Athena's surgery vet bills

My babygirl needs to see the vet and she will need surgery. Everyone knows athena's my world, my life, she is my everything, she is my kid. Athena has several tumors on her belly, chest, and back side. Everyone knows vet bills add up fast and funds are not always available. The tumor that needs to be removed asap is on her backside between her butt and her hoo ha (girl part). It is really starting to bother her; it's getting harder for her to sit and it's only going to get bigger if it doesn't get taken care of soon. She also needs to get caught up on a couple shots. I do want to have her other tumors biopsied so we can make a game plan to make her comfortable and hopefully prolong her life. Athena's dr is dr Faust from VCA Highlands, he is amazing and really took care of us in the past.  I trust him which is not easy and my friend Donna also works there so I always know my babies will be cared for. I can't imagine my life without her, when I think about the possibilities it crushes me. My babygirl is 11 1/2, she has a beautiful pitbull smile that can melt any heart. she has had a cancerous tumor on her neck that was removed in 2009. The reason I had to wait to bring her in is I'm on disability so pay checks are not like the ones I was getting when I was working. I wanted to make it to my birthday that way I can use the money from my birthday to at least get the ball moving. Any help is incredibly generous and we are truly grateful. I am truly grateful and I love you all. Please pray for a positive outcome and for my babygirl.
