Help Apollo Beat Lymphoma

Apollo has very recently been diagnosed with lymphoma (or lymphosarcoma ). The chemo process, not counting the costs we've already paid for testing, will cost more than we can handle. We believe, however, that this pup deserves more time being a happy, healthy, goofy guy.

The Pup
Apollo, a five year old lovable mutt and the bright star in our lives, first came into the picture when a friend saw him at Puppypalooza four years ago. While there were several crates with tiny puppies, Apollo was already around a year old. He also had a broken hip at the time. Combined, this meant that his foster mom at the time was having trouble finding his forever home. Matt and Sam, however, fell in love with him immediately and took him in. Apollo is a big goof -- he loves doing high fives, he only barks when there are balloons present, and he wants everyone he meets to be his best friend.

The Treatment
While the treatment itself will cost approximately $7k over the course of six months of chemo, the follow up appointments to check blood levels will also cost us. This estimation of need is only part of what we will incur overall, but it's a very generous start. The chemo that he will be having is called "CHOP", and is a combination of different chemicals. This combo ensures that there is less likelyhood of resistance and an increased effectiveness. Each of the chemicals within the combination costs several hundreds of dollars, and this treatment cycle will be repeated four times over six months. For more information on CHOP, otherwise known as the Madison or Wisconsin Protocol, you can go here.
