In early October 2014 I discovered a tumor on Honey’s left front paw. This tumor turned out to be a fibro sarcoma, cancer. Honey had an operation that removed the tumor and one toe and her dew claw. Because the tumor butted up against her paw pad, radiation and chemotherapy were required after her operation. The reason the radiation and chemo were required is that they could not get a clear enough margin around the tumor on the side of the tumor that butted up against the paw pad. They could not cut into the paw pad, because if that was done she would not use her foot.
In November Honey had 16 radiation treatments which required a trip to the vets every day of the week except Saturday and Sunday till all 16 treatments were done.
Starting in December until now, we had a chemo treatment one week then a follow up blood test on the off week for a total of 6 chemo treatments and 6 CBC blood panels, for 12 weeks, that’s the last 3 months.
I feel awful for having to ask for donations. The cost of all of this is now totaling at $15,000. While I’ve run through my saving the rest is on my visa card. Some of you out there probably think that I am crazy, but I just couldn’t let my baby down. To top it all off, my car needs a valve job which has had to wait because I could not be without my car for 3-4 days because of Honey’s vet appointments. Thank cod that it hasn’t blown up on us yet. This is next on our to-do list.
It’s been a very rough road for the last 5 month, but Honey is doing very well. We completed the last chemo last week and will be glad to get our lives back to some semblance of normal. We want to thank you all who have supported us through this trying time; it has meant the world to us.
