Hello and thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this. This fundraiser is for our precious fur baby Roko.He came into our life when he was 5 weeks old and instantly became our baby boy. On his first vet visit, We were informed that he had a heart murmur, which was pretty normal for a puppy, and would probably outgrow it. Unfortunately, that was not the case. After two echocardiograms and a consultation with a cardiologist Roko was diagnosed with aortic valvular stenosis and surgery would be necessary and inevitable . Without this surgery his life expectency would be no more than a year. With the surgery, the cardiologist stated that he could live 9-10 more years. His surgery expences are expected to be around 2000$ which is unfortunately too much for me and my family to finance so that is why we are kindly asking all of you great people who would do anything for your pets to understand our position and this "desperate" step we had to take ! We know that 3000$ is too much to ask that is why we decided to set the goal on 500$ because if you meet us half way it would mean everything to us ! Thank you all so very much in advance please keep our Roko in your prayers and the sooner we collect the funds the sooner he will get his surgery so lets pray it will all happen very soon !
