About the Campaign
Cancer in his nose…
it is too close to the brain for surgery,
so Oscar needs chemotherapy.
It took a while for the doctors to figure out what was wrong with Oscar, as the tumor in his nose was very far back. All the exams and testing, including a CT-Scan cost his owner Kristen over $6000.00.
Now, of course cancer is never a good diagnosis, but tests showed that Oscar is a very good candidate for chemotherapy. The cancer has not spread, and his vitals are all good. The doctors are very hopeful that with treatment Oscar will have a positive outcome!
Oscar came to Kirsten’s house as one of three puppies she was fostering for a rescue. The other puppies got adopted and Kirsten decided to adopt Oscar herself, what they call a “foster-fail”. Oscar had bonded with Kirsten’s dog Grover, and she didn’t want to separate them.
Oscar and Grover, BFFs
Of course chemotherapy is expensive! Kirsten is single, and cares for her elderly mother, so money is a bit tight. And she has already spent over $6000.00 just getting Oscar properly diagnosed. All donations are for Oscar’s chemotherapy, and will only be paid to the vet for his treatments, directly. Please donate in confidence that you donation will go right to Oscar!
GOOD FINANCIAL NEWS FOR OSCAR!
Four organizations have granted money to Oscar’s treatment, totaling nearly $4000.00!! So he only needs a few hundred more for all of use to get full treated!
Lexi’s Legacy Foundation is paying for 2 of his 6 treatments and there are grants from the following as well:
