So far I have spent about $7,000 and this is just the beginning. Hopefully in 2 weeks she can start chemotherapy which will be between $6k-10k or more.
To some this may seem absolutely absurd to spend this kind of money on a dog (especially when you don't have this kind of money) but the love and happiness she has brought me and others is worth well beyond this.
If she was acting sick or was otherwise seemingly ill I would not be pursing her current treatment, but in all respects besides her cancer she appears healthy and happy.
In case you are wondering, yes I have insurance for her, but the max payout per year is $5k, and we are way beyond this.
Do I feel incredibly uncomfortable asking others for money? Absolutely. I feel weird and very humbled doing this, especially when there are so many other animals and people who need help. But at this point, I really need the help.
With love and lots of gratitude,
Mimi and Sadie
