About the Campaign
Mocha has two tumors,
one is probably cancer.
Mocha is 9 year-old Avery’s pet dog. The family got Mocha as a puppy five years ago, and Avery and Mocha are best friends, and were both born in October!
Avery and Mocha when Mocha was a puppy:
The family noticed a small bump growing on Mocha’s back, and took her to the vet. There is was also discovered that there is a tiny bump on one of Mocha’s nipples. The doctor is pretty sure the bump on the nipple is cancerous and he wants to remove it right away! The other tumor is probably benign (not cancerous), and needs to be removed as well.
Avery and Mocha today:
Avery is very worried for Mocha, because the doctor told the family that if the tumor is not removed soon, it will spread and kill Mocha! Also, the tumor on Mocha’s back just started oozing a little puss, and though it is probably not an emergency, it looks bad and is scary to Avery to see.
The total cost for the surgery and x-rays and tests is $905. Also, we would like to have Mocha spayed, which will be about $300 more. The family has some money, but they cannot afford the entire cost of the surgery. All donations are specifically for Mocha, and we only pay our donations directly to the vet office, so please donate in confidence. Can you help Mocha get surgery soon? Fortunately the cancer was caught early, so now is the time to act! Thank you.
