About the Campaign

This is Izzy

Izzy is  a 9 year old, Pit bull who’s been through one wild ride. Now, she needs your help to save and prolong her life. A couple months ago, Izzy broke her femur and needed emergency surgery. When her owner, Samantha, reached out to us, it was too late to create a campaign. Izzy needed to be treated immediately and Samantha is still paying for the surgery costs. Izzy’s doctor couldn’t understand why the break had been so bad. So, he send out for a bone biopsy. Upon further investigation of the break, the biopsy came back positive for bone cancer. Izzy now has a another challenge to triumph over.

Since then, Izzy’s leg has been amputated and she’s home healing. However, for Izzy to survive this cancer and live out the many years she has left, Izzy needs chemotherapy. A total of 5 treatments have been suggested for Izzy and her prognosis looks good. Izzy is currently on an anti inflammatory, Tramadol (occasionally), and K9 CBD oil. Her family is doing the best they can to get Izzy through this tough time. They’ve even set up a Gofundme in hopes to raise funding.

Izzy spends her days relaxing with her family and her best friend Ella. She’s sweet, loving and very intuitive . Izzy became apart of Samantha’s family back in 2009. She got this adorable, 8 week old puppy at a time which seemed almost perfect.  Samantha was pregnant and was worried that her lab, Ella, would begin to feel left out and lonely. Since Ella loved pit bulls, Izzy was a no brainer. “She’s the best dog” Samantha says  “I swear she’s the best dog”.

 

This entire ordeal has just brought Samantha to tears every day. I’m sure many of us know what this feels like. Izzy and her kind heart,  licks Samantha’s  tears every time. Izzy is a deep part of Samantha’s heart and losing her this soon would very much put a whole in their family.  With all of Izzy’s current and past medical expenses, Samantha feels like she’s drowning in debt. Izzy needs this treatment and your assistance would very much help Izzy, Samantha, Ella and her 3 boys. Being a mom is a full time job, especially when having 3 young boys. So, Samantha isn’t working at the moment. Cost of living, groceries, schooling, general care for pets, it all piles up and gets to be incredibly expensive. So Izzy’s surgery and her cancer is just something Samantha never could have expected.

Izzy has many years left to live with her loving family. So, we’re hoping you can help Izzy achieve her goal and live the rest of her life as a happy healthy dog.
