Dear friends and family of Tucker Hannan,
As you may know, Jeff and Adie's eldest feline son, Tucker, has been very sick. He has been getting thin, and when he was recently barely eating, drinking or using his litter, Adie and Jeff took him to the vet to find out what was wrong. He has since been back several times and undergone many tests, which showed him to have a heart murmur, dangerously high blood pressure, and a cancerous growth on his liver.
He has medicine to take for his heart, but it's been difficult to give to him as he is still barely eating. Tucker is scheduled to have surgery to remove the cancer from his liver on Monday, and Adie and Jeff are hopeful that it will be successful and be the first important step to getting him back on the road to health.
Tucker is a well-behaved, affectionate cat who should still have some happy years ahead of him. He has been Jeff and Adie's beloved baby for as long as we can remember, and they would do anything to help make him better. Although they have followed the vet's recommendations at every step to help Tucker and would do whatever was necessary to get him healthy again, the bills for his tests, medicines and upcoming surgery have quickly grown into the thousands.
This YouCaring site has been created as a way for Jeff and Adie's friends and family to give them some financial help as they get Tucker the care he needs. Anyone familiar with the Hannans knows how much their cats mean to them, and if you are looking for a way to ease their burden a little during this difficult time, please consider making even a small donation and passing Tucker's fundraiser along to other animal lovers you know. Adie, Jeff and Tucker are grateful for any help you can give! Thank you!!
Please stay tuned for updates on Tucker's progress!
Samantha (Adie's sister)
