Help Capone beat Cancer

On 10/10/2017 I found out that my boyfriend's dog was being taken to the vet for emergency surgery due a tumor that ruptured on his back and a tumor on his chest. On 10/17 I met my boyfriend (Dan)  to pick his dog up after surgery & was told that his dog Capone has a High Grade 3 Mast Cell Tumor.  The news is devastating to Dan & I.

This is not just Dan's dog this is his first dog and best friend. Since he was young Dan always wanted a Doberman Pinscher & in 2007 he was finally able to get one!   Capone is always happy and loves everyone he meets & is always making friends where ever he goes. This Dog LOVES Dan and Dan LOVES him. Every night before bed Capone walks over the edge of the bed and puts his head down for his goodnight kiss and neck rub (his favorite).

The doctor advised Dan that the grade of tumor meant that the dog would most certainly need to see an oncologist due to the severity. Dan took Capone to Hope Veterinary Specialists to review his options.  The visit did not go well.. Capone will first need to have an abdominal ultrasound to see how much the cancer has spread. The Mast Cell cancer has extremely narrow margins and additonal surgeries will be necessary. The surgeries will not fix the problem &!survival with surgery alone is only 4 months. Capone will need to under go a series of chemotherapy treatments and then will need a series of signal blockers called palladia. With all this treatment and with everything going as planned Capone's could live for up to 3 years living healthy and happy!  Please help Dan & I to raise these funds to save this sweet dog's life.

Today, Capone had his Staples removed from his chest and back. On 10/25 Capone starts his process at Hope.
