Hello everyone,
I wanted to added this because what we know now is by what we thought. Bailey has cancer, spindle cell sarcoma. She needs a $4000 surgery to get a wide margin removed.

This is Bailey. She’s a 5 year old, super sweet terrier-mix from Massachusetts. Sadly, in her early life she was a bait dog and used as a puppy mill; vets say she had been through as many as 3 litters by the time she was a year and a half old. When I first rescued her she was so frail, skinny to the bone. She was afraid of both people and other dogs. I rescued her from someone who was going to leave her on the side of the road. Fortunately, her life has taken a miraculous turn since then and she has evolved in to a happy, social and super loving dog.Her hobbies are sleeping, walking, ripping up plush toys and sleeping. She can sleep in any position but her favorite is any position that is under my back, causing discomfort. She makes up for it with her love, though.Recently I noticed a growth on her gum attached to her big canine tooth. I took her to the veterinarian and they concluded it is a tumor but due to her only being 5 years old they believe it is NOT cancer. The oral surgery will cost $1200 and that will include removing the growth, her tooth and clearing the area of any non-normal tissue.This is my baby, my best friend. She has had a rough life that I am so grateful to have been a part of fixing. She went from the lowest low any dog can come from and has blossomed in to an amazing animal with an amazing life.You can offer support both through sharing Bailey’s GoFundMe and contributing whatever you can. Bailey and I are asking each person to chip in $15-20 however we will graciously accept whatever you can contribute to get her back to being happy and healthy.Thank you so much,Jennifer

THIS IS A GAME CHANGER! I have found a dental surgeon that estimates just over $2000 for her maxillectomy that is half of the prior estimate. I need the support this is my baby, you have all been so phenomenal and I can’t thank you all enough!

Hello and thank you everyone. Her tumor is growing back, it's already quite noticeable again. I have reached out to a ton of charities again and am waiting to hear back. Her survival rate is so high if I can get the surgery done. I have a 500 line of care credit but still need about 3500. If you can share or continue to help her and I you have no idea how grateful I am.

Good news, bad news.
The oncologist thinks surgery with a wide margin should remove all the cancer cells. With a low chance of needing radiation.
She isn't acting sick, and isn't in current pain.

Bad news, her medical expenses so far have been about $1000. This surgery is estimated between $3500 and $3900.
I have been on the fence about how "worth it" (for bailey) it is to go through with all of this.
The vet was very confident from X-rays that it has not spread, and that if it's removed she won't have it return.
I have decided to go through with the surgery plans in a few weeks, if I am able to get the funds. She turns 5 in May, this is too young to let go with chances this high.

First thank you everyone. Unfortunately we have the biopsy results and its cancer.
Spindle cell sarcoma. Her next appointment with an oncologist is the 19th. Its $150 just for the consultation . she needs radiation 2 to 3 times a week. I have no idea the cost but I imagine its going to be nearly impossible for me.
PLEASE help her and help me. This dog has had such a terrible life before me and I just can't let it end like this. Please.
