About the Campaign
Little senior man stumbling,
having trouble walking.
Pepe had brain tumors, two of them, but he had treatment in 2021 and got better! Back then he started having seizures, and his mom Steffany had an MRI done. The doctor saw two tumors, and Pepe had radiation treatment, the seizures stopped and he has been doing great.
But in May of this year there was another seizure, and now Pepe is having trouble walking. He stumbles and appears uncoordinated as you can see in the video above.
Now of course, since he had brain tumors before, that is a likely cause, but not the only reasonable possibility. It could be vestibular disease or a problem with his medications. Just before it started happening Pepe started on a new medication Vonisamide. So the doctor wants to do an MRI to be sure.
Steffany wants to know too. Pepe has lived two happy years after his treatment, and he is happy and active now, just having this trouble. If the cancer has returned, he needs supportive palliative care, and if it is something else he could get better! Pepe deserves the MRI and proper treatment he as been through so much and is such a good boy!
Happy Birthday Pepe!
Steffany rescued Pepe, her mom found him stray in her neighborhood over 10 years ago, and she spent nearly $15,000 on his cancer treatment. In addition Pepe’s medication is almost $200 a month. She is a dedicated owner that cares for Pepe, but recently she has been out of work for her own medical reasons. She works with special needs children at a school district, and will return to work in soon, but these are not high paying jobs, and with the time out of work she cannot afford the cost of the MRI right now, though she does have $450 she can contribute.
All donations are held by us, and only paid to the veterinarian for Pepe’s treatment/MRI, so if you would like to help this good boy have this vital test he needs, please donate in confidence today!
