Jase is my best friend's best friend. Jase joined Jim and Jill's family just a couple years ago. Jim waited years for Jase and when he and his wife Jill found him it was love at first sight.
Jase is a Chesapeake Retriever and is almost 2 years old. I've watched Jase grow from a rambunctious young pup to Jim's best friend and hunting buddy. Tonight (12/13/14) Jim and Jill received devastating news. Jase's preliminary diagnosis is ventricular tachycardia..or V-Tach... Basically meaning the top and bottom of his heart are not beating the same. After further testing a chest X-Ray showed a lesion or mass on his lung, not sure yet what it is, but it is triggering the V-Tach.
Jase needs surgery to get better. His heart rate is under control for now, but he won't be 100% until he can go under the knife.
Surgery is estimated to cost between $5000 - $6000. I set the goal at $8000 to cover the fees of this campaign and have a little left over to help with after care costs. If I could pay for his surgery I would, but I can't do it alone. If a large enough group of us can do just a little, we can all make a huge difference. Help me help my friend please. Anything and everything is appreciated. As soon as I can get in touch with Gofundme I will have the funding set up so that Jim and Jill can withdraw directly and my involvement (other than providing updates) will be unnecessary.
