He's a 23 year old Anglo Arab gelding, and he needs surgery to remove some cancerous growths.
She lives in South Jordan, Utah, and is currently unemployed but actively looking for work (in the fitness/health administration area, if you know any opportunities). Vonie has used up all her savings while she has been looking for a job, and is now facing the prospect of having to spend up to $1,500 on a surgery & medical costs for Royal, her beloved old horse.
What happens if she can't raise the money to cover his medical expenses?
She is going to have to sell or give him away and that is breaking her heart. I'd like to help Vonie keep Royal and get him the surgery he needs. She is one of the most determined people I know and I believe she will find a job soon, but if she has to lose her horse it will gut her.
How can you help?
Can you contribute to Royal's medical fund please? I would love to be able to raise enough money to cover his surgery and post-op medical costs, as a gift to Vonie! She has been through some really tough times over the past few months and I know this would help enormously! Any amount is appreciated :-)
Why am I raising money for this?
When my Dad died suddenly last year, I was faced with unexpected costs that I didn't have reserves to cover. My friends humbled me by chipping in and raising money to cover those costs, and by taking care of my animals while I was out of town. I am deeply grateful and would like to pay it forward by raising some money for Royal's medical costs so he and Vonie can stay together.
