Hello family, friends, followers and fans of Blizzard & Boo.

Our trail has taken a very unexpected turn this spring.  From a bit of knee pain, through an MRI, to an oncologist in Denver, Co.........

My business partner and best friend,  Charles "DOC" Dison
received news, that turned our world upside down. 
In a single word:   OSTEOSARCOMA.

A rare, yet aggressive form of bone cancer that grew into a frightening and large tumor, both in and around his leg bone (tibia).  He will  endure (3) three rounds of intense  chemotherapy treatments beginning April 18, 2019. These treatments will span a period of 9 weeks in an attempt to destroy the cancer cells, ahead of having surgery to remove the growing tumor. (no confirmed surgery date at this time).

The worst of the tumor removal process, is that he will also have his right leg amputated at the knee, because the cancer tumor has surrounded and destroyed the originating bone.
After the surgery, he will  continue to endure harsh chemotherapy in the hopes that all the cancer will be killed. 

On April 13, 2019 (today), he learned that  insurance, would not be covering as much of the costs as originally hoped.  We are seeking assistance to help cover the overwhelming costs of battling this horrific cancer monster and easing "Doc's" worries so that he can concentrate on winning this battle.  From co-pays to medicines, home care to transportation, all donations make a difference.

Please understand that this unexpected burden is compounded by Blizzard's recent illness and the loss of income, brought on by not being able to fulfill a yearly appearance and performance schedule as we take this time to concentrate on survival, recovery and healing for Doc. 
Blizzard and I are with out words to express our gratitude for your support. 
We bow and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 
Love from, Blizzard & Boo

Doc returns for his third round of chemo on May 30th, the holiday weekend altered the schedule so he will has his arterial chemo first followed by the IV chemo. Please keep him in your prayers as the arterial chemo is the tougher of the two. Currently, the third week of June is the projected time frame for his surgery. With the tumor reduction as of the last visit, we are looking forward to an even greater goal in obliterating this tumor during this next treatment session. Blizzard is doing well but definitely concerned about Doc. Prayers to all residents and critters who have been affected by the horrible storms, flooding and tornadoes across the U.S. Blessings to all, Boo.

UPDATE: Doc came home from his 2nd round of chemo last Saturday. While there the Dr. informed us that the tumor itself was reduced by 60%, which was nearly double their expectation. (Yes, he will still have surgery in June, because of the amount of cancerous bone). On Monday I took him out for some fresh air and sunshine along with a visit to Blizzard.

Day ? LOL... I can't even remember what day it is... Oh WAIT, it's Monday April 29. We just got Doc's latest lab results and his white blood cell count is non-existent. His immune system is pretty much non-existent at this point so he will need to keep consuming immunity boosting foods. I cant image how hard even a tiny virus would be to fight off at this point, PRAYING he doesn't have to find out. His next chemo starts on May 6th so I may not update until our visit with his oncologist next week. Have a great day ya'll. Love and thanks to all.
