Bring my Icies to Hawaii!

In February,  I was working as a chef when I passed out in the middle of lunch service in Branson, Missouri. They discovered a large pineal region tumor in my brain.

I was told by many neurosurgeons that it was inoperable and that would have only a few years to live. My family sent me to Hawaii to live out my last years, but instead, I found a surgeon (Dr. Glazier) in Honolulu who successfully removed the tumor. 

I get to live!

Now I want to get my Icelandic Sheepdogs here to live with me as I start the next chapter of my life. They are ready to travel as ok 10/17, having completed the rabies quarantine and testing. 

It's expensive and I can't yet work or drive. I'm thankful for any help!
