Help Save Sarah's Baby Pebbles LIFE

Hi my name is Christin,
5 months ago I bought my daughter Sarah a kitten to help her cope with her anxiety. Pebbles has become her child and her best friend. Pebbles is always there for Sarah when she needs her and has become family to us all but most especially Sarah. About 2 weeks ago we noticed Pebbles was getting bloated but chalked it up to her eating so much. Tonight I came home and was so worried about how bloated she was we decided to take her to a emergency clinic as the other vets warned us her condition could be life threatening and they couldn't get her in for a couple weeks. They immediately took pebbles back and did a ultra sound and extracted some fluid from her abdomen. They brought her back to us and told us she was so sweet and did great. Then the Dr. came in. He explained to us that pebbles had wet form of FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) and that the only cure was off market and the best he could do to help me was direct me to a Facebook group called FIP Warriors and that they had successfully treated and cured this disease with medicine that was not available to vetinarians and without it we would need to prepare to euthanize Pebbles. Sarah, Noah, and I were in tears and couldn't believe what we were hearing. When I got home I immediately went to find that group and filled out questions so that I could join amd post my story. Within minutes someone helped me and told me all about the treatment and where and who I could pick up the medicine from, how to administer it, and that it had a 90% success rate especially when caught early like as Pebbles case is. I was filled with hope untill she told me that the entire treatment would cost between $1,500 and $1,600 for the medicine. That did not include medicine to calm her during injection times, Dr's. apoinments for bloodwork, and all supplies needed. I do not have that kind of money and it kills me to know I have a chance to save the life of my daughters best friend but can't afford the treatment. I am desperately asking for anyone's help please. Pebbles life is so precious to us and you would be saving my daughter from unnecessary heartache. I hate to ask for help but I will if I need to and right now I know I have to. Please if you would be willing to help we would be forever grateful. I'm praying and believing that we can save Pebbles life. Thank you so much for any and all support. God Bless
