Help Billy Beat Cancer

$13,532 of $13,500 goal

Raised by 408 people in 2 months

Hi Beautiful People,

Many of you that are seeing this have most likely met our dog in your photoshoot sessions with us, in passing, or on social media. Billy has been my dog since I adopted him in Iowa, and is a huge part of Chad and my family.  He is literally our baby Buddha of a dog.  
Those of you who have met Billy can attest that he is one special being, and he even feels like his soul is that of a wise-old sage.
He has the kindest, oldest spirit.   

Today we took Billy to the vet for the third time this week.  
After $3,000 in blood tests, vet visits, medicine, ultrasounds and x-rays, we found out that Billy has a severe cancerous tumor that is taking up a majority of his liver. His liver enzymes have maxed out the charts - literally at 300x the amount a normal dog is supposed to have (130 vs. Billy's 3,391, and rising).  Furthermore, because his liver is failing, Billy's immune system is going quickly, and he is also anemic now.  Although he still has an appetite, he's having sharp pains and trouble eating since the tumor is pressing against his small intestines and his pancreas. 

So, we need to act as fast as possible to get him his surgery.  
The cost of the CAT scans, the anesthesia, overnight stays at the ICU, and the complicated surgery itself was estimated at a whopping $10,844.31 up front.  That's not including if anything else goes wrong or if he needs to stay another night or two.  

We're asking you, our friends to share this page to people you think would possibly want to contribute, even if you yourself can't.  
Even $1 from each instagram follower could pay for the surgery.  Literally, no donation is too small.
As two healers, we choose love and light above all, and we are of the belief that energy is cyclical.  Know that if you help our little guy, that the universe has ways of repaying the favor in multitudes.  
We thank you in advance for even just looking at our page.  

Love and Light,
Steven and Chad (and Billy's soul and liver)

EVERYONE! We did it! And he’s coming home already! They didn’t know if it would be possible, but they removed the tumor the size of a grapefruit (maybe larger) and sent it out for lab testing. Supposedly the cancer was isolated to just his tumor, so we are most likely in the clear! Thank you for all your help, because of you all we got to save his life and give him another shot. We love you all. Thanks for giving us the biggest gift we could receive.

Love and Light,
Chad, Steven and Billy

Hi Everyone! We just wanted to let you know thanks to all of you, we were able to get Billy in for surgery today. We just dropped him off and are awaiting the call on what our options are after the cat scan. Love you all and thanks for all your kindness and love for us and our fur baby.

Wow guys!
We can’t believe we’ve raised just over half of Billy’s surgery in ONE DAY!!!
We are so incredibly humbled by the outpouring of love and support for our little boy.
Slowly but surely we will try our best to get back to each and every one of you personally to thank you, but as you might imagine the amount of love has been overwhelming (yet incredibly uplifting), and we’ve been trying to spend as much of the time we have possible with Billy.
If you can, keep sharing the link, as this seems to be working and we’d like to gain as much traction as possible.
Billy seems to be in good spirits right now, and his energy has gotten better with all the liver meds and support. It seems he’ll probably be healthy enough to undergo surgery this coming week, and with this momentum you’ve created we just may be able to fund the whole procedure.
Our gratitude is infinite, as is the Universe’s love for you.
