Help Munin Fight Cancer

Munin is our 12 year old black kitty, who we love dearly. We need your help saving his life. 

He's been with us since he was 8 weeks old, and a few weeks ago he was diagnosed with Leukemia and Lymphoma (did you know they are often concurrent? We had no idea!).  One of our other cats (we have 4!) has congenital heart disease, which we've been managing for a year and a half. That comes with a $200/month prescription, plus ultrasounds and bloodwork 2-3 times a year.  Unfortunately we are also facing a situation with a close family member with advanced cancer, so our savings have gone towards travel costs associated with helping our family. With my husband’s recent job loss, we have to turn to you for help. 

We found out Munin was sick when we took him in for emergency sutures after he badly cut his foot, which has already set us back almost $900.

We are now pursuing tests and treatment for his Leukemia and Lymphoma. We are in the process of having ultrasounds and flow cytometry tests performed, which is going to cost around $1,200 upfront. 

Munin will need bloodwork regularly every 4 weeks for the foreseeable future, and then we will be looking at additional costs for chemotherapy and symptom management. The overall cost of his treatment will be in the several thousands, and we would really appreciate any and all help.

If the amount we raise exceeds Munin's medical costs, we will donate any overages to the MSPCA.
