The Cook Family is raising money for their beloved Emmy's Chemo treatments, every penny raised will go towards her expenses!!

Our dog Emmy had her first mammory surgery in November of 2009. In February of 2010 more lumps came back and she had her 2nd mammory surgery in March of 2010. This past December of 2010 bigger lumps came back in the same spot for the 3rd time and a new one higher up.
She had her 3rd mammory surgery (breast cancer) on January 26th, 2011. Her biopsy results were very grim, she has a high grade adenocarcinoma mammory cancer that is very aggressive. We were referred to the VCA in Sacramento to see a dog oncologist specialist. They did an ultra sound and there was no metastisis found in any of her organs or lungs and her lymph nodes are good as well.
Emmy started chemo therapy on Friday February 4th, 2011 in Sacramento. She will have 8 chemo treatments and in between have blood work and x-rays to keep track of the cancer if and when it returns.
The chemo treatments are $410.19 for each treatment. Her surgery ten days ago cost $1758.00 and our trip on Friday was $810.00 by the time the chemo is done not counting blood work and any extra that may arise we will owe over $7,000.00. This is the only course of treatment for her to have a good quality of life. We are being hopeful that she will be a miracle dog and beat the odds and live much longer than expected, we love her so very much she is a precious part of our family and we are all truely heartbroken, we have had Emmy since she was 6 weeks old!!
We need everyones help to pay for the treatments for our dog. She is part of our family we love her dearly, she is ten years old and still so full of life and spirit, she loves to grab her toys still and so far she is doing well.
We are asking for help we don't have the money to pay for all of this without taking money out of my husband's 401k and we don't want to do that.
Any amount will help, thank you all for your time and kindness and may God bless you and your family!!!

With Much Love,
The Cook Family
