Help Laurelai beat cancer

Well... It's finally happened--I need help.

I've had Laurelai since she was six weeks old--rescued from a backyard breeder.  I've cared for her through mange,  a spinal cord surgery, two ACL repairs (those three surgeries were all in one year), a tooth extraction, cyst removal and now: a mast cell tumor.

I have pet insurance, I've fed her top quality food her entire life, given antioxidant supplements and basically taken every precaution I could have to preserve her health. 

Unfortunately, it hasn't been enough.  I can't do this on my own anymore.  I'm still paying off the huge expenses from the surgeries listed above, even with pet insurance. 

I have never asked for help, but now I must.  This is the breaking point--I have no more money for this dog's constant issues.  I've spent it just getting the mass diagnosed and removed, but the biopsy returned a grade II, which is moderate metastatic potential.  Mast cell tumors are very aggressive and she needs radiation. Treatments are every day for 18 days with weekends off.

Laurelai is only 8; pit bulls can live up to 16 years.  She is full of energy and life, she has done so much to change breed perceptions, and she is such a good girl.  I want to do whatever I can to ensure her next 8 years are happy and active, and hopefully allow her to keep all four legs.

Any help we can get would be greatly appreciated.
