Help Daizy fight cancer!
Daizy is a 6 1/2 year old rottweiler. She is one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs anyone could hope to meet. In December, she began to walk with a limp. When my husband and I took her to the veterinarian, we discovered through X-rays that Daizy had cancer in her right front leg. A subsequent visit revealed that the cancer had not spread, at least in any detectable way, to other parts of her body. The doctor gave us a choice: Either Daizy would die or we could have her leg amputated and follow-up with chemotherapy. We chose to have Daizy's leg removed, and she is showing remarkable signs of recovery from the operation.
On December 31, 2011, Daizy was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Without treatment, Daizy is expected to live for 3-4 months. With chemotherapy she is expected to survive beyond a year! Chemo alone is $4,500! Osteosarcomas account for only 5 percent of all tumors in dogs, but the cancer has a very high risk of spreading, particularly to the lungs. This is an aggressive cancer of the bone, and treatment often requires amputation of the affected limb coupled with chemotherapy to provide temporary relief from this disease.
We had to have Daizy’s right front limb amputated on January 4, 2012 due to the cancer. She has amazingly adjusted so well to the loss of her limb and gets around really well on 3 legs.
My husband and I want to keep Daizy in our lives for as long as we can. Because of the high cost of medical care we have created this fund in order to raise donations to help Daizy.
