Help fund Chirons Emergency Surgery

From Patty Norton: My daughters 11 year old horse is in desperate need for strong prayers, we finally got the vet out here. He is in tons of pain, we have meds to help him through the night.
But he needs surgery and we do not have the funds. If anyone can help us out we would appreciate it greatly! We do not want to lose him because of money. I would normally never ask but given our situation, I don't know what else to do! If you can please share/send strong prayers for our big boy. Any and all donations will help!
Sincerely the Norton family.

From a good friend "Sage": Prayers are appreciated. So is a donation. If you have ever experienced the love a girl has for her horse or have ever experienced the love of/for an animal yourself, please put your love into action. If everyone gave $5, or even $1, The price of a cup of coffee from each person who sees this could change the outcome for this beautiful/beloved animal, not only would this surgery be possible, but it would show that no matter how bleak things may seem, the goodness of humanity still prevails. We all go through bouts of financial hardship, let's help each other through the tough times... Karma can be a beautiful thing! Please don't feel like your donation won't count. The amount doesn't matter. The fact that you took action, and the energy behind your actions speak volumes. Chiron is up and down. He is a strong war horse, a Thoroughbred off the track. Please give from your heart.

From Natalie: I know a lot of people are skeptical about these being fake to get $ but THIS is VERY REAL... I have had him, it will be two years in October and this was a very unexpected event and financially my family and I are strapped right now as my father was out of work for a year due to 3 hernias and couldn't work and fell behind on everything and now I've spent my savings and been giving what I have left after I pay my bills to help keep my family Afloat! We all appreciate every donation/prayer/positive energy sent our way... He's loved by the entire family not just myself....including my other horse "Sunny" a 34 yr old (we've been together 23yrs)suffering cushings who lost her partner/buddy samson of 22 years in 2014 and was so stressed I was lucky I was given Chiron shortly before that and could bring him home to her because that saved her... It was the only thing that calmed her from the loss of her friend & since her and Chiron have been inseperable! So you can see how my losing him makes me fear that I would also lose her due to stress from losing him also and being alone.  If you've ever had an animal companion that long you know the deep bond that's created and if you know me or simply follow me... You know HOW MUCH my babies mean to me! They are my My everything❤️ Each donation brings a tear to my eyes as well as leaps of joy There ARE beautiful people in the world still! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE TO ALL WHO HELP IN ANY WAY! Sincerely Natalie
