I'm Vanessa Capone and I'm trying to raise money to help pay for a surgery to save my dogs life. Out of the blue, my dog, Romeo, was diagnosed with having a splenic mass that could rupture at any moment causing him to bleed out and die. I just turned 28, I work 5 jobs, I have two amazing dogs, and I want nothing more than to be able to give my dog a chance to live out the full life he was intended to live. Getting the surgery done to remove this splenic mass, aka "ticking time bomb", is the only chance my dog has to stay alive. I'm very dedicated to animals, I went to UNH for animal sciences, and my dog is my life. Any money that is raised will be used in order to finance the surgery to keep my dog alive. My dog means the world to me, he is my best friend and although it is inevitable that I will some day have to say goodbye, that day was not meant to be tomorrow or next week. Other than this mass growing on his spleen, he has a clean bill of health. He's always been there for me and I can't just give up on him now. If anyone can find it in their heart to contribute anything at all to this cause it would be greatly appreciated by both myself and Romeo. Every penny counts and if you can spare it to save a life that would be the best gift that anyone could give. So, whether you find this cause worthy of contributing to or not, I appreciate your time at the very least. PLEASE SAVE ROMEO! Thank you!!!
