Help Jicama and I pay for her surgery

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Denise and my dog recently underwent patella and TPLO surgery.

Jicama has always been a joy and lights up any room with her personality. In February, she suffered a terrible injury that left her unable to walk and my heart was completely destroyed. I followed our vets advice to a T but then there was a moment she collapsed and hit her head, and went through several ER visits that nearly took her out. In that moment I knew enough was enough and we went forward with her leg surgery despite the debt I would incur.

Our insurance claim was denied as it was deemed as a preexisting condition. I am hoping to help raise funds for her surgery and full recovery as we are also being priced out of our apartment. I am scared that if her other leg goes, I will not be able to care for her without complete financial collapse on my end. I will go through every depth I need to and for that reason I would deeply appreciate any support ❤️.
