This is a challenge to raise the funds needed for Kyle's stomach surgery so his family can spend years to come with him.

In 2001, my big brother visited a popular dog breeder and ended up bringing home two adorable silky terrier siblings. He kept the older boy for himself and named him Kyle. He then presented me with Kyle's little sister, who I proceeded to name Molly.

Unfortunately, we later found out that the breeder had not been running their operation purely for profit. The health of the animals was greatly sacrificed. Molly, the runt of the litter, ended up passing away within 6 months from kidney complications. Kyle fought hard for his life and beat every illness that was thrown his way. After the first year, he was a completely cured of every sickness and full of energy. His bravery brought so much happiness to our family and friends. While I lost Molly, Kyle was a constant reminder of the love that I had for her. He truly became part of our family, and I cannot imagine a day without him.

Now-ten years later-Kyle is sick again. It was discovered today that he has a softball size tumor in his stomach, which needs to be removed within the next week.

In addition to all of this, my brother has a four year old daughter and another baby on the way. My sister-in-law was also just diagnosed with a rare disease and recently became pregnant. As you can imagine, many of their expenses have been drained due to her medical needs, their single income, and the costs of having children.

I'm turning to this amazing community of people because I have seen what it has done for others in the past. I love Kyle as if he was my own, and do not want to see my brother, sister-in-law or niece to lose a member of their family.
