Gracie's cancer treatments

Gracie is our 12 years old pug and she has recently been diagnosed with dermal melanoma. Gracie joined our family when she was 10 months old......I never thought I would ever own a pug....afterall they were weird little dogs LOL--I was going to take her and help find a home. That new home ended up being mine and I have never regretted the decision to keep her. We recently took her to an oncologist for a consult after having a growth removed. We had already spent well over $1500.....I do have carecredit. The treatment that will provide her best survival rate will cost approx. $4000 starting off.... This is a type of vaccine that will help her to produce what is needed for her body to fight off the cancer itself and she is a good candidate for it. If we just do "monitoring"....we will only know when it "returns" and it has metastasized spreading to her lungs and lymph nodes.  I am NOT one to ask for financial help.....I try to be fully self supporting, but after many many prayers, I am willing to humble my self and ask for my baby. I don't have two  (2) legged children.....my dogs are my kids! I cannot *not* do something to help my Gracie. I am also reaching out to organizations that provide assistance, so if there any funds left over they will be given to an animal nonprofit so they can help other fur babies. Thanking all in advance....any bit helps! If you can't donate, please share. My name is Lisa Schafer and my girl is Gracie Schafer. If you are willing to contribute, donations can also be made directly to her vet. Her oncologist is: Dogwood The Oncology Service 5918 W. Broad St Richmond VA 23230 [phone redacted]
