Rally For Zoey - Fighting Cancer

Zoey is two years old, and on her third week of radiation fighting cancer. We are trying to raise money for her treatment on paypal, because we are unable to do this alone. $320 have been raised so far, and her total cost of treatment will be in the $6,000 range. If we could even raise a quarter of her total treatment cost, that would be one of the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us. Even if a thousand people donated $1. That right there would be amazing.

 

 

The story so far:

 

Four months ago we brought Zoey to the vet for what was thought to be a blocked tear duct. Now, after more visits than I can remember, we have learned that it is cancer, which If left untreated, will reduce her quality of life.

 

Zoey has what is called, granular cell cancer. It is very rare, and not much reading or information is available about this type. As of June 7th, a CT scan confirmed that the cancer has spread around and behind her eye, which needed to be treated sooner than later

 

We have also found out that Zoey has been in pain due to the bone damage caused by the cancer. For how long she has been in pain we don't know for sure, but from what the CT shows there is no doubt about it. The vet says she does a really good job hiding how painful it must be, but that's even more heart breaking to know.

 

Presently, Zoey is underway with radiation, on four medications that are taken daily, and one patch that gets replaced every three days. Some side effects from the radiation have been dry eye, mucositis, loss of appetite, and some hair loss on the side of her face.

 

 

To keep up to date with Zoey, you can follow the campaign we set up for her on facebook at the page Rally For Zoey.

 

If you want to help us and Zoey out, you can visit the Rally For Zoey donation spot on paypal. Every penny counts at this point. A donation could be $1 - hell, 25 cents - any bit helps.

 

 

To everyone that has been supporting us, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Zoey is part of our family and we will do whatever we need to help her get through this.

 

- Bryant, Anna, & Zoey
