Java needs lung surgery. Please help!

Hi,


My name is Java, and I live in the North End of Boston.  I recently was diagnosed with a punctured lung, the doctors still aren't sure how it happened.  I am still in the hospital, and will require surgery to repair the hole in my lung.  I am Shih Tzu and am only 6 1/2 years old, so I can still live a long life if I can get my lung fixed up. (many of us live til 13 years of age)  

My mom just finished nursing school and has many of her own bills to take care of.  She is a wonderful person, and often raises money for other charities by bike riding (she did the Climate ride last year, and has another ride coming up).  My surgery is going to cost another $8000 on top of that!  It is a bit much to handle right now, and I thought I could help my mom out by raising a little money to help her for a change. 

I was hoping you could help out with as little or as much as you can.

Thank you for reading...
