Uskiahs Battle With Lymphoma

If anyone knows Hayley and I you know that our children have a lot of fur and four paws! We love them with all that we are and spoil them rotten with treats and toys! Uskiah is a big boy who loves to give kisses, snuggle and he seems to have a permanent smile on his face whenever you see him. Some of his favorite activities are long car rides with his head out the window with Momma Hay, chewing on his Frisbee, snuggling up for much needed days off on the couch with his Momma Darc, and walks with his Grandparent's! 

Today we just found out that Uskiah, who is an almost 4 year old (his birthday is this Sunday May 10th!), very energetic, snuggle bug lover of a boy has lymphoma. The biopsy took almost a week to come back so at this point the only move that we have is to start Chemotherapy for him. Chemotherapy for dogs is incredibly expensive as well as a very lengthy process, however our vet has great hope that if we start it soon, if his lymphoma reacts well to it, that it could greatly increase his life expectancy and quality of life. Seeing as he is our boy we know that he is a fighter and he plans on fighting this nasty cancer with all that he has! After loosing Uskiah's brother, Haas, in September we want to give Uskiah the best fighting chance that he has at going into remission so he can be with us for a while longer! 

Any donations will go directly to Uskiah's vet bills to help us pay off the cost of his Chemotherapy. Any donations, no matter the amount, will be gratefully appreciated by our family! Please take a moment to consider helping us help Uskiah, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! If for some reason we do reach our goal, any money over the amount will be donated to other dogs and families like Uskiah in need!
