Please help Save Sweetface from canine lymphoma. Contributions will go toward his chemotherapy treatments and vet expenses.

Several weeks ago, our dear dog Sweetface was diagnosed with lymphoma. Having experienced four years of immeasurable joy from Sweetface, we were utterly devastated to hear the news. As many of you know, lymphoma is a cancer that is merciless and swift. Without proper treatment, we have been told that Sweetface will pass away in approximately a month.

Dr. Oberthaler, Sweetface’s Oncologist at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners in NYC, has projected a 90% likelihood that Sweetface will enter remission via a six-month regimen of chemotherapy. We have also been comforted that dogs have an elevated resilience to chemotherapy and that they do not experience the magnitude of side-effects that are associated with treatment in humans.

Although it is undeniable that Sweetface’s life will be shortened from lymphoma, it is more than likely that chemotherapy will enable Sweetface to have an extended life in comfort and happiness. Lymphoma will not be Sweetface’s first brush with adversity. Sweetface has overcome numerous obstacles including a history of abuse by his former owners, abandonment on the side of a road, and a narrow escape from euthanasia at a kill-shelter. Since Sweetface has become a part of our family, he has fully embraced his new life as a very happy, active, and playful dog.

It’s for these aforementioned reasons that we must fight for him. Over the past few months, Sweetface’s numerous medical expenses have gotten to the point where we can no longer handle them financially. Many of you have asked how you can help. We are beyond grateful to have so many caring and supportive people in our lives. We have created this site as means for anyone to give their aid to our beloved dog. All proceeds will go towards Sweetface’s chemotherapy treatments and medical care.There is not a donation that is too small and every dollar counts.

Thank you everyone for your enormous generosity and love. Please spread the word.

Please help us.

Save Sweetface.
