01/02/2021: THE CAMPAIGN IS NOW 100% FUNDED. Transferred donations from 12/29/2020 - 01/02/2021 (sent to my GCash account) here so the funds are all in one place.
TOTAL AMOUNT RAISED: 13,582.50 (GoGetFunding takes 4% out of every donation and PayPal takes 2.9% + 0.30% (asked GoGetFunding support about this and they told me PH may have higher fees which resulted to the overall amount received in my account).
[Sorry for the bad quality, the screenshot won't upload for some reason so I had to take a photo of my screen instead.]
This amount will be used to supplement Peanut's chemo sessions, surgery costs, and transportation allowances (we pay a neighbour PHP 200 per session for rides) on top of the savings I have for the whole thing. Weekly updates starting Jan 6 'til Feb 24 will be posted! THANK YOU ALL! 💛
Peanut is a beloved 2 y/o aspin from the Philippines.
He recently got diagnosed with TVT that got him a malignant tumour we need to treat ASAP. His mom (me) usually has funds settled for such emergencies but has also fallen on tough times because of the terrible happenings in 2020. The overall cost (roughly $700) is an estimate of the fees the vet advised for an 8-week chemo treatment to be followed by surgery.
Chemo will cost PHP2,800 per session ($58.28 per week) and the surgery later will be PHP11,000 ($228.96). I only have the receipt for our initial visit and his prescription for the 14-day medication before starting chemo for proof (see images).
I've squeezed out all my resources and found myself scrambling for funds for everything. If you can help us out, Peanut will be a smiley, happy boy once again. If you can refer a part-time job that has anything to do with writing, that is great, too! I have to try. For Peanut. x

Sixth Chemo Session - February 9, 2021Update posted by Dannise Mei Galon at 07:25 am
PEANUT IS DONE WITH CHEMO! 🥰(At least for the time being - assuming nothing develops in the next few weeks.)[Snapped after we bid goodbye to everybody!]Vet says to observe for about 3 weeks, but the "spots" are considerably small to stop the sessions. We'll continue the supplements until the end. . . . .

The tumour is almost gone! Peanut's so chipper too and is gaining more weight every week. If the "spots" (the remaining lumps as shown to us by the vet) are significantly smaller by our next visit, Feb 9 might be his last session![Best photo I can take today. Hehehe.][Receipt for. . . . .
Fourth Chemo Session - January 26, 2021Update posted by Dannise Mei Galon at 07:47 am
First month's done! The tumour hasn't shrunk to a size that assures no surgery, but Peanut's still doing very well. Hope we continue to see more good things in the next month![Best photo I can get bc he keeps moving. Taken at home bc I had to stay out while. . . . .
Third Chemo Session - January 19, 2021Update posted by Dannise Mei Galon at 06:32 am
Peanut's doing so well! He gained a little more weight this week and vet says he's responding well to the treatment. Tumour is shrinking, so here's hoping we don't have to resort to surgery. Vet had us buy heartworm meds to improve his overall body function and I got him. . . . .
Second Chemo Session - January 12, 2021Update posted by Dannise Mei Galon at 10:59 am
PEANUT GAINED 1.5KG IN A WEEK! 🥳Today is his second chemo session. He had to get an anti-inflammation shot (normal, according to the vet) alongside his injections. He's been chipper and SO loud since last week! He's eating ALL of his food, drinking a lot, and asking for more food!. . . . .
First Chemo Session - January 6, 2021Update posted by Dannise Mei Galon at 10:21 am
Peanut had his first chemo session today. He had to get some blood work that showed nothing bad, thankfully, but he had to be hooked to a dextrose IV shortly before the injection. The 14-day medication (antibiotics, anti-inflammation) took a toll on his body and he lost weight since we. . . . .
