If you know me, you know my Gypsy Rose. She's been my best friend, roommate, and co-pilot since the day we crossed paths seven and a half years ago. She's been the center of attention while countless people have stayed at my house on tour, she's offered a second opinion on more recording sessions than I can count. And she's been by my side, always with her trademark smile and easy-going attitude, day in and day out.
This year, a tumor appeard on her leg that has proven to be a mast cell tumor, AKA skin cancer. We've had a few vet visits and we know that the cancer has not spread **phew**. She's been prescribed steroids, which have reduced the size of her growth considerably.
I'm nearing $2000 into into her treatment, but there's still more to be done.
Theres a chance she'll need chemo to reduce her tumor more before operating, and we know she will need a surgery to remove the mass completely.
The estimates for the rest of this treatment have ranged from $1000 to $2000 dollars. I'm working 2 jobs and saving everything I can to put into vet bills, but I can use any and all help possible.
Any funds raised from this will go directly to Gypsy's vet bills. If the treatment ends up costing less than what I raise, I will donate the excess to The National Canine Cancer Foundation (http://wearethecure.org/
) to help other dogs who are having the same troubles as her.
As a bonus, I've recorded a cover of the most fitting song I could think of, "You're My Best Friend" by Queen, available here : http://brandoncarnes.bandcamp.com
