Re: The word of the day is "hemangiosarcoma"

I am so sorry to hear of Quigley's passing. Hemangio is a tough cancer that seems to be on the rise big time. I lost a rescue to it last year, also very atypically, hers was in the skin.

Re: I need good thoughts for a rescue with a fast growing tumor

It was peaceful. She was surrounded by the five people who were her foster families.

So, I would like to do something for these two families, any thoughts?

Re: I need good thoughts for a rescue with a fast growing tumor

Babe will be leaving this world today :( Her mass has slipped down and she is limping. Her breathing is now labored.

Please send good thoughts that it is peaceful for her and her foster families. We were all hoping for more time.
