A few months ago I took my beloved rescued 9 year old Yorki-Poo Allyson to the vet for a routine check-up. My vet shocked me when she said she felt a large tumor in her abdomen. She did an x-ray and confirmed two masses in her liver. She took blood and suggested an ultra sound. The ultrasound confirmed the tumors, and a needle biopsy confirmed cancer. She has recently had a successful surgery to remove these tumors. The next stage to improve the chances of her recovery is chemotherapy.
The costs of Allyson’s tests and surgery has left me with severe financial difficulties. I was laid off permanently in May and my savings is depleted. Allyson has done so much for me I can’t bear to see her suffer. I suffer from an illness and her companionship is part of my therapy. She is the love of my life and it is killing me that I am in a position that I can’t do everything possible to save her. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story and thank you in advance for any help you may provide.
