Hello everyone. It is with urgency and concern that I have started a GoFundMe for Chelsey Conklin and Ryder. Many of you likely either know or have heard of this dynamic duo. If you don't, check them out at Aerodogs on Facebook. Ryder has very recently been diagnosed with a Mast Cell Tumor on his penile sheath. At just 7 years old, Ryder is in for a fight. Already amassing medical bills, Chelsey is looking at a long road ahead, both emotionally and financially, for treatment. Right now it is looking like radical surgery and chemotherapy is the option laid before them. After an initial removal, Mast Cell Tumors can often times need additional surgery as well. Time is of the essence.
Why a GoFundMe?
Help is hard to ask for. For as long as I have known her, all Chelsey has ever done is help. She helps people. She helps animals. She goes above and beyond. That's just her style. Ryder is her heart and soul. Without insurance, these unexpected treatments can be financially devestating. If we all band together we can help shoulder some of this burden for Chelsey who herself gives endlessly of her time, money and resources to foster homeless dogs regularly. It is likely that her bills will exceed our goal but if by chance there is anything left over it will be donated to the rescue groups she fosters with.
