My cousin Sofia had a beautiful lab mix named Crystal. She had been part of the family for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately Crystal died a few years ago from cancer. My cousin & her brother were so devastated. My cousin Pedro {her brother} was so distraught that he couldn’t even go to the vet when they put Crystal to sleep.

A few months later my cousin adopted a beautiful chocolate lab named Lily. Lily was a little rascal but so cute. Lily began to take swimming lesson. My cousin noticed there was something wrong with one of her legs. My cousin researched so many doctors so that Lily could have surgery to fix the problem. Finally after some many doctor visits & research. My cousin decided on a doctor & made the appointment for Lily. My cousin took Lily to the doctor & was informed that she could pick her up later that day. While at work my cousin called the vet to make sure Lily was doing well. The doctor informed her everything was fine & Lily was simply resting. Later in the day the doctor called her back to tell that Lily had passed away from a blood clot. My cousin once again had lost another beautiful lab.

I decided I wanted to do something meaningful for my cousin Sofia who has helped me so much throughout my 25 years of life. Therefore, I want to raise & donate money to The Humane Society in memory of Crystal & Lily. Then present a beautiful card with both their pictures on it to my cousin.

Thank you in advance for your donations.
