that is for single-use purposes.
Plastic finds its way to our #oceans, which adversely impacts our #environment and wildlife, and can be deadly to both land and water species. Humans can limit their use of plastic to solve the problem. 🌊🌊🌊
Knowing the harmful impact plastic has on our planet, NBC LX storyteller @biancagraulau challenged herself not to use plastic for a week.
