Pedro has been fighting the good fight against cancer and he needs your help to continue fighting.
"Pedro is a fighter. He's a tiny dog who can take on the world." This is how the veterinary technician described Pedro when she contacted For the Love of Alex for help. Typically, pet owners apply for help directly, but in this particular case, it was the veterinary technician who sees Pedro every week who reached out. Pedro is fighting cancer, and his mother drives 4 hours to get him to the oncologist. She works, takes care of her family, and takes care of Pedro, with no time or money left for anything else. It was clear that the technician thought the world of Pedro's mom and Pedro and was worried about what they would do as costs, even with a discount, mounted.
With the technician’s help, we arranged to pay for Pedro's medical bills. He is still getting treatment. He has good days and bad, but his numbers are moving to the positive, and we are hopeful.
