Hi, my name is Cherokee…
Some of my friends call me Kiki for short.
I’m a six-and-a-half year old Australian Cattledog/American Bulldog cross, and I grew up north of Atlanta, Georgia. My Mommy and Daddy, who were a couple of Canadians living in Atlanta, adopted me a little over three years ago, shortly after they were hit by a car. They were hurt and stressed and very sad at the time, but I helped nurse them back to health. I even accompanied them back to Canada, to make sure they could get their lives back on track.
Now, a year after moving here, they are on the way. Mommy is feeling better, and she is doing very well in school. My Daddy still has a lot of stress, but he has a really good job now, that he really likes doing. They’re not completely back on track yet, but they’re getting there.
Unfortunately, this is when things went wrong. A few weeks ago, I was having trouble breathing and I started coughing. I was tired all the time. I lost my appetite. Mommy and Daddy were really worried. They took me to the doctor, and after lots of pictures and poking and proding, they said I had a lung carcinoma. I’ve never seen them so sad before.
Listening in on their conversation with the doctor and doing some research, I found out that I won’t be around for much longer if this carcinoma isn’t treated. However, because it was so expensive to find out what was wrong with me, Mommy and Daddy can’t afford the treatments for it.
I don’t know how long I have, but my work here isn’t done yet. If I’m going to make sure my Mommy and Daddy really are better, and they can get along without me, I need to stay just a little while longer. To do that, I need to see the doctor every week for an injection.
I don’t know how long I’ll need to do that for, but from what I can tell, my Mommy and Daddy need at least $2,500 for the treatments.
Can you please help me to help them?
Hey guys. Kee here and her two humans are my best friends, some of the most wonderful people I know and they really need your help. Kee is one of the only good things to happen to my friends in a time when life was dishing out its worst. She carried them through a rough spell I don’t know if I could have handled and she’s given a lot. Now she’s the one in need of some help. If you can give anything at all or signal boost we’d all appreciate it so much. You can find her on Indiegogo right here. Thank you.
