UPDATE 8-26-2010—

Our darling girl Chloe was diagnosed with lymphoma on July 11. Lymphoma is a very aggressive form of cancer and has attacked all of her organs. The cancer attacked quickly; there was no sign of it only one month previously when she had her annual checkup and shots. Cheryl and I are brokenhearted and are going to do whatever is necessary to fight the cancer and give our sweet girl a full and happy life. We began chemo the next day at Veterinary Specialists of Texas in Dallas. Chloe has responded wonderfully and seems her old sweet self again but she MUST have chemo once a week for about six months. These treatments will cost over $6,000.00 in total!

WE NEED YOUR HELP in this fight!

Some of you know of the reversal of financial fortune our family has suffered over the last two years. Briefly, we had to declare bankruptcy last November due to business and personal financial losses. I was laid off in July from (they closed the Arlington and Dallas facilities) so our health insurance, life insurance, 125 plan all end this October. Thankfully I am on short-term disability but the monthly payment is barely enough to cover utilities. I have applied for disability with Social Security but won’t know for a few months. With the loss of vision in my left eye by the end of the year and having been diagnosed with morphea last year, a serious autoimmune disease, things are pretty tough financially.

Those of you who know us well know that we’re facing all of this with courage and a positive outlook. What we cannot face is the loss of our Sweet Baby Chloe! We cannot bear the thought of losing our Baby; she loves unconditionally and brings a great deal of happiness to our lives.

The total cost of Chloe’s chemo treatments will be over $6,000.00! We need your help in this fight for Chloe’s life. We applied to Canine Cancer Awareness, Inc. for help with Chloe’s chemo treatments and they have agreed to help with a wonderful and greatly appreciated donation of $800.00 for Chloe’s treatments. The Magic Bullet Fund also funded by tax-deductible donations from wonderful people like you has agreed to fund an additional $2400.00. Both organizations need help from wonderful people like you!

Chloe is doing wonderful. She completed treatment 9 yesterday (the heavy duty one) but is tolerating it well. Chloe’s next treatment is in two weeks.

God Bless All,
