The Mom and friends of "Vanilla" are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against cancer of the ear canal. Please help her...

Vanilla was rescued approximately 3 years ago from a life of being at the end of a chain and was pregnant at the time of rescue...I can't imagine what she went through at the end of that chain. She has learned to trust and love in thewonderful new life in her new home for the past 3 years.... Vanilla is such a happy girl, even now....I noticed that she had began to shake her head a bit when walking around, then she made a whimper when I hugged her...I noticed the next day that she was rubbing her ear on the ground or against my leg ... I took her to the vet expecting her to have an ear infection.... I received news that left me in shock and in tears.... I looked down at this sweet. trusting face and I knew I probably couldn't afford the treatment..... She has been examined by 2 different vets and both feel that she does have a tumor of the vertical ear canal and she was referred to a speciality clinic for a surgical procedure known as a TECA (total ear canal ablation). It is a HUGE surgery with a price to match.... It will render her deaf in that ear, but it will save her life.... She is the sweetest baby girl... She deserves a chance at life. Her birthday is on Halloween and she will turn 5 years old... She is so very young to have this rare condition... If you could, please help her.... I can afford only a small part of the cost... I am a single K9 Mom and this is definitely and unexpected cost, but I must try to find a way to give her this chance at life. The costs are estimated to end up at approximately $4,500.00 with CT scans, labs, pathology and surgery and extra cost post surgical that aren't covered in the original cost of surgery... Time is an issue because this tumor is fast growing verified by the difference in size within the last week... Her surgery is tentatively scheduled for 10/2/2012....

Thank You For Your Time ....
Vanilla and her Mom....
