This is Zoey's cancer fund. The funds will be used to help with the medical costs of Zoey's battle with Lymphoma.

On February 5th 2012 Zoey, the sweetest kitty you are every likely to meet, was suddenly diagnosed with cancer. The cancer had invaded both Zoey’s kidneys and her liver; to save her she was given emergency dialysis and was hospitalized for three days and nights. As Zoey has been my friend and constant companion for these last 11 years I don’t have the words to express how devastating this has been. Once the blood tests came back we found out that there was hope as Zoey’s cancer is a type of fast growing Lymphoma that generally responds very well to treatment. Unlike in humans Zoey cannot have a bone marrow transplant so her cancer is not considered "curable" but with proper care she can live many more happy years.
With the help and guidance of our emergency care veterinarian at AIMSS (Animal Internal Medicine & Specialty Service) in San Francisco California, we have decided the best thing for Zoey was to start chemotherapy immediately. The chemotherapy treatment (which does not have the same side effects on cats as it does on people) will likely have Zoey in remission within six months, and allow her to live the rest of her life, though shortened, in happiness and comfort.
Zoey’s vet is guardedly optimistic and Zoey has made it through her first round of chemotherapy and is feeling much better. Zoey is even cuddling up to me asking me to snuggled like a teddy bear as she usually does and she has been enjoying some rare San Francisco sunshine from the back of the couch with her “sister” Luna purring loudly. She is back to yodeling her goat like hello to all who visit and smiling when you rub her cheeks and chin. Zoey has a lot of life left to live and we are going to do our best to give her that time.
Many of you have been asking how you can help. We cannot express how grateful we are to have such supportive and caring people in our lives. We have created 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 Zoey’s medical expenses.
No donation is too small. Every dollar helps.
Thank you all so very much for your love and support,
Jennifer (and of course Zoey)
