Teyla's Cancer Treatment: Support Dog Needs Help!

$865 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 1 month
Teyla is my beloved emotional support companion.  A week before her 13th birthday, we discovered she has a malignant tumor.  She had surgery April 9th and with your financial assistance, I hope to keep my best friend.

My beloved beagle helped me understand unconditional love.  Even when I couldn't get out of bed, Teyla always laid with me, licking my face and showing me she was happy to be with me no matter where I was.  Now when I take her with me to work or to the beach, she still plays like a puppy but ...  I know my time with her is running out.

If my love could keep her going, she would live forever.  Your donations will go towards paying for her treatment.  So many people have been so very generous to me in the past, and even though I wanted to stand on my own two feet, I'm humbling myself again because she's so important to me.

I will do everything I can to keep her with me for as long as she's still living her best life because my dog has taught me to live my best life!  Teyla showed me how to love myself, and to greet every moment like a friend I haven't yet gotten to know.  I hope that by asking for your help, I can be a little bit more of the woman she sees in me.

Teyla's pretty sleepy after her big surgery Tuesday! Please, share this campaign if you can: I'd do anything for Teyla to be healthy and well, and we're working hard to make sure that she is!


Teyla has a yucky drain and still the best attitude ever! She's happy and calm as long as Erika's nearby.

We still owe the vet around 1000 dollars plus the suture and drain removals, so I updated the campaign goal. I deeply appreciate your support.

My little support dog has always had my well-being as the first priority. Here she is staring out the window, in case anyone sneaks up on us.

Surgery is scheduled for April 9th, this Tuesday. We still need a ton of help. If you can share this campaign, it'd be huge! Thanks so much for your support and time, friends.

Good news! Teyla has been coughing more than usual, and with her upcoming surgery I didn't want to take any chances. We did x-rays at the vet this morning along with her pre-surgery blood tests.

The x-rays looked really good; only one suspicious mass (the one we already knew about) and no infiltration of the tumor into the lungs at all!

Yes, she does have some bronchitis which could be age-related, plus they're going to get back to me about her blood test tomorrow, however the veterinarian is optimistic because these X-rays are a VERY good sign that surgery will completely resolve her cancer. More news soon.

Teyla will be happy too, as the photos below show you she definitely prefers pets and love over worrying about me!
