Erzsebet's surgery went smoothly, she is fully recovered and healing beautifully. Thank you all for your support and help! See More

THE STORY:

Erzsebet is my lifeline. Erzsebet is also a fighter. As a war-zone refugee she's been through hell and back before coming to join my world. We've had each other 2010 and both live a better life as a result. Without her I'm lost. 

She was recently diagnosed with severe hydronephrosis- her left kidney and ureter are full of fluid and no longer functioning. The organs are no longer viable, are dying inside her, and they need to be removed. While this is a rare condition, her doctor is confident that with this surgery she will continue to live a full and long life.

Over the past year I've been dealing with my own incredibly painful, now known to be chronic, somewhat mysterious medical conditions. Erzsebet has been crucial to me for staying sane through the process. Her "purr-therapy" has been such a help in the biggest of possible ways. Unfortunately most of my income is tied up in doctors appointments and medication so that I can continue to function.

Inital surgery quotes were coming in at $6500-7000. I have managed to find a surgical specialty hospital in Tacoma (roughly an hour from where we live) that can perform the surgery for us for around $2-3k. While this is a significant reduction in cost, it's still more than I can afford right now. My family have already assisted me with the diagnostics and lab tests which have led us to this point. I don't expect to raise all of it, but everything helps.
