Stella Bear surgery

This is to help me pay for Stella (my Bernese mountain dog) to get surgery. Im enlisted in the USAF Pararescue, and as many of you know I recently went through a rough divorce which ended up being awesomely expensive. One week after that was finalized I was walking Stella and she flinched as though she stepped on a cactus, and her leg went limp. I thought she strained her leg or something, however, a week later her leg was still lame, so I took her into the vet who told me the ligament that holds her tibia to her femur was torn and she needs surgery, which would cost about $4,000. This overwhelmingly crushed me because the reality of not being able to afford it on top of my recent past. Stella Bear is a huge loving part of this family and we would love to be able to help her heal. If you know me you know I have trouble asking for help, but this time... I could use it. A few friends recommended I look into this site and try it out, so here I am. If anyone could help out in any way we would be forever grateful! Thank you.
