Milkyboi's surgery

Soon after I adopted Milkyboi 2 years ago, the vet informed me Milky had most likely suffered an immense physical trauma during his first few months as a kitten which had resulted in a hernia in his diaphragm so large the majority of his digestive system had relocated to his chest cavity. Consequently, his intestines press his lungs against his ribcage and physically displaces his heart to the right (usually cat's hearts are centred). 

With his digestive system next to his heart and lungs, any complications such as inflammation, a small twist in the intestine or scar tissue forming around the hernia could prove fatal.

I was informed the only solution would be a complex and high risk surgery that would cost 5,000-7,000$. At the time, I was a full time student surviving off of student loans struggling to afford the plethora of other conditions Milky had. Unable to afford the surgery, I took a choice of chance that maybe Milky would never face any complications. This was true for the last two years up until last Thursday Oct 8th when things took a turn for the worse.

Milky now needs surgery as soon as possible with his condition deteriorating by the day. The quote with the surgery and post op hospitalization comes to a staggering 7000$. With the emergency visits, tests and medication, I have already financially exhausted my resources to a point where I can only ask others for assistance. If you can donate, any amount would be greatly appreciated <3 or if you can't that's also alright <3 we're literally on the precipice of uncertainty everyday and I know it's been rough for some of you out there.

The world is on fire but I always imagined it would be me and milky watching the world burn together until the end...


Thank you and much love,

xx Van & Milkyboi
