Late last week I noticed two lumps behind Sadie's jaw. I took her into the vet for an emergency appointment and after some bloodwork and aspirates of her lymph nodes I got the heartwrenching news yesterday that Sadie has lymphoma.
Our wonderful vet Dr. Thorton prescribed steroids for her and while it will hopefully help some, she has also recommended chemo consultation with an oncologist. That's the tricky part. A full round of chemo will cost around $5000 and we don't have anything even remotely close to that kind of money. On top of that, time is definitely of the essence.
Sadie just turned 7 this past March and while we've had the time of our lives together, I can't help but feel it's only half over. I need to at least try to do everything I can to keep us together for another 7 years. Sadie is still in high spirits, her bloodwork is normal, and our vet said there's a high chance she would respond favorably to treatment. So I humbly ask for anything you can give to Sadie's fund, it's very, very much, one billion times appreciated.
