Kona's chemo treatments

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Kim Taylor and I am fundraising to help Tammy and Wayne pay for Kona's chemo. Below is a brief explanation from Kona on her health.

My name is Kona

Let me begin. I was purchased by these people that only had me for 5 months and returned me to the breeder saying I was stupid and destructive, and that I had a screw loose. Nice people Right???!!!

Well at that time, my mommy and daddy had just lost their boy Kodiak to cancer. They were very sad. I was being fostered by their friend. I think mommy fell in love with me at first sight. After long talks, the breeder decided I could come and have them as my forever mommy and daddy. That was a happy day for all of us.

I have been with the best family since I was seven months old, I just turned 7 years old in December 2022. In January, we were hit with terrible news. I was diagnosed with Lymphoma. My mommy got right to work on getting me in to see many doctors. We go to see this wonderful lady that calls herself an Oncologist. The doctor gave us some options. One was a steroid only and I could have 2 weeks to 2 months. Another option was to try chemotherapy. Of course, mommy and daddy wanted to do chemo. I am putting up a good fight! I have very few side effects. I feel good. I play with my brother and sister. I also enjoy all the love from my mommy and daddy.

I know it has been hard on them. Mommy did have insurance on me, but that didn't take long to max out. The plan is I still need 4-5 more chemo treatments at $2,400 each. Mommy and daddy are working longer hours and doing everything they can to make sure I get what I need. I thought I could also help and ask if anyone would be willing to donate towards my chemo. We would all be so very grateful.

I am just not ready to leave the best mommy and daddy yet, nor am I ready to go to the place they call Rainbow Bridge.

Please keep me in your prayers because I believe in the power of prayer.

God Bless and slobbery kisses to you.

Love, Kona
