Hi! My name is Antonia Blakeney. I live here in Rochester NY with my two children, husband and our pets. We have two cats (Rosie and Moocher) and a new dog named Merlin. We just learned that Merlin has a mastocytoma (mast cell tumor) on his leg. He already has surgery scheduled and we expect that it will be very successful. You never know what the future holds. My neighbor recently lost her sweet cat Dewey. He was not able to be saved from his cancer :(. I am joining this event in the hopes of raising EVERYONE'S HOPE! Raising everyone chances for getting the help that they need for their pets :) Merlin is totally unaware of the mastocytoma on his leg, and I am so grateful for that. There might be someone out there, who has a doggie that is in real pain. Or a cat! I want to raise money for Rochester Hope For Pets, for that person in need.
