About the Campaign

Leroy Cat has cancer in his mouth

He needs surgery, but first an import CT Scan is necessary

Originally Leroy was diagnosed with Stomatitis, a condition requiring dental surgery where the gums become inflamed. After that procedure his owners David and Miriam did notice a bump in his mouth, but thought it was a result of the Stomatitis and surgery.

But it got worse, and on a follow up visit the doctor took and sample and the lab results were Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma, a treatable cancer.

Leroy was referred to an Oncologist (cancer doctor) and has an appointment on May 15th. The first step is to do a CT Scan, because they need to map out the inside of Leroy’s mouth, and nasal area, the soft tissue. An x-ray will not show this, so this more expensive scan must be done to show the tissue.

The problem? It will be about $2500. We don’t have an estimate in writing yet, but that is the approximate price the staff at  the Veterinary Cancer Group of Orange County said to expect.

David is an editor and write and not working due to the writer’s strike in Hollywood. Miriam just had surgery last week herself as part of the treatment for her Bells Palsy, for which she has spent nearly $40,000 out of pocket in the last year. So you can see how they are financially stress at this time! But cancer needs to be treated quickly. This cancer is treatable if caught early, so let’s make this happy for Leroy! All donations are held by us at Free Animal Doctor and will only be paid to the Veterinary Cancer Group of Orange County for Leroy’s exam and CT Scan, so donate in confidence if you would like to help him.

UPDATE: Leroy had the CT-Scan, and now chemotherapy is needed, additional $6000-$7000 cost

    My sister had a beautiful calico kitty that dies of mouth cancer-unfortunately hers wasn’t treatable. Hopefully my donation will help LeRoy get back to good health!

    So many cats and dogs get saved because of new meds and a new awareness of animals.

    Please take the cancer out asap! I had a cat who developed a tumor in her cheek & it grew VERY fast & began to take over her whole sweet little face. She was 21 years old & 2 vets thought it best to euthanize her, in part because of her age. Surgery would have been very hard on her & she’d lived a good long life. I donated. Please be quick & take good care of Leroy!

    I am donating for Leroy because he deserves to live. All animals deserve to live. And it seems that he is very much loved by his owners/family. I have a cat and if I were in this situation I would hope someone would help my beloved pet too. Wishing you love and a healthy future Leroy!
