Help Deakon with his surgery

World, meet Deakon. This ever so handsome, playful, loving pup has recently been diagnosed with a tumor. While we are incredibly thankful that his tumors have been found to be benign (non-cancerous), our little man still finds himself in serious discomfort and possible danger every day from their presence.

He consistently experiences nasal discharge that can contain blood at times, difficulty breathing, and lack of appetite. If not treated will cause bone damage in his face. The causes of nasal polyps are unknown, which, unfortunately, prevents any specific prevention knowledge or techniques.

Deakon's veterinarian has recommended surgery to remove the polyps to alleviate his pain and discomfort, and prevent any possible damage that may occur to his snout's bone structure from the tumor's presence.

Deakon has always been an unconditional source of love and laughter for our family; he is our best friend, protector, and comforter. We will never be capable of expressing how deep our gratitude flows to all of those who have helped both Deakon and us along this journey, or to our friends, both old and new, who can continue to help provide support for the rest of the journey that lies ahead. No donation is too small.

Sincerely, from the very bottom of our hearts, we and Deakon thank you.
