Gabe had his second round of chemo yesterday and it really seemed to tire him out. He didn't have much of an appetite today but he is happy! See More

THE STORY:

I'm raising money to give my loyal canine companion the chemotherapy he needs to treat his lymphoma. He is my best friend, a great snuggler, a phenomenal swimmer, and a dog who has quite possibly the best "sigh" and "scoff" ever. Seriously, its as if he is a teenage girl! Without treatment, he could succumb to this horrible disease in as little as 4 weeks, despite the fact that he appears otherwise healthy. I lost my father to cancer 7.5 years ago, and I'm not going to let it take another life that I love! The oncology specialist says he is a good candidate for treatment because his blood work is perfect and there is no indication the cancer has spread. However, chemotherapy is expensive. He will need treatment for 24 weeks, at an estimated cost of $3,500. This is an addition to the $800 already spent on lab work, X-rays, exams and a needle aspirate to diagnose him. I am lucky to have taught summer school this year, so my paycheck is a little bigger right now, but the costs certainly do add up quickly! Thank you for reading my story. My sweet Gabriel has certainly made a huge impact on my life the last five years, and I love him dearly and will do whatever it takes to save him. He's the first pet I've ever had (with the exception of a goldfish named Speck, whose life was ended when he committed suicide by jumping out of the bowl when I was in 3rd grade) so my emotions are so raw right now. Please help me keep Gabe alive and eating peanut butter for years to come.
