Please help Bo!

Bo is 11 years old.  He has been diabetic since 2010.  In August his pupil got really large and he started crying.  On September 25th he was diagnosed with glaucoma and started on eye drops.  The reason his eye looks like that is because the lens slid in between the cornea and the iris.  We don't believe he can see out of his eye anymore.  On October 6th I noticed creases on his cornea.  October 7th he had an emergency vet appointment.  The pressure in his eye was getting worse.  That was what caused the grooves in his eye.  He had to have his eye removed ASAP because it could have ruptured at anytime.  On October 13th he had his eye removed.  Today (October 28th) he is getting his stitches removed.

Why do I need help?  I am disabled and I only get $742 a month which doesn't even cover my basic living expenses.  As a result I do without a lot of things that most people take for granted.  I do not have a car or anyone who could take me anywhere.  As a result, between the cab fare, car rental, tolls, and gas it costs almost $150 just for transportation for each visit.  

I desperately need your help.  The money that has already been raised has gone for transportation, medications, surgery and site fees.  Please, if you can donate, any amount will help immensely.  Even $5 will help because it all adds up.

Thank you so much for your time and generosity.  Take care and God bless!
