hello everyone - it is with a heavy heart that I write this update...
September 29, 2016

Please pray for Mar and Claudio tonight - they are faced with having to have Tybalt euthanized as his cancer has metastasized to his lungs and See More

THE STORY:

Tybalt is a sweet and beautiful 6 year old male neutered Boxer, and he is one of my sister's and brother-in-law's beloved furbabies. Unable to have human children, Tybalt and his cat-siblings, Lilla and Leonard, are Martina and Claudio's furkids. They lost their other female Boxer Akasha several years ago when she was 6 years old, due to an aggressive untreatable metastatic cancer. Tybalt unfortunately has been diagnosed with cancer as well but luckily, he manifested clinical signs that helped them detect his renal tumour early enough that it has not metastasized yet. Tybalt has already had an ultrasound and CT scan performed at a referral specialty hospital and it appears that the tumour is localized to the left kidney only and no metastasis is apparent, so the next step is to perform a nephrectomy of the left kidney. Tybalt is scheduled for surgery next week. The doctors are optimistic that Tybalt is strong enough to undergo this complicated surgical procedure and believe his remaining kidney is healthy enough to work on its own. Once they remove the kidney they will send it away for histology to determine the nature of the tumour -- determining the type of cancer helps to estimate long-term prognosis and survival time for the patient and also helps to determine if chemotherapy and/or radiation are also required post-op. All of these life-saving procedures are quite expensive, and with all of this coming up so suddenly, it sure would help to get a little help from Tybalt's friends. If lots of people can send even a little monetary gift Tybalt's way, then all those little gestures will add up into a really big deal! Just think of all the money you didn't have to give to Mar and Claudio if they had human kids -- no presents for baptisms, birthdays, communions, confirmations, buying raffle tickets and chocolates and other stuff for school and sports fundraisers...so Tybalt and his cat-siblings would sure appreciate it if you could pay it forward now and help his family cover a little bit of his medical bills. :)

Thanks for taking the time to read Tybalt's story.
