Help Ernesto Get Healthy

From Asil Boyacá

Ernesto is getting older and has needed a lot of medical support lately. Right now he needs a biopsy to determine whether he has irritable bowel disease or small cell lymphoma.

More Info

I have done a lot of work rescuing dogs and cats. I’ve taken in and cared for many and found homes for more. When my black kitty died a friend of mine told me his cat was pregnant. I said, if there’s a black one I’ll take him. It turned out there was a black one and I met him a few days after he was born. He came to live with me after he had spent eight weeks with his mom and has lived with me ever cents. Ernesto just turned 16 this summer. He has been struggling with kidney disease for the past year or so but was doing really well. Recently he started losing weight dramatically and has gone from 16 pounds to 11 pounds. His symptoms are either those of Irritable Bowel Disorder or small cell Lymphoma. We have done all the blood tests and urinalysis that we can and even an ultrasound but can’t be sure what the course of treatment needs to be until he has a biopsy. The quote we have for the biopsy is between 2300 and 4500 dollars. His treatments and his brothers treatment (a Chihuahua named Tito) have put us in debt substantially. At this point we cannot afford the biopsy. The purpose of this fundraiser is to help us pay for the biopsy and also to help us pay for that that that our family has incurred taking care of our senior pets. Please help us so that we can get Ernesto healthy and continue to take care of the rest of the family.
