    Thank you so much for sharing Barney’s story. We just learned about our beloved, 14 year old Cody’s melanoma. It hasn’t spread, but it requires the surgery to remove a good portion of his jaw. He’s in excellent health other than his mouth. The cost for the surgery is anywhere from $3500 to $5500, then followed by $2500 for the melanoma vaccine (we don’t want to put him thru radiation at his age – which costs more anyway). We are already $2000 into disgnosits, exray, de-bulking, meds . . . we don’t have another $7,500. Does anyone reading this know if there is any organization that contributes financially to vet medical costs? Without the surgery, there is no quality of life and I can’t bear the tought of putting him down because of money. Please email me if you know of any financial assistance programs. Thank you so much.
