Max's Chemo Treatments for Lymphoma

This is Max.    He is four year old and he has cancer -lymphoma.    I adopted Max a year a go from Hopeful Hearts Rescue in Ottawa.   Max was looking for a new home because his original family had a terrible loss and were no longer able to take care of him.    I adopted Max because I have two other corgi and and the younger one needed a buddy.   I also adopted him because corgi are special and need a home with someone who understands the breed.    It took Max and the other 2 corgi about a year to settle down and be friends.   They are so crazy about each other now they do everything together and even have their own facebook page   https://www.facebook.com/pages/Corgi-PoloLucaMax/500352456675240?ref=hl

Everything was going well in Max's life until 10 days before Xmas 2014.   I was brushing his teeth and I found that his lymphs under his jaw were swollen.   The vet confirmed lymphoma and within 4 days of this finding, he was having difficulty breathing.   Max had two weeks to live.  I was so torn - such a young dog, with a new family...so unfair.... I brought him to an oncologist and he thought Max was not ready to die because he had very little symptoms of the desease at this point and time.  So, Max began chemo treatments at DMV in Montreal Qb.   Max is responding well to the chemo but needs more treatments - 3 more - to achieve complete remission.   These treatments are very expensive and Max needs your help.  I have already put an equivalent value in his initial treatments.  Max complete remission requires all treatments and his odds for complete remission is 95%.   Max is young and deserve a chance to live a full live with his two buddies Polo and Luca.   Max would love to have your help....Any addidional money that will be collected will be donated to Hopeful Hearts Rescue in Ottawa.   Give a chance to Max.....

Hello everyone. Max had his third chemo cycle. Things are pretty good for Max. He is in remission and he is responding very well to the chemo and meds. Max' spirits are high, he plays with Polo and Luca and he has fun with the rest o f the pact. There is still one more cycle of chemo left and then he will be on oral medications. During this period, we will need to continue his regular blood tests and visits at DMV in Mtl. Of course, the costs are still very high. Please continue to share Max's GOFUNDME page. I have included a few pictures from his appointment with Dr. Lacoste at DMV.

Hello all. Things are going better for Max. He has a rough patch about 2 weeks ago when his chemo was increased oh so slightly. Max was very sic but got better after about 5 days. So that you get an idea of his treatments and costs, here is a summary. Max goes to Montreal DMV Hospital every three weeks to see his oncologist Dr. Lacoste. He receives there an IV chemo. The cost of this is about 500$. Blood work is about every week and runs between 100-140$. Max also gets oral chemo and the cost is about 300$. I had additional costs about 2 weeks ago when Max was sick because of the chemo. Max has another 2 to 3 cycles left of chemo. as is stands now, Max is in remission of the symptoms but needs to continue his treatments cycles until the end. Max has responded extremely well to the treatments which is encouraging because it can mean that his remission period might be longer....which is so encouraging.....please visit our fb page corgiPolo&Luca&Max to get the latest news....and like the page....thanks for your support!!!
