Help cure Eli's bone Cancer

On January 10, 2013 we learned that Eli had a large tumor growing on his pelvis and it was a complete shock. he had been hesitant to jump on the bed and in the car, but was otherwise a pretty active 8 year old dog and we thought maybe he was just starting to get a little arthritis, but his x-rays told a different story. After 2 seperate biopsies and a ct scan we are happy to say that Eli has a chondrosarcoma, a more rare slow spreading cancer that has a decent prognosis with treatment. We have an appointment to start radiation treatment at the Colorado State Univeristy Veterinary teaching hospital on March 11th. We didn't want to ask people for help, but as you can imagine the cost of diagnosining his cancer was more than we were expecting and we haven't even begun his treatment. We have done almost everything we can to scrape together the money needed for his treatment, apply for credit cards, cash out vacation pay, working extra shifts, and even paying our bills late. But we are still going to be short. Right now our only other option is this campaign or trying to take some money from our retirment fund and pay some pretty hefty fees that go along with it. Any help would be greatly apprieciated, no matter how small, after all every little bit helps. Eli means the world to us and is a very healthy boy other than this tumor, we would love to be able to get him the treatment he needs to become and old man, not just a middle aged one.
