Please help Joy receive life saving FIP treatment!

Joy is a sweet and brave girl who was rescued from the streets of Hagerstown, MD as a tiny kitten - this precious girl is a true survivor. When I first saw her at the rescue she jumped into my lap and chose me as her "Mom".  She is a wonderful and loving companion, always offering her opinions and looking after her human.

In June 2021, suddenly this lively girl lost her vitality and began to fade away. I received the devastating news that she had FIP, a terrible and deadly disease with the ability to kill a cat in a matter of weeks or even days. I was told the only option was euthanasia.

Overwhelmed with sorrow,  I braced myself for the loss of my little friend.  Then I  learned of a new treatment that is saving cats lives from this horrible disease.   The cost of the treatment is high, however thousands of cats' have been successfully treated with this medicine and recovered.  When I heard of the treatment I knew it was our only hope. 

I was able to begin her treatment two weeks ago, the light has returned to her eyes and she continues to show signs of improvement.  However she must continue the full course needed for a cure.   If she gets a full course of treatment she is expected to recover fully, however without this medicine my sweet, brave girl will die.  

Please help give Joy the happy ending she deserves!   God bless!
