Bring my Icies to Hawaii!

In February,  I was working as a chef when I passed out in the middle of lunch service in Branson, Missouri. They discovered a large pineal region tumor in my brain.

I was told by many neurosurgeons that it was inoperable and that would have only a few years to live. My family sent me to Hawaii to live out my last years, but instead, I found a surgeon (Dr. Glazier) in Honolulu who successfully removed the tumor. Every single one of my symptoms is now gone.

I get to live!


Now I want to get my Icelandic Sheepdogs here to live with me as I start the next chapter of my life. They are ready to travel as ok 10/17, having completed the rabies quarantine and testing. 

It's expensive and I can't yet work or drive. I'm thanful for any help!

I've been writing about the whole experience at:

One year ago today, these two flew from Missouri to Hawaii. I'm so glad to have them with me! I'm pretty sure they are loving it here.

Just wanted to thank you all again for sending my girls to me. I'm a year out from the brain surgery, my MRI is clear, and we are all doing great! I remain so grateful for all of your help. Thanks again.

I was released from the hospital after my last surgery yesterday, and Disa arrived in Hawaii, completing the last installment of this saga!

Thank you all so much for making this happen. I couldn't be happier, and I think the girls will love it here.

Just wanted to send some photos and thank you all again for sending the girls to me here in Hawaii. They provide endless comfort and love, and I just adore having them with me.

We are hoping that Disa can come in January.

Thank you all again, and happy holidays.
