Abby and lucky are two hound mixes who have both been recently diagnosed with cancer who need your help to get the surgeries they need ASAP.

In the summer of 2011 both Abby and Lucky were diagnosed with two different types of cancer. Abby with bone cancer and Lucky with mast cell cancer. Abby's tumor was attached to her upper left jaw and due to the location local oncologists felt the tumor was inoperable. She recieved two rounds of radiation and chemo and wasn't responding. Doctors gave her just a few more months to live. However her parents were not willing to give up and drove her all the way to Colorado where surgeons successfully removed the tumor. However , with most of her upper jaw removed she has had a lot of trouble keeping the stitches in her mouth and six weeks later she's had two revision surgeries, been restitched ten times and has had 4 biosist skin grafts, and now is facing yet another surgery plus weeks of twice weekly follow-ups and additional stitching.

Lucky's tumor was successfully removed and her owners were told she just needed to be watched carefully for new bumps. Two months later more suspicious lumps arose on Lucky and had to be taken off to be biopsied but thankfully they were harmless. However, any time Lucky has any new spots arise, she will always have to have surgery to have them removed.

Between both the dogs surgeries, her owners are looking at another several thousand in medical bills. This is on top of the thousands of dollars they've already spent. Any donation, no matter how small is greatly appreciated and will go directly to the medical expenses of these two beautiful girls.
