A few weeks ago, my sister Kelly noticed that her yellow labradors breath smelled unusually bad, so she made an appointment with her vet (as any rational dog mom would do). What was first thought to be a rotten tooth that needed removal, turned out to be an exceedingly fast growing cancer inside his jaw bone. It created a growth on his mandible so large and painful, that vets have said he is in searing, unimaginable pain at all times. After a recent visit to Cornell, a second growth was discovered on his thyroid. All of this requires immediate removal, or Danger will face a future not fair for any innocent, loving creature. The excision surgeries for both growths, paired with required chemotheraphy treatments, hospital stays, travel expenses, medication bills, and more, has put my already financially stressed sister at the end of her rope. All of the donations would be going towards these expenses.
Danger boy is more than a pet to Kelly, he's her baby, best friend, therapist, running partner, the one that is home with her late at night when everyone leaves, the one that is there to give her hugs, kisses, and cuddles when things get lonely. The past two years have essentially been hell for my sister, her life drastically changed in too short an amount of time for any sane person to be able to handle. She lost stability, except for sweet Danger. Sweet Danger whose only desire in his little puppy life is to give kisses, wag his tail, and wait for mama to come home.
Please, help us to take care of a sweet soul that only wishes to stay around and give all the love his heart can. We can't bear to see him in pain, and I can't handle seeing my sister take on yet another sucker punch from the Universe. We know everyone has their own struggles, their own pains they are dealing with in life, but we humbly ask for help, in any way you can. My sister needs her best friend, more than anything . Please donate, share the word, and pray.
