Toppers Cancer Surgery

I'm here raising money and doing something I struggle to do... and that's to ask for help. My family and I found out the news this week that Topper has invasive cancer. The news has rocked mine and my family's world as we come to grips with what he and we are to face.

You all may or may not know or remember Topper. In
fact you may even share some memories with him. Maybe he stole your food from your plate when you weren't looking or you were greeted him when you would come over. Maybe you have helped me chase him down the block or he's slept at your feet. Maybe you've pet him as he placed his head in your lap or maybe you've snuck him some of your left over food. He's the same ol' boy who enjoys sleeping on the couch during the day, licking your dinner plate clean, going for his walks, playing with his little cat brother Oliver, and sleeping at your feet. He may be older now but he still happy every single day. 
Even if you have never met him, maybe he reminds you of your first dog or animal that you loved.

His cancer struck home as we realized we don't know what he and we are about to face. Right now, he needs surgery to remove his cancer and to have further testing done. As you may know I'm a very poor college student who needs to pay for Topper to be seen by a specialist to have surgery done. The estimated cost of his surgery is between 2000-3000 dollars. While we don't know what we are to expect we do know he needs surgery to prevent further spreading of the cancer.
I hate to ask people for help but it's not about me, it's about my big ol' baby who whines to get on the couch with me, who acts like a puppy when he knows it's walk time, who just wants to be with you and have your attention, and who is my baby. He's my dog who I've had since he was 8 weeks old who I can remember bringing home Fourth of July missing the fireworks at 12 years old to take care of and be with. The truth is I love him too much not to give him the best chances. So here I am, asking for help on behalf Topper.

Thank you for even taking the time to read this even if you cannot donate. Please keep Topper and my family in your thoughts/prayers as we can just hope for the best.
