The family & friends of Jeremy & Emily Japs are uniting to raise money to help with veterinary services for Bindi. Please show your support!

Bindi has been diagnosed with a rare congenital abnormality of her cervical vertebra. During her episode all signaling from the brain to the rest of her body was cut off by swelling that effected the spinal cord. Bindi lost all functioning of her body including her breathing. Emergency CPR was administered and Bindi was brought to the emergency clinic in Cheshire, CT. Bindi was later transported to Shelton, CT where she underwent an MRI that confirmed C1-C2 abnormality, spinal cord swelling and bruising. Bindi has returned home but remains unable to use her legs. She is trying very hard to figure out how to use them. She requires extensive care and will most likely require physical therapy and rehabilitation as the doctors have determined that this is a condition that will not benefit from surgery. We are seeking assistance to fund the veterinary services (ie. Emergency Services, Diagnostic Studies, Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation & VMD follow-up care, etc.) associated with Bindi's condition so that Bindi can have healing and continue to recieve the care she needs to live a happy full life.
