Life Saving Splenectomy for Lexi

Lexi was taken to ER vet at Metropolitan Vet Hospital (PA) for labored breathing and generally being uncomfortable on Jan 31st. They found a 5-6cm mass on her spleen. It is nearly the same size as her stomach. Our options are euthanize, have it removed, or wait and see (ticking time bomb if she bleeds internally). I would like to see her have the surgery if we can raise the funds over the weekend by Feb 4th so I can schedule it for next week. She needs a chance to survive. Any amount will help. We have such a great community of pug families and we need your help to give Lexi a chance to live. 
Her surgery (most likely) will be performed at Ludwigs Corner Veterinary Hospital as outpatient unless I get enough funds to support the specialized vet hospital at Metropolitan Vet Associates in Audubon, Pa (this estimate was $4,000-$6,000). If you are more comfortable using another donation method like PayPal please find me on FB and message me. I'll be happy to answer any questions or respond via email.

I really hope we can get the funding to help save her! If you've gotten this far, thank you for reading our story and please hug your pugs (or other babies) tight tonight.
Brigette and Nick (Lexi's parents)
