A famous pug, a girl and an original song headline Horizon’s latest rare disease awareness campaign
Horizon is enlisting a celebrity dog and an aspiring storyteller for its latest rare disease campaign. Partnering with social media star Doug the Pug and a non-profit music publisher, Horizon is helping debut an original song from Leanor, a 7-year-old girl with Ewing sarcoma.
Leanor and her sister Dot wrote the story, “The Quest for the Golden Pearl,” that Doug the Pug’s owners Leslie Mosier and Rob Chianelli – who are also Nashville musicians – turned into the song that is premiering today. Sponsored through Horizon’s #RareIs effort and housed on the “Sing Me a Story” website, listeners can donate to download the song with proceeds going to the Doug the Pug Foundation which works with families of children with cancer and life-threatening disease. Horizon donated $35,000 to kick off the pledges.
