NALA's Tumor Removal Fund

I've never asked for help from my community so this is super hard but here goes...

NALA HAS A MAST CELL TUMOR THAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED ASAP...

Nala is a very happy and otherwise healthy "Red Nose" pittie, however last week she had a random flare up of welts and bumps pop up all over her body that occurred out of nowhere in the middle of the night, like in litterly just a few moments.  I took her in to the vet immidiately and they found a small/medium size tumor in her inner thigh.   After $500 worth of blood tests and 3 days later I was informned that the tumor is indeed cancerous and a mast cell tumor to be exact (Mast cell tumor (MCT) represents a cancer of a type of blood cell normally involved in the body's response to allergens and inflammation).  The cancer has not yet spread to her lymph nodes so there's a good chance that quick removal and radiation treatment will be eliminate this threat on her life.

ABOUT NALA...
Nala is a pittie rescue who came into my life 4 years old and has been a true blessing. Nala started out as my therapy animal but is now a fully trained service dog and helps me stay mentally and physically healthy every single day . I have never been happier than I have been since she came into my life.

Because Nala is still  relatively young and otherwise very healthy, she has a very high chance of beating this cancer and living a long happy life with me.  Her treatment costs are completely beyond the range of my already limited finances. I live alone, pay an exborant amount of rent (like everyone else in the Bay Area) and due to disability reasons, I  live soley on money earned from DJing which, as many DJs working in the SF queer community will likely tell you, we do it for the love because the money is not at all what one might expect.

FINANCIAL NEEDS FOR NALA...

Nala is a joy and a lifesaver. She is a sweet, loving, beautiful soul and I want her to have a fighting chance to live a long happy life with me. Any amount that you may be able to spare will be used to help pay for her surgery, treatment and recovery costs.  Her blood work, X-rays and oncology consultation costs have already wiped me out (about 1K already spent just figuring out what was wrong and figuring out how to fix her).   Again, I have always prided myself in being self sufficient against all odds and I thought I would never ever ask for help from anyone, but my love for her has compelled me to reach out and do the thing I thought I could never do.

I would be forever grateful to each and every person who may be able to help me save Nala's life.  No amount is too small and if you can't contribute financially, EVEN JUST  SHARING THIS would help tremendously.  Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
