This is Indy's Cancer Fund. The funds will be used toward Indy's fight against Lymphoma.

In October 2011, our 7 year old boxer, Indiana (Indy), was suddenly diagnosed with Lymphoma. Having raised him since he was just 8 weeks old, this news was devastating and difficult to process. Indiana's cancer is aggressive and not considered "curable". However, he does not even know that he is sick. He is still a very happy, active and playful dog.

With the help and guidance of our local vet and the Animal Medical Center in NYC, we have decided to treat Indiana with chemotherapy. Indy is a perfect candidate for this form of treatment; he is young, vital and otherwise in great health. He is hungry. And farty. And silly. And loving. And very much attached to his younger sister, Amelia (who hates to be separated from him). These are just a few of the many reasons why we must fight for him. Indy still has so much life to live.

The chemotherapy treatment (which does not have the same side effects on dogs as it does on people) will likely have Indy in remission within six months, and allow him to live the rest of his life, albeit shortened, happy and comfortable.

Many of you have been asking how you can help. We cannot express how grateful we are to have so many supportive and caring people in our lives. We decided to create this site as a vehicle for anyone who would like to help us. All of the money donated will be used to help pay for Indy's medical expenses.

No donation is too small. Every dollar counts.

Thank you all for your generosity, love and best wishes for Indy.

--Chris and Steph (and Indy and Amelia)--
