Medical Fund for Dharma

Over the past 5 weeks, medical care to find out what is wrong with my 5 year old dog, Dharma, has exceeded $3800.

She has survived countless tests, cardiac arrest, and exploratory surgery; none of which has given us an answer to what is wrong.

She's currently in an animal hospital while the doctors try to figure out what's wrong with her. At this point, the estimates I've been given will put the total for her care at approximately $6800.00.

If someone had told me 5 weeks ago that her medical bills would be approaching $4000+, after I picked my jaw up off the ground, I likely would have made my decisions differently. I would have asked more questions, done more research. But I didn't. And now I have to figure out how to come up with the money because it would be a tragedy for this dog to be incredibly strong through all that she's endured, only to be put down because I couldn't come up with the money to finish what we started.

It's hard to ask for help, but you can be sure that I will pay it forward at every opportunity, as I have always made it a policy to do. I'm taking a leap of faith because Dharma deserves a chance.

Thank you.
