December 21, 2013

As we rapidly approach Christmas, our current number of clients steadily climbs higher and higher. Today I'd like to introduce to you our newest client of The Baxter Valentine Fund. Rosie is a 12 1/2 year old Corgi with a cancerous thyroid tumor, and she has been undergoing chemotherapy. Here is Rosie's story in the words of Corgi Mom Karen:

"I am writing to apply for fundraising for my dear Corgi Rosie. She is 12.5 years old and this past summer was diagnosed with a thyroid tumor. Since diagnosis, she has been undergoing treatment and chemotherapy. The oncologist has done a wonderful job of shrinking the tumor and making sure Rosie is comfortable.

I know you understand the feeling that we would do anything for our pets to make their lives long and happy. It was the darkest day when we got the diagnosis. But Dr. Parshley cares for her patients so well and focuses on extending their good days. There was never any talk of a cure, and we have never heard the word "remission" but if Rosie is comfortable and able to live out happy days with us, that is enough.

To date, Rosie hasn't suffered any terrible side effects either, although she recently had to be treated for a really bad UTI that was probably brought on by her chemotherapy weakening her immune system.

We've managed to keep the bills paid, but the mounting VISA total is beyond out capability. I'm hoping the good folks of Corgi Nation can help out. I know I have donated to CorgiPals in the past. Thank you so much for all you do to help Corgis in need. Rosie is truly my heart dog and I don't know what I'd do without her."

Rosie has been doing agility up until very recently, as you can see from her pictures. Please share her story and help us raise the funds to help this sweet girl and her family pay for the treatment she needs.
