Help Duke fight his battle of Spindle Cell Sarcoma

My name is Kayla Pennino, proud mom of Duke. Duke is a collie lab mix. About two months ago I took Duke to the vet for a small quarter size red bump in his mouth and they had no clue what it could have been and as of two weeks ago I took him back because it was growing quickly and had grown tremendously since the first visit. They wanted to perform a biopsy to see what it could be. After a week, I received the results that he has been diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma. He is awaiting a appointment to receive a ct scan and removal of the mass in his mouth. With the size of the growth, it is starting to affect his breathing and they stated it will eventually become difficult for him to breath at all. Therefor, the doctors suggest that we act fast due to the amount of growth we are experiencing in such little time.  

As you may know these types of treatments can be very expensive. So, I created a gofundme to help raise money for Duke as we fight to beat this cancer and get a full removal. 

Duke as my best friend, my shotgun rider in coffee runs, and so much more so it is extremely important for me to do everything needed to help him from having to be put down. He is very sweet and loves everyone he meets.  

So if you could help donate in anyway or even share with others would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help in saving the life of Duke.
