15 years ago I was lucky to be adopted by Roscoe at the San Francisco SPCA.  He has been my best friend and the most adorable cat in the whole wide world.

Two months ago, Roscoe was diagnosed with lymphoma/leukemia, it was not possible to make a definitive diagnosis without very invasive procedures. Since the treatment is the same for both cases, I opted not to put him through those procedures.  His oncologist veterinarian, Dr. Jason Kidd from the San Francisco Veterinary Specialists and I discussed all the possible treatments and decided on steroids.  

Today, he had an ultrasound and blood work and Dr, Kidd proposed another option - the removal of Roscoe's spleen since the cancer seems to be concentrated in the spleen. The surgery will give him more quality time without the suffering and side effects of other treatments.  As an ex-vet tech, I did a bit of research and the more I read about it the more it makes sense to have the surgery.  

At the moment, I'm unemployed and can't afford the procedure and am hoping to be able to raise funds through small donations from friends and family.

If you send me an email I can send you the itemized estimate provided by the veterinary hospital and answer any questions you might have about Roscoe's treatments and surgery.

I wouldn't feel right asking for donations for myself, but would very much appreciate the help for Roscoe.

Thank you so much,

Barbara
