Save The Beebs
Beebee, The Beebs, 13, was recently diagnosed with lymphoma, which is treatable. She will require six to twelve months of chemotherapy, with the possibility of additional after-care. The treatments will begin at a specialist site in St. Louis within the next three weeks.
The initial estimated cost barring complications is about $2,900. Total estimated cost is over $4K as of January 15th.
Fortunately, Beebee has always been very healthy and sufferes no other maladies that would interfere with sucessful treatment and recovery. Her age is a factor but even the doctors say she could live three to four years longer.
Although she is as alert as ever, she has shown an unusual loss of weight and increased vomiting over the past few months. Most recently, she seemed to entirely lose her apetite, which prompted a vet's visit. She is what they call "ribs skinny" these days.
I am asking only for some support in this. She has been my companion since she was six weeks old. But I want to be able to make this decision with confidence, and medical charges for animals and this kind of treatment are far more than I had ever anticipated.
Any donation is appreciated.
This picture of Beebee was taken in early December when she had reached a low weight of under 11 pounds (down from 16).
If you are able, please donate as we are doubling Beebee's treatment schedule in hopes of seeing her into remission.
So far, she has regained some weight and filled out a bit. She got over the initial heavier treatments in the second phase and her numbers look very good. Please help me keep her that way and hopefully we will see her in remission.
She has recovered - she is eating and drinking and behaving alertly, normally - and the Vet is going to make some changes to her treatments and diet.
Please do not forget her. Any donation is appreciated and goes directly to her treatment and special diet.
She wouldn't sleep in her carrier and had to curl up next to me, against the door, still wrapped in her little hospital blankie. They had a little New Years hat on her but that didn't last long. Sorry for the dark pic but my phone has a cruddy flash.
Please donate what you can so that I can keep her treatments up as she gets into the next, difficult phase.
