Please help Lulu

My Lu. I do not have any children, she has always been my child. In all honesty, when she was adopted that almost 12 years ago from the humane society as a rescue, I didn't truly realize how important she was going to be in my life. 

Lu is registered as an ESA (Emotional Support Animal) and goes pretty much anywhere I go. I believe that we rescued each other. 

Sometimes life has us go through some pretty hard stuff, where we question everything, and even question our own ability to live. In my worst, having her there, giving me, that unconditional love a dog gives, helped me through my dark moments and she still continues to do so.

I took my sweet Lu into the doctors for a concern I had about her skin. During the examination, it then lead to an X-Ray, then a recommended Ultrasound....I had no idea that that appointment about her skin, would lead me to a diagnosis of cancer. 

Seeing the large mass attached to her Kidney, I immediately lost it. I want to do anything I can to keep her alive longer and healthy.  Unfortunately, my financial situation is the worst it has ever been. I never have been the one to ask for money, but I am now pleading to anyone that may be able to help.

Any donation that is made will go straight to the wellbeing of Lulu. She will need surgery to remove the mass, antibiotics, hospital stay, etc.

I thank you for taking the time to read this. If you decide to help, even if it is in the smallest donation of a penny, I will forever be indebted to you.
