I am trying to raise some money to help with Nina Marie's medical bills with additional proceeds to Orphans of the Storm, Kittanning, PA

On Friday October, 28, 2011 my dedicated companion and baby girl, Nina Marie a Yorkie mix (5 years old on 10/03/11), was strucken with Seizures. She was found at the bottom of the steps seizing and unable to move. She was rushed to the Vet and while waiting, she had several more in my arms. The pain of being helpless is unrelenting. Several hours after starting her on an IV of Phenobarbital and Valium, antibiotics and steroids, she began to come around. I picked her up on Monday and the Vet said she probably has a Portosystemic shunt and needs to be seen by a specialist and have an Ultrasound to be sure then surgery to fix the shunt. She currently is still on Phenobarbital and prescription "hepatic" food to keep the seizures at bay but I fear everyday it will fail. A referral was sent to Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center and the total estimate is $3700. Nina's initial appointment is on December 23, 2011 at 11am for an ultrasound and Internal medicine workup. I am asking for a little help, she is my world. As many of you know, times are hard right now and I am unable to afford the total cost of her bills. I have started a raffle to give away $1200 for a $20 donation you recieve a ticket. With that raffle I will be able to pay for her inital appointment which they require money at time of services. I am also donating any additional proceeds to Orphan's of the Storm in Kittanning, PA.
*You may also mail donations to: %Nina Marie, PO Box 132, Yatesboro, PA 16263 if you don't have a credit/debit card. I can't thank you all enough!
