Dear Friends and Family:

It pains us to deliver this news, but our loveable Mischa has just been diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. Her only treatment option is a full leg and shoulder amputation followed by a minumum of 10 weeks of I.V. chemotherapy sessions. Due to the urgency of her condition, Mischa is scheduled for amputation this Monday, January 6th, 2014 and will begin chemo shortly after.

Those of you who already know Mischa are aware that she is a vibrant, charming pup with nothing but love, cuddles, and kisses to offer. She is also a determined fighter who has already survived a tragic car accident at only 7 months old. She is now barely two years old and facing another life-threatening obstacle.

Though this is difficult and quite scary for all of us, we are convinced that Mischa will overcome and perservere with the strength and cheerful grace that we have all come to expect from her. 

Our family is taking great care of her during all of this, showering her with love and affection. However, this emotional struggle is partenered with a huge financial burden as well. We are reaching out for your support in this time of need. Any and all donations will help to give Mischa the fighting chance that she deserves.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Sincerly, The Occhipinti Family
