Macy has been diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma. We had
emergency surgery to remove her spleen hoping that the cancer has
not metastasized. Unfortunately, post-surgery testing
confirmed that the cancer spread to her liver. Two days
after surgery, Macy had what we believe was a seizure.
Despite our very limited resources, For the
Love of Pits wants to give Macy the best chance at life. We are
asking for your help with Macy’s vet bills.

Surgeons recommended emergency surgery to remove the mass. During
the procedure, surgeons discovered 2 nodules on Macy’s liver, one
of which could not be removed. Surgeons removed Macy’s spleen and
the attached mass, along with one nodule on the liver. In

nodule for biopsies.
