Help w/ Lola's Vet & Hospital Bills

As some of you know both my Mom, Kathleen, and our dog, Lola, are in the hospital. I also lost my fiancé one month ago. The past month has been stressful & trying on everyone. With my Mom in one hospital and Lola in another- the bills are adding up quickly.

Lola is in Hope veterinary hospital and has been diagnosed with an auto immune disease - hemolytic anemia. She has required four blood transfusions so far and is still unable to eat. The vet thinks with enough blood transfusions, fluids & time (we need to give the steroids and anti rejection drugs time to do their job) she may be okay. Even if we are able to get Lola through this initial phase she will require steroids and other costly medications for six - eight months.

My Mom is currently hospitalized at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She had a bump in the road on her transplant journey, but is also having surgery Friday. She will be okay but parking and other expenses at the hospital add up.

It is very difficult for me to swallow my pride and ask for help, but right now I need it. The estimate for Hope through today was $5,000 and each day Lola is hospitalized that number will increase. The vet said some dogs in her condition have to stay two weeks or more. If you have a few dollars to give or anything it would be greatly appreciated - any little bit would help to take away some of the stress and financial burden of this current situation. Thank you so much.
