During a recent foreign-body-removal surgery, a cancerous tumor was found near Noah's anal glands. The estimate from my vet to remove this mass (and to do a procedure for a few swollen lymph nodes that were also found) is $2,500-$3,000.
As I've already spent over $5,000 on Noah's most recent surgery (which included ER visits, overnight stays at the hospital, follow-up visits with the vet, X-rays, a month's worth of medication and special food, etc.), I'm now turning to family, friends, and fellow dog lovers with a special, heartfelt request: will you consider donating to Noah's campaign so that I can afford to give him this life-saving tumor removal surgery?
Without the surgery, Noah's life expectancy is only 9 months. If he gets the surgery, however, and pursues chemotherapy, the vets are confident that we can add several more years to his life.
I adopted Noah over 10 years ago when he was just a little puppy at the local animal shelter, who'd been taken in from a junkyard. Over the years, our bond has grown so much. And we've also been through so much: long-distance moves, breakups, family deaths, hurricanes - you name it! He's always been by my side. I can't even imagine life without him. He's not just a dog to me. He's a kindred spirit, a friend, and a source of comfort.
Everyone who meets Noah falls in love with him, too. The vets and technicians call him sweet, saying he's so easy to work with. He may be an older dog, but you wouldn't know it by watching him. He's full of life, playful, and has the spunk of a puppy. He still barks at birds, chases lizards, and runs laps around the yard when he spots a squirrel.
That's how I know he can beat this if given a fighting chance. He's a strong dog. He has a strong will to live because he loves life. Whether it's basking in the sunlight, wrestling with his best friend Luna (my other dog), or laying close enough to me to get a belly rub, Noah relishes the simple delights in this beautiful journey called life. And it would mean the world to me to keep him here as long as possible.
Every donation would make a difference in this campaign, and I'd be so humbled and grateful for whatever love and support you're able to give. Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart. <3
