This news item is about: Very few teaching hospitals are named after a pig — but the Nemo Farm Animal Hospital at Cornell is named for a very special former patient. Playful as a puppy even at 730 lbs., Nemo, a black and white Hampshire pig, became a porcine pioneer when lymphoma struck. As the first recipient of several unprecedented treatments and surgical techniques that extended and improved his life, Nemo became a case from which veterinarians learned, paving the way forward for future large animals to combat cancer.
