This is the "Lucy's New Leash on Life" Cancer Fund. The funds will be used for her pet medical costs and related expenses.

After Oct 31st, our friends at Labrador Harbor Inc, have set up a donation link where all proceeds go directly to UCDavis Veterinary Hospital to an account dedicated to Lucy's medical costs.  These donations are tax deductable.  To access this link go to www.labradorharbor.org/labsinneed.html click on the Lucy story (you must have a PayPal account).  Again Thank You All for your generous donations!  Connie & Lucy

Lucy is our beautiful 9 year old yellow lab. Last January she developed an ear infection and the vet would treat her with antibiotics and ear medication which would help temporarily, but it would keep coming back. In August we noticed a hard lump behind her ear. After a biopsy was done we found out she had a malignant tumor in her ear canal. The type of cancer is squamous cell carcinoma. Our next trip was to UC Davis which is an excellent veterinary teaching college in Davis, Ca. The oncology dept has suggested a ct scan ($1200) surgery ($2500) followed by another ct scan ($1200) and possibly radiation (16-20 at $200 each session). I can barely make ends meet and have been approved for $3000 to pay for her medical expenses but once I max out it will be a financial struggle. One look at her smiling face and wagging tail breaks my heart as she is faced with not getting the medical attention she needs because I couldn't afford it. She seems healthy and happy, she's eating and I have made it a point to throw her favorite tennis balls in the pool so she can get her last bit of swimming in before she goes into surgery this Friday Sept 14th. She will get her CT Scan and her surgery and if you can not help out financially then I would appreciate your prayers.
