Bruiser's Surgery

To My Family, Friends and Acquaintances,

My son, best friend, partner in crime and I are in desperate need of your help. About 3 months ago I brought Bruiser to the vet to have a lump on his side checked and the results came back as a cancerous tumor. If you know me or even if you don't, you can spend 5 mins with me and know that this dog means the world to me. For the past 7 years we've been through some of the best and most difficult times of our lives together. I've raised and cared for him since he was 6 weeks old and have done EVERYTHING I can in his best interest. From playing, to long walks, to vet visits and vaccines, I've done whatever I can to provide him the life he deserves. I've come to an obstacle that I can't tackle alone unfortunately. In most situations I would have too much pride to ask for help but, I am reaching out to you because I'm between a rock and a hard place. Between rent, bills, food and everything else that it takes to survive in this world, I'm not capable of coming up with this money myself. I've been trying to come up with the cash but, I don't have any financial assistance. I pay for all of my own expenses and pride myself on doing so but, I'm only asking because I genuinely need it. The surgery is going to be expensive and with medication, treatment etc. it's going to average $2,000. Literally ANYTHING will help at this point and is greatly appreciated beyond what words can explain. This isn't just my dog, he's my family and we both can't express how much it would mean to us even if you contributed even the smallest amount. I know that times are rough for everyone, so if you can't then I would never hold it against you. Thank you for reading and hopefully you can assist me in making sure my boy is healthy. Can't say it enough, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

 

With Love,

Patrick Ames
