Helping Phoebe on her journey to wellness. Thank you for your support!

My 7yr old GSP Phoebe needs a large fatty tumor removed from her left rear leg. When we first had it examined, it was the size of a golfball. Two vets looked at it and stated they thought it was a fatty tumor, but neither will work with us to set up a payment plan. It is now larger than a softball and is growing larger each week. She is starting to walk bow-legged now. I have a very rare disease, opticular myositis, and had to claim medical bankruptcy almost 2 yrs ago and I cannot get any credit anywhere due to discharging hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. I'm not exactly sure how much the surgery and aftercare will cost, but I would like to have this done in Lansing, at the Michigan state pet hospital- her femoral artery runs through the tumor so it will be a touchy surgery. I have not had a consult with them yet, since they are 3.5 hours away and we cannot afford accommodations nor gas money to travel so far. None of our local vets will help even though they know my situation and even though I have sunk thousands into their vet practices in the past. I hate to ask for donations, as I had to do the same when she had pancreatitis, but I have no funds to care for my sweet girl.
I can scan past bills and take photos of the tumor in case someone thinks this is a scam- I'm just trying to get my girl healthy, she means the world to me.
Thank you for being Phoebe's friend!
