Story

In October this year (2016) our gorgeous boy Kasper was diagnosed with type T lymphoma cancer just weeks before his sixth birthday.

Unfortunately we don't have any insurance and have been paying his vet bills for the last month and a half, currently totalling just over £2000.

His cycle of treatment is a weekly dose of chemo, coming in the form of an injection at our local vets, chemo tablets at home the following week, another injection the week after and then a chemo infusion (drip) at a specialist cancer Vets, who are some 60 mile round trip from us.

His whole course is set to run for six months and so far his lymph nodes have reduced massively to there original 'golf ball' sized lumps and he's doing really well.

On top of the vet bills and time off from work, which myself and my partner share. My partner has also been coming home at dinner times from her work place to feed Kasper, white fish, chicken breasts and sardines for a mid day meal, to try and build his weight back up, as he had lost around 4-5kg before his treatment began.

Due to these extra efforts and his continued treatment I'm happy to report he's almost back upto his previous weight of a lean and healthy 37.5kgs ! Which is great news, as things are all going in the right direction !

Currently were a quarter the way through his treatment and current costs, minus extra cancer fighting foods, time and travel etc stand at just over £2000. At this rate it's going to cost us in the region of £6000 to complete his course.

I know everyone loves their pets, but Kasper is such a great boy, he's so clever and gentle and really doesn't deserve this (no one does!) but he has met the treatments with his usual bright personality and has so much more life to live.

If you are an animal lover, or have had a pet or family member suffer from this horrible disease, I'm asking you to please help us continue his treatment and help kick cancers butt.

Thank you for all donations X

    Just a little update, ally going well on Kaspers rescue chemo treatment. We've had a trip to Derby for a blood test in preparation for his treatment on Tuesday. While we were there we took the boys round Markeaton Park as it's Codys 3rd Birthday! Dispite the weather they both had a good time !

    Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017 ! Let's hope your a better year ! Although were only a few days in, we did get some good news yesterday that the rescue chemo treatment that Kasper has now switched too seems to be working well ! His lumps, especially the main one on his neck are hugely reduced, his appetite has really picked up and he's super perky too ! His white blood cell count was still down (0.8 this time) a week later, as he had his chemo the day after Boxing Day, so he's back on the antibiotics, but this to be the norm now after chemo.

    The last few weeks haven't been easy I'm afraid to report. Today we've been to Shirley our specialist vet for a further blood test, that has shown Kasper white blood cell count is again too low for his chemo. Also his lumps have returned surgesting that his cancer has responded to the drugs and has fought back. Shirley has reccomended antibiotics for 5 days where after his blood cell count returns to 2.0 (currently 0.6) we can administer a chemo rescue treatment. This is a much stronger treatment once every three weeks, so we remain hopeful X
