My beautiful Siamese kitten Anastasia, who is just 1 year old has been diagnosed with Mediastinal Large Cell Lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer.
Last week I noticed her breathing was becoming laboured and she had poor appetite, so I took her to see the vet. She was admitted into an oxygen chamber in the emergency hospital and given steroids to help stabilise her. The next day she was admitted into the intensive care unit of the Royal Veterinary Hospital where she under went a number of tests. A 5cm mass was discovered in her chest cavity, which was causing the laboured breathing, poor appetite and lethargy. A biopsy was taken which confirmed her diagnosis of Mediastinal Large Cell Lymphoma.
There is no cure for this type of cancer, but chemotherapy can help improve her quality of life and extend her life. I am trying to raise money to try help fund her chemotherapy treatment. Chemotherapy rarely causes side effects in cats. It will help her by shrinking the tumour so she can live a normal life and enjoy the last of her time here with us. Without chemotherapy her prognosis is just 4 - 6 weeks. Chemotherapy can give her months, or in some cases years. The problem is treatment is very expensive and more than what we can afford. She is insured but her insurance is almost maxed out, so the extra is needed to complete her treatment course to give her the best possible chance.
If anyone can help by donating anything whatsoever to help her cause it would be hugely appreciated!
