Help For Rocco

As many of you know by now, this past week has been rough for my family. Last Monday, October 2, Rocco started limping. We noticed a bump on his leg and assumed he slipped or fell and broke his leg. The following day, he had x-rays which confirmed it was not, in fact, broken. He was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. 

This news was not only heartbreaking, but devastating too. It carries a grim prognosis. (Most likely a maximum of 12 months of life.) Rocco's diagnosis is also a painful one, and anyone with pets knows that those medications don't come cheap. 

In getting opinions and treatment options, the bills have grown. Without pet insurance, the responsibility falls on his owners. Any funds raised would be used to pay the medical bills as well as any medications prescribed in the interim. 

Thank you for any help/donation you can give. It's appreciated more than you know.
