Fighting for Marley

Hi Everyone,

So I was/am really hesitant to share and was really trying to hold off in having to do this but I can't any longer. Some of you know what's been going on and what my heart has been going through and for those who don't let me briefly explain. Marley... my sweet baby, my best friend, my heart was diagnosed with two types of cancer back in October. One is a hemangiosarcoma (skin cancer) and the other is a mass cell tumor in two locations. From what I've been told it is stage 2 and was caught early so I am praying and have faith she will get through this.

Again, I was really hesitant to publicly share this information because I'm not one to disclose anything so personal like this but I have to admit, I need help. Medical bills have been piling up with the vet exams, oncology exams, ultrasound, testing, lab fees, first surgery, second surgery (last I hope), medication, the continuous amount of care and check ups she will need going forward is and has been extremely overwhelming. I can't even begin to describe how much I love Marley and how much she means to me, she's been there for me through so much and finding this out just broke my heart. I would never want my girl to suffer so I've gone over all of the options countless times and have really looked deep to see what the best thing to do is and honestly this is it, I can't not do anything. If I don't do anything she suffers and one thing I know for sure is that you fight for your family and you fight for the one's you love so I'm not turning my back on her, not now and not ever.

I know these times are very challenging for us all and my heart along with prayers are with those who are all going through something difficult right now, but I sincerely ask for your help. I don't expect much at all, and I appreciate you even taking the time to read this if you've made it down to this point but I ask you all to keep Marley in your positive thoughts and prayers, I pray God gives her the strength to fight and overcome this.

Lastly, I humbly ask for your help big or small anything you can possibly contribute to save my baby girl's life, I would forever be grateful to you. Receiving help will mean the world to us and would be the greatest blessing, all donations would help pay for her treatments and after care (can provide medical documents for proof if needed). Thank you for reading and I'm sending you all my love, take care of yourselves everyone.
