Unfortunately, my little girl CB, has suffered with her heart condition for a while, but recently the doctors told us that she needs a life saving surgery within the next year to fix her degenerative mitral valve disease. 

Well, the good news is she can be saved with surgery - it wasn't a death sentence. The bad news is the surgery is long and expensive and is only performed in 2 places in the whole world: Japan & Florida. The doctor, Japanese cardiologist Masami Uechi, DVM, has had success with this procedure and has started training other vets at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. They'll start doing the procedure there in June and we've been able to get on the wait list, but we need help raising the funds...every single dollar will go towards her surgery which has been estimated to cost between $40,000-$55,000.

We need the veterinary establishment to look at expanding this teaching and learning of this procedure so that the costs can come down and be affordable by more than just the very rich.

We love our family members no less than those who can afford the extreme costs to save a life!

PLEASE help us and also sign the petition so it can be presented to the powers that be in the field.

If you can help us too on and individual level, my little girl and myself would be so thankful.

GOD BLESS!
