Wrigley, a female Welsh Pembroke Corgi didn’t seem quite right to her mom Kathy, so Kathy took her to Iowa State University’s small animal hospital for a check-up. More ...

Wrigley is an 11 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi who has been with her mom, Kathy, since puppyhood. Recently diagnosed at the University of Iowa’s small animal hospital in Ames Iowa, she was already known there from procedures she’d had when she was younger. Now, with the holidays looming, Kathy needs help with her beloved Wrigley. Here is her story in mom Kathy’s words.


"Laurie from Daily Corgi suggested I contact you to inquire about financial help with chemotherapy for my corgi Wrigley. Wrigley is 11 and she was diagnosed with lymphoma. I took her to Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. They have a wonderful small animal hospital there and Wrigley and I are very familiar with them. She had leg surgery there when she was 6 months old and surgery to correct a juvenile vulva that was causing chronic UTI. They ran some tests and she has the "good" kind of lymphoma. It is B-cell, moderate and she is a good candidate for chemotherapy. The options were, weekly treatment that would cost between $6500-$7000. This treatment has an 80-90% remission rate on average for 1-2 years. The second option is every two weeks for $1500-$2000, the remission rate is lower and lasts on average 6-9 months. I can't go to Ames every week and cannot afford the better option so I decided to do the bi-weekly option. I would very much love to be able to do the first option and I can do it closer to home but that clinic would charge about $1000/month for 6 months. I am willing to pay my part and if is possible to get any assistance that would be unbelievable."

The total estimate of Wrigley's weekly treatment for a clinic closer to home comes to $3,000-$8,000 per 6 month period. I have set Wrigley’s campaign at $5,500, which includes PayPal and Fundrazer fees. Please share Wrigley’s story and donate if you can so we can give Wrigley and Kathy precious time to enjoy more holidays together.
