This is a fund to help with the expense of medical bills for our german shepherd, Jerry. We appreciate your help.

Update: On 2/17, our brave man lost the fight with his illnesses. Though it is hard to say goodbye to him, we had a good 10 months in which we gave him the best time he could possibly have. He was a good boy and a good friend, and we will miss him forever. If you still wish to donate, the fund will go on until the end of April..

Rest in peace, my love. 1999-2012

Last April, Jerry, our sweet German Shepherd mix was diagnosed with an anal gland tumor. While we were devastated, shocked and saddened that our beloved animal was diagnosed with this terminal illness at the age of 11, we knew we would never give up on him. He also never gave up on himself and never let us question his utter bravery and fearlessness.

After several months of montioring his tumor and keeping him on several medications, he developed diabetes from the drug prednisone (an essential drug for his treatment). After several months of treatment, the vet deterimined that he was insulin resistant. He eventually developed cataracts and lost his sight. This hasn't broken his spirit, however, and he is still brave, strong, and determined to stay with us.

His treatment, however, has been very costly and the expenses continue to add up. He is on several medications, needs special food, and has to go to the vet for check ups every few months. Unfortunately, my husband has been laid off for almost a year, and we are managing, but it is difficult. We would use any donations toward paying down our ever-growing stack of bills.

Thank you for any help you can give.
