Bean's Emergency Surgery Fund

Dear Friends, Family, & Fans of our beloved Bean,

Bean has been suffering for the past 3 weeks with an unexplainable upset stomach. We've taken him to the vet multiple times, put him on antibiotics, changed his diet to plain chicken & rice, among other attempts to get him feeling better. Nothing has helped heal this mysterious illness. Yesterday we discovered a medium sized lump on the side of his belly by his ribs. We were terribly frightened with the thought that this could be the big C word. Today we took him to Dove Lewis, the animal hospital here in Portland to get an ultrasound. Turns out it is not the big C but it is very serious. Bean has ingested some sort of foreign object that is pressing against the walls of his stomach & is causing him to be very sick. He's been fighting with all his might the past few weeks. Now his life is in the hands of the surgeons at Dove Lewis. He won't survive without having this foreign object removed & having them flush out the bacterial infection he has going on inside. This surgery is estimated to cost thousands of dollars. We are turning to the ones that love Bean like we do & know how much of an integral part of our lives he is. Anything helps!

With love & our deepest gratitude,

Claire, Chris, Van & Bean
