We received some bad news . You are probably familiar with our sweet Mariah. She has been part of the BLCC family for many years and has a very dedicated mom and dad, and he goofy-doggie-brother, Homer. Mariah was just diagnosed with mouth cancer. Her mom and dad are beside themselves. They are gathering more information for her care and treatment going forward. Better Life Canine Center will support them as much as we possibly can!!

Moms story

We found a tumor on her gums. I brush their teeth often so it honestly had to of grown so fast. We went to Wilson's to have it removed and get a biopsy. When Dr. Burge started to cut it out he noticed it was eating away at her jaw bone. Biopsy came back that it is squamous cell oral cancer. We see Dr. Obradovich at the Animal Cancer & Imaging Center in Canton on Tuesday. They will do xrays to see if it has spread to her head or lungs. If it hasn't, they will most likely remove part of her jaw bone. If it has spread we will have to go over our options as far as radiation, chemo, holistic, etc. The surgery she already had was $400.

I'm not sure how much the oncologist will cost, but estimates for this type of surgery done at the same place where they removed a part of the cheek bone and it was in the $5000 range.

I really hope it's not that much, but I will know more on Tuesday

Please, if you can help at all, please make a donation. .
