Friend's of Rocco

Dear friends,

Unfortunately Spencer Bard's beloved dog Rocco has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor that is occupying 15% of his brain. The diagnosis, MRI, hospital stay, and medications have left Spencer with a bill of over $7,000. Spencer has dedicated his life to resucing animals, and we want him to be able to enjoy whatever time he has left with Rocco, instead of worrying about vet bills.

Rocco is one of the most incredible dogs, and has spent years as a therapy dog. He frequently visits patients at Moffit Cancer Center to brighten their days, as well as people in retirement homes. All of the patients he visits at Moffit adore him and are instantly cheered up by his presence. In a cruel twist of fate, it's now Rocco who has cancer, and we want to do whatever we can to help him.

All money raised will go to Rocco's vet bills. A

ll contributions will make a difference, no matter how small. We are so incredibly thankful for all of those able to donate, and know if Rocco could speak he would be thankful too. 

Thank you,
Friends of Rocco
