Atlas needs medical attention!!

Hello and thank you for allowing me to ask for help! I am coming to in need for my dog Atlas. 2 days ago, I took Atlas to the vet over a swelled ankle believing he just had a wound and needed and was told the worst news of his life!! Instead of him just having just a hurt ankle, he has a tumor and its either one of two things.. bone cancer or an infectious tumor. he is set for a biopsy and I am in struggles as to how I am going to afford any of this and its hurts knowing my only 4 year old best friend will die because I don't have the money to cover it. Just a little background on me, I just got through chemo and have stage 3 cervical cancer. I have not yet been cleared but I have been billed and the cost of all the treatment for radiation and chemotherapy has completely wiped me out and left me broke. I am a caregiver, I continue to work everyday for my clients and did so through my treatment also. Now, to be told Atlas is hurting and ongoing treatment is needed, I am over hurt and dramatic and feel like I can not get over it! I cannot take anymore. I have never asked help. Never. I am a hardworking single dog mom who never gives up. I got the idea to finally ask because he means everything to me. Everything. We are currently using and will continue with Armistead Avenue Veterinary hospital in Hampton VA. The phone number for the vet is I am also in the process of making a gofundme but am blessed to have any help even if it was directly paid to the vet, I love my dog and am begging for any kind of help so my dog won't have to die because I am poor right now. atlas is up date on all shots and care, the vet also said I caught this in the very beginning where it still treatable and was very lucky for that. No matter what, he needs surgery and meds. 7577238571. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I feel defeated.
