Welcome to 2014, Pals! Today I'd like to introduce our very first client of the new year. Meet Leelu, the beautiful black-headed tri girl that is sure to steal your heart. Here is Leelu's story in the words of Corgi Mom Katrina:

"My name is Katrina and I'm a huge supporter of CorgiPals, CorgiAid and love The Daily Corgi! With two Corgis of my own you can say I'm Corgi crazy!! I'm reaching out for support with my Leelu 6 year old female tri. She spent the night in the ER last night to stabilize her low red blood count of 24%. Turns out this first love of my life has mass tumors on her liver. We took her to Davis, California to get her the best care we could with emergency surgery. No surgeon in our town of Fresno, California would take on her case. She's basically bleeding internally and needed to be opened up in order to see what can be saved. Hopefully they can remove the tumors with enough healthy liver tissue left for regrowth. Hopefully none of the masses are cancerous.  

After a long surgery, they were able to remove the big mass but not the little ones because she was bleeding so much. They removed 1/3 of her liver and she needed plasma and red blood cell transfusions. They gave her a medication to hopefully stop the bleeding. If she makes it through the night our next hurdle is to find out if these masses are cancer.

Results are in... The mass they removed from liver was cancerous. We have to meet with an oncologist to learn more about her condition. So as for now I'm taking this as good news and am praying that cancerous tumor does not come back. As told prior to surgery it could come back fairly fast. Leelu's spirits are high and almost back to her normal self besides for the tiredness which is normal after a huge surgery as she had.

The oncologist gave us bad news... Leelu has blood cancer."

The total for Leelu's diagnosis far exceeded our $5,000 cap. I have set her fundraiser goal to $5,500 to cover the PayPal and Fundrazr fees, as well as the $5,000 CorgiPals can contribute to her care. Please spread the word for this beautiful girl, and help us the pay these terrible bills. Katrina drove 3.5 hours each way to take Leelu to the best vet in the area. If Katrina is willing to fight that hard for Leelu, I think we can, too!
