Please Help Save Miss Callie

On February 10th we noticed something wasn't right with our little Callie, she would just lay around with no interest in eating, playing, or even sleeping with her tiny mommy. I rushed her to the animal urgent care and that's when they found it..... A mass in her abdomen. Not knowing what it was they ran so many tests, her white cells were through the roof and many other levels elevated as well, they feared the worst (cancer) and needed to perform full exploratory surgery to biopsy and make sure there was nothing else. How could this happen?! She had just turned 1! I immediately reached for my phone and took out a $2,000 loan to cover the cost of the surgery. I will never forget the heartbreaking look on my daughters face as they explained to us Callie would not be able to go home for a few days and would need to stay there to heal and be monitored post-op. Everyday that went by while we waited for those results, all I could think about was ‘Please don’t let it be cancer, please don’t take my babies baby away’. From the moment my daughter saw her sitting in her little cage at the Humane Society they were bonded, she has slept with her every single night, followed her around everywhere she goes, knows exactly when she is coming home and will be there waiting at the door, if that wasn’t enough she has found a way to sneak into Aiden’s heart too. She has been known to curl up in a ball on his lap even when Autism tells him he doesn’t want anything to do with that.

Then I got THE call…. All I could focus on was the fact the Dr said she was in the clear from cancer that I didn’t even take in the fact she said those three little letters that would shatter our hearts… FIP. Assuming Miss Callie had a death sentence I fell into a depression thinking about how heartbroken the kids would be. There’s nothing worse than seeing your babies heartbroken and thinking there’s nothing at all that you can do. A few day’s later I received a call from the Dr that had performed Callie’s biopsy surgery to check in on her, he gave me some more insight on FIP and then mentioned black market and “GS”. Why would he even mention something about a black market to me? Naturally I took to google to try and figure out what he was talking about. After doing countless hours of research I knew this was my chance to save her, but of course it comes with a price…. $125 a vile to be exact. But I didn’t hesitate or even think twice, I emptied savings, skipped a few (or most) of my bills, put off finishing school, and started looking for a second job. Thankfully I had enough to purchase almost a months’ worth. Miss Callie will have to receive injections of GS for the next 84 days with another $2,000 ahead of me, but after seeing the success rates, I couldn’t say no. Those of you who know me, know I am not the type to ask for money, but as a mom I would do anything to keep my kids happy and give our little Callie a chance to beat this, especially with Callie's "Tiny Mommy" two weeks from her 5th Birthday. Any shares & donations are so greatly appreciated ❤️❤️45970050_1583454478822903_r.jpeg45970050_1583454439409302_r.jpeg
