Grace is an 8 year old English Springer Spaniel.

UPDATE 5-14-2011—

On April 10 2011 I took Grace for what was to be a regular check up. Instead the vet asked me if I had noticed her lymph nodes in her neck and behind her knees the were enlarged. I was then referred to a specialty hospital, there they did a work up on Grace and confirmed that she had lymphoma. Being that she was admitted through the Emergency department of the facility she got one of the available openings to see a specialist the next morning. Grace is very sweet and mild mannered and was quite a trooper through every thing. After her first treatment she is in remission.

We are doing the Wisconsin-Madison Protocol and Grace is doing very well. I am looking at cleaning out my house and get rid of things at a flea market or yard sale in order to raise money for Graces treatment. Grace is doing well and tolerating the treatment well and currently is still in remission. Grace is such an important part of my life, my children like to tease me that she is the daughter that I never had. This diagnosis was really difficult to deal with because my father passed away 2 weeks before her diagnosis. The thought of losing one of my best friends was over whelming, and I sobbed for hours after initially hearing the diagnosis.

The treatments have been a financial hardship but I will keep doing what I need to to be able to provide Grace with the excellent care that she has been receiving. After over a month of treatments she is acting like her sweet self again. It is wonderful to see her being her old self again.

I wanted to thank your wonderful organization for their help with Grace. She is going for week 9 of the Madison Wisconsin Protocol. She is doing great and she even feels well enough that she brought me one of her toys and wanted to play. Again thank you so very much!
