Help Kathy Kick Cancer!

Kathy has been a member of our Pet Ranch family for nearly four years. She is a valued member of our grooming team and loved by all of her customers. Unfortunately, Kathy is uninsured and just four months shy of Medicare eligibility. We are trying to help raise money to help her with household expenses while out of work, medical bills already incurred, and future medical costs.

A few weeks ago, she became ill and went to an urgent care center. After a few blood tests, they found that her sodium and potassium levels were dangerously low, and she was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she was admitted for a week. A CAT scan showed a mass in each lobe of the lung, and they did a biopsy to find out more information. Once they could get her sodium and potassium levels back up, they discharged her with instructions to follow up with the oncologist for results.

After only 36 hours of being home, a second trip to urgent care, a second ambulance ride and another week-long admission brought another battery of tests and diagnoses. Kathy has been diagnosed with small cell carcinoma  lung cancer, which they believe is the cause of her body's inability to self-regulate her sodium and potassium levels.

We are working on finding facilities and programs that provide cancer treatment to the uninsured. If you would like to share information regarding this, please drop us an email or bring it by the shop. We will make sure to get Kathy the info. We will also start a CaringBridge account to keep everyone informed on her progress. Please stay tuned for that information to be posted here.
