About the Campaign

Young dog got cancer!

Yoda is a super active, fun boy and he is only six. About a month ago he seemed to be tired, unusual for him and his breathing got labored, and short. His owner Andrew took him to the ER vet and they did a number of tests. Diagnosis: Lymphoma.

Yoda is young, and he get’s regular check ups, so the hope is they caught it early. Andrew wanted to get chemotherapy right away, so he began treatment for Yoda at the ER. There is a 25 week method, call the CHOP Protocol, which Yoda started on immediately. He is now coming up to week 6. (Read about CHOP here)

Yoda loves Kayaking 

Yoda is now doing his chemo through Ohio State University, where Andrew also happens to work, as a patient coordinate (with humans!). He has been responding really well. He had one incident where he got really sick for a day, and had to go back to the ER, but other than that one time he is energetic, and seems to be improving even. Poor little guy needs to get back to his old self, and get back on his adventures!

And backpacking!

Chemotherapy is about $400 per session, and there are 25 sessions in this treatment plan. It varies slightly, and the one reaction Yoda had ended up with a big ER bill already, but you add it all up and it can be over $10,000. Andrew has already spent over $6000 on all of this up to now.

Yoda has raised some money already, and Andrew is paying a substantial part too, but there is no way he can cover it all. All donations here are held and paid only to Yoda’s chemo treatments, below you can see one week’s bill (click to enlarge):
