So at first I was very sceptical and had to swallow my pride REALLY HARD!! But the showing of support and donations this first week amazed me See More

THE STORY:

I am a disabled Marine Corps veteran who has veterinary bills piling up. Eight years ago I was honorably discharged from the United states Marine Corps. Upon my returning home I was diagnosed with PTSD along with a few other combat related disabilities. Needless to say the PTSD was a struggle. I heard about therapy animals and decided to give it a shot. On my 24th birthday( 2 months in the civilian world) I went to a breeder and bought myself a beautiful yellow Labrador retriever. Almost instantly Champ was changing my life for the better, he would sleep with me and get me through some rough nights. When the PTSD would get real bad and I would wake up in sweats from nightmares Champ would be right by my side licking the sweat from me comforting me and letting me know it was ok. Haveing him also forced me outside on days I really didn't want to go out and take him for walks. He was a great conversation starter for me where I would other wise avoid people. Just recently I brought Champ in for a routine check up and physical and the vet found something of concern in his blood. He was diagnosed with protein loosening kidney disease. This was a huge shock and I felt hopeless . I have been keeping up with all of his appointments and medican for the time being but funds are getting low. The vets caught it in enough time but he still suffered from some irreversible kidney damage. He needs medical attention and medicine for the rest of his life now and I am struggling with keeping up with bills as I can not work due to my disability and am on a fixed income. The medicine he needs is $160 a month along with $100 checkups every 2 weeks. I thank you in advance for anything you can donate and truly am greatfull. Champ has done so much for me he will never know .
