Spinal Surgery for Mimi Fundraiser

My name is Dr. Megan Murphy. I'm a small animal veterinarian. I am very passionate about my job, love helping animals and being a voice for those who cannot speak.
The hardest thing about my job, and many vets would agree, are the cases we cannot help due to the cost of medical or surgical care.  
This is one of those cases and she needs our help! 

Mimi is  2 years old and has a herniated disc in her spine. She is paralyzed from the waist down and cannot walk. She needs a special surgery at the Atlantic Veterinary College. The cost of this surgery is 3500$ . Without this surgery, Mimi likely will not make it.  Her prognosis for recovery if she has surgery is very good at 90%.  

Her family are going through a very sad time and have recently lost two loved ones. They are unable to give her the care she needs at this time.  
I have taken over her care now but cannot financially fund her spinal surgery alone.  The clinic where I practice and I are only able to fund some of her expenses. She is a sweetie and we all want to help her very much. 

I am hoping through the generosity of friends, family and people who love animals, that we may be able to raise enough money to allow  Mimi to have her surgery and give her a chance. 

This case has really touched my heart and reminded me that bad things happen to good people all the time and sometimes they need our support.  Thank you for reading Mimi's story.  Any support is greatly appreciated but not expected, any little bit might help turn this sad case into a happy ending.

Thank you
Dr. Megan & Mimi
