Please help in giving Mischa a fighting chance. Let's beat this!

Mischa is my 8 year old fur baby. Her birthday is June 30, 2004, and she was given to me as my 1st year wedding anniversary gift from my husband. She's been the best gift received. She's been there for me always, always loving and loyal. She loves to be snuggled and kissed. One of her favorite things to do is play at the park with our kids Millie and Quinten, and sneak up on the couch when we're not home. Unfortunately, Mischa fell down our stairs 4 months ago, and had to undergo surgery for an implant. The fracture was complicated, but we were confident she would recover.The surgeon, Dr. Barbro Nordquist, did an excellent job overseeing her care. The cost for surgery and meds totaled at least $6,000. We borrowed credit and from family to cover the costs, and we thought the worst was over. Approximately 3-4 weeks ago, Mischa's fractured leg swelled up and she started limping. We took her back in for x-rays, and the results showed a "moth eaten" bone. Her bone was reabsorbing, and we assumed it might be infection. The doctor didn't think it was possible for her to have cancer, so we treated her with 2 different antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory, but to no avail, she didn't improve. Yesterday we received results from her cytology report that Mischa has sarcoma, an aggressive bone/soft tissue cancer. We were told if we do nothing in regards to treatment, we may have 2-3 months left with her. I can't bear the thought of not having her at my side. She's a fighter, and I'm a fighter. She's the best companion and family member anyone could ask for. We want to give Mischa a fighting chance, and if she is taken from us, we'd rather have her fighting to the very end. Any donations will help. She is currently seeking care possibly through Sumner Veterinary Hospital in Sumner, WA for amputation, and Chemotherapy either through Dr. Lisa Parshley with Olympia Veterinary Cancer Clinic in Olympia, WA or Dr. Sarah Gillings with Summit Veterinary Referral Center AND P.A.W.S Veterinary Center 300 E River Road Tucson, AZ 85704 Phone: (520) 888-7297 Fax: (520) 888-2565 Email: P.A.W.S Veterinary Center
