Beautiful Boomer is fighting gallantly to live, and is winning against the odds!

My name is Leslie, and Boomerang is my dearest companion. She is 20 years old, and has already beat the odds once, continuing to fight and live despite fears and expectations. When she was 14 she developed bladder cancer that required two-thirds of her bladder be removed. My vet was kind, but honest, and told me not to expect her to live. Boomer just curled her lip, sneered, and came back from it stronger than ever.

Sadly her body is now giving out from old age, but her heart and spirit are not.

She is fighting thyroid disease, has a swishy heart, and her kidneys are weakening. Even with all that she is at the door waiting for me when I come home, can't wait for dinner, and loves curling up next to me when I sleep.

Every time we visit the vet I fearfully ask - is it time? So far the answer has been no, and I breathe a deep sigh of relief. I must give her medications daily, and IVs every other day. She sits as still as a stone for these; I think she knows they help her.

I am hoping to raise money to pay my balance at the veterinary clinic. They were kind enough to help me when Boomer needed it, and I didn't have the money to pay. A new, better paying job is covering current costs, but we would both sleep better at night knowing the rest is taken care of. Please help, if you can.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
