This was one of the hardest decisions we've made in my lives and it pains us to ask for any kind of financial assistance, but we're in dire need and desperately want to see our little boy Alonzo walk again. On Monday night Alonzo was being his usual playful self showing loads of affection, but while jumping he suddenly dropped to the ground and let out a cry. As he got up we noticed his hind legs were walking with a wobble and the very next morning he completely lost all movement and feeling so we took him to the vet and after an examination it was determined he had ruptured his spinal cord at 3 different locations. So after asking the doctor numerous questions about the different options, we ultimately decided that we'd like to take the chance and opted for surgery because the other option absolutely saddened us with the thought of Alonzo being confined to a wheelchair permanently. The cost of the surgery is between $4,800-$6,300 and will surely being on the high end of the quoted estimate due to multiple damaged locations on his spinal cord, but the good news is we were able to pay $2,300 out of pocket so we'd only need to raise $4,000. If you could help, we'd be forever grateful!! Thank you.
