Help me help my best friend Rocky in the battle of his life.

Fourteen years ago, after dealing with a rare blood disorder in my Shetland Sheepdog Max (a battle he did not survive,) I realized that there were many people who did not have the financial resources to help their pet in a time of need. I set up the Max Kaplan Fund to provide money to help those who don't have sufficient money to address the ever-growing cost of veterinary services at a time of need.

Little did I know that at some point I'd find myself in much the same situation. Today I'm struggling with costs beyond my reach with my best friend Rocky. Unfortunately, the Max Kaplan Fund has provided resources to so many people that addressing my immediate need would wipe out the fund.

Rocky was diagnosed this February with Osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer) in his right front leg. Osteosarcoma is very aggressive and Rocky had to have an amputation and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. The cost for the amputation surgery was $3,500 and chemotherapy is expected to exceed $4,000 dollars.

I don't know how I will pay these bills, but it's imperative that Rocky has a fair shot at as much time as God wishes to give him. If there's anything you can do to help, both Rocky and I would be forever grateful.

Best Regards,

Ken Kaplan
