Jackwell Brightsparks operation

My beautiful horse has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma.  A cancer that is present in his 3rd eyelid ... in both eyes. 
The procedure although not a cure is to remove both 3rd eyelids under general anesthetic.. this is to try and slow the cancer from spreading. Expanding his life and quality of life in the near future. 

With all operations we have risks...
I could make the cancer angry.. causing it to spread more rapidly .. although no saying if if would of done this regardless.. 

Ultimately it may not change the outcome at all. 

1% chance he may not wake up. 

Nothing is guaranteed. 
I could do this operation and we may get all the cancerous cells. 
There is no way of being 100% sure. 
No way of knowing if it will come back.. or not.... 

After many tears and sleepness nights.. I'm prepared to take a gamble based purely on hope. 
Knowing that if I do this.. I've done all I can... given him the best chance I possibly can.. 

This horse is my absolute everything. 
My horse of a life time! He is 13 years old and I've had him for 11 years. He has Looked after me and I trust him with my life! 
I'm hoping that he can rely on me to do the same for him. 
And if nothing else improve the quality of his life for how ever long I'm aloud to love him for! 

I've decided if I'm going to do this and put both him and me through this.. I'm going to use the best person I can. I've chosen an eye specialist that works purely in this field. Has an amazing reputation and works closely with my personal vet. 
He works within a millimetre precision getting every cell he can see.. 

I feel sick with worry as in himself right now he is a happy horse. But for how long for if I don't do this.. I'm hoping acting now.. may add to a more positive outcome.. 

I'm going to be a first time mum in under 3 months... I don't have the funds to do this myself.. and only 2 months before I go on maternity leave.
I've always supported myself and never asked for help. 

Feeling so embarrassed even asking for help with this and I wouldn't if I wasn't desperate. Jackwell is my absolute world.
