Lexi's story

Lexi is our baby girl that is friend, door bell, companion dog and super sweet temperment. The news was devastating and were trying to do all we can for her- day and night. We was really surprised to see the lack of available funding options for the beloved family member and we have never felt more alone. Watching the extremely rapidly growing mass has been heart breaking; then comes the question of amputation or not. Joined a website that someone else asked about limb amputation and the comments tore the lady apart for even considering it. Lexi is with the boys no matter what theyre doing- even watches them play video games. The cuddle time with her is so precious. The oncologist says with limb amputation, she may live another 2-4 years. Her heart, lungs, abdomen and lymph nodes are clear so far but just waiting for the next devastating blast of news when one of them isnt clear anymore.

Cancer fighting tip from Lexi's owner Melissa M.

    Dobson's owner Hi, Melissa, I'm sorry you guys are going through this. If you are considering amputation, there are a couple of websites/online support groups/resources you may want to look into for information and support. Go to tripawds.org and tripawds.com. There's a whole community of pet owners whose pets have undergone amputation. Many of the dogs and cats have done really well. Best wishes. -- Eann (Dobson's mom)
