My 17 year old, first born, Pumpkin misses her younger brother, #Kufi. In less than 3 weeks Kufi was diagnosed with #stomachcancer, chest fluid & swollen gland. The 1st ex ray taken 2 1/2 weeks ago & the X-ray I viewed last Thursday was severely different in color.
The amount we were raising was in hope that we were extending his life for several more months even a year.
What we didn't expect was last Thursdays X-ray #diagnosis & cost only to discover the amount of fluid surrounding his #lungs, his #heart etc... + purchasing the morphine to make him more comfortable while his breathing became more difficult.
Then the next day we had an in home beautiful #ceremonial transition.
In total We raised $2232 - the #gofundme percentage fee (of 3-5% they deduct so it's a little less.
Here's how the has been spent so far:
The cost from VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital last wks X-ray #2 $400 @drtinaolivieri / @lapofloveveterinaryhospice Cost $700 (it was after 9pm in home & SHE is the BEST)
Limehouse Vet alternative #holistic vet clinic $130 (which despite their kindness that was our 1 & only visit)
What we still need to cover: (& I have to see what's left in the account thus far) $900.00 is needed to pay off the specialist & $800.00 to pay off the initial visit that found the tumor in the 1st X-ray VCA TLC Animal Hospital . Plus there were expendables such as special food, the urn for his ashes I pick up in 3 weeks in agora hills (which I don't know the cost of yet) & more unforeseen.
Basically we need to raise a little over $2000 more to cover the rest of our costs & again any left over will go to #animalcharity in KUFI's name. I have already contacted the Ozzy Foundation to see what they can do.
Again if you CAN'T donate money, I ask you to PLEASE SHARE the KUFI's @gofundme campaign.
Honestly I am so appreciative to those that donated #money, checked in, time, suggestions, #healing, & sharing & tagging us. We received donations and support from #friends, acquaintances, peers & complete strangers. I will be collecting addresses @ the end of this campaign to send private #thankyou notes. 🏽🏽🏽
