Maggie May's Emergency Surgery Fund

Without surgery Maggie May would have died in 24 hours. It took a week and over $2,000 in medication and tests and vet visits to figure out that it was her gall bladder.  Emergency surgery, hospitalization, biopsys and blood tests, were a little over 8,000. Plus after costs. I'm not trying to fund it all - just the big piece of it!

My beloved Toulouse Latrec Cat (TLC) passed away last month and I couldn't bear losing Maggie. The surgeon told me she was close to death when the operated. I told them to go ahead... I'd find the money somewhere. Now here I am, asking you to help. Now Maggie May has a good chance of living another 4-7 years!

On Sunday, July 9, Maggie May was a happy girl exploring the beach and enjoying the sunshine.  

This was her after surgery. (July 16)
Those of you who know me, know I am not the kind of person to ask for financial help. Actually if you really know me you know I don't ask for help with anything. I'm kind of stubborn that way.  I'm usually the one giving. I've raised over $17K for the SPCA and give to KIVA (micro loans), Heart and Stroke, numerous animal fundraisers and Project Literacy.  Now I find myself in a very uncomfortable position of being on the other end and asking for help, from friends, family and even strangers.

For those of you who don't know me, I am a freelance writer, and recently moved to a new city. Maggie and her fur brother Jackson have been my support system. A furry pawed, wet nosed, support system, that gives more love than seems possible at times. Starting over has been hard, but they were always there for me.

Whatever you can give is appreciated. You can donate anonymously or send me a note. If you don't want to donate on here, you can contact me on FB and send a cheque. You can also send me an Etransfer.  I'll record all monies here.  All of it is appreciated beyond compare.
