Help Cumbia! fuck cancer

As many of you know, Cumbia is my first born. Up until now she has been very healthy and has lived a happy 7.5 years.

This past weekend, part of my world turned upside down.
On Friday she started breathing very heavily and weird.
On Saturday she was lethargic, wouldn’t eat or move all day. On Sunday, i woke up to vomit everywhere and she couldn’t move. I had to call an ambulance to take her to the hospital. She was , pale and almost dead when i took her in.

They told me very bluntly that no matter what she was going to die. She was very weak. She had loads of blood all around her chest cavity and that she needed a blood transfusion. Then they did an ultrasound and realized the blood around her lungs was a ruptured artery. They found a huge mass and said perhaps it got so big and ruptured the artery.

Receiving this news, wasn’t easy for me.

Today she appears a bit better with a bit more energy. Next step is CT scan of the chest And then we can tell what will happen. They now need to aspirate as much fluids (blood) from her lung cavities before the CT. And then once we get the results we’ll know what it is, where it is and if it can be removed.

It’s only been one day and I have already spent over $1000.
It’s very hard for me as a single parent of two kids and a dog to cover the surgery needed to save Cumbia.

I am asking everyone for help.
Anything is appreciated.
