Help Sadie fight cancer

Today I received the devastating news that my sweet dog Sadie, my best friend in the entire world, has a large, aggressive tumor around her urethra, preventing her from being able to urinate. She has been my everything for the past nine years, and I want to do whatever I can to prolong her time with me, and her comfort. Our first step in keeping her alive is surgery to give her another way to expel urine, which we hope to do today or tomorrow. We will then be sending a biopsy to an oncologist, in the hopes that chemo will be an option to give her a few more months with me.

Her urinary diversion is estimated to cost $5,000-$7,000, which is all I'm focused on at this point.

Anyone who knows Sadie knows that she's truly an exceptional, deeply empathetic dog with the biggest heart. If you can help in any way, anything you donate toward her medical procedure is so deeply appreciated, and the extra months it will give me with her means more than I can ever see.

Thank you all for loving her as much as I do, and being a part of her life.
