We created the “Have a Heart for Isabella” fundraiser to raise money for heart surgery for our precious beloved Chihuahua

My husband Ron, our three boys, and I lost our beloved Chihuahua Tabby two years ago to cancer. We were forced to sit by and watch as our poor little girl wasted away, as we tried our best to keep her comfortable. When that little precious dog died, part of us died with her. We grieved for our baby for a very long time; then we decided to get another dog to help fill that void in our hearts. Within a week of getting our new baby girl Isabella, we took her to the vet who diagnosed her with a severe heart murmur. The vet said she needed to have tests done, but the tests would cost about a thousand dollars. We finally were able to come up with the money for Isabella’s tests this past month. Our vet did part of the tests and the rest were done by a veterinary cardiologist. Our baby girl has been diagnosed with severe Pulmonic Stenosis, and needs to have heart surgery almost immediately. She is already showing signs of health degeneration, she fatigues quickly and when she plays she often has coughing spells. She also is only able to go on short walks, especially when it is warm outside. The cardiologist told us that the procedure needs to be done immediately to avoid permanent damage and possible sudden death. We have to come up with another $2,000 in order for our baby to have her surgery. My husband is a disabled veteran and he has several health problems that we are also dealing with at this time too. Would you please help give Isabella a healthy heart and a normal life? Thank you in advance for your consideration of our situation and your generosity. We don’t want to have to watch as our baby fades away again. Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns
