My friends dog was diagnosed with cancer this week. Because of this diagnosis, they were intending to get married in October but are choosing to use the money set aside for the wedding to pay for their dogs Chemo. We've set up a fundraising sight to help pay for their dogs Chemo, so if anyone can help, 5 dollars here or there would help immensely.
With your help, the best dog in the world will survive lymphoma
I believe this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.
Would love to help and can likely get hundreds to help off of FB. How can you verify this is not a "scheme"? Cause it's a good one if it is; I am not saying it is but need some way to TRUST the parties involved since I know none of those involved. Like maybe a note from the vet. :)
Lost my dog last year. Contribution made. Prayers for Wilco and his parents.

Honestly I dont know how I can prove this isn't a scheme. I did see the dog tonight and he can close his mouth all the way because of the swollen lymph nodes though. If you feel like its a scheme, don't donate anything, but every little bit does help them.
In a world like today, I don't blame you for being cynical at all.
Heres a reply from one of the owners of Wilco:
$700 in 4 hours. You guys have officially paid for Wilco's initial CBC, abdominal ultrasound, prednisone, and first vincristine + cyclophosphamide chemo treatment. He's got a shaved belly and one shaved arm, but he's happily chewing on a bone and I am feeling so amazingly thankful that I get more time with my sweet puppy ♥
700 bucks is a good start. Doesn't cover everything but it helps with their expenses.
My heart goes out to your friends. We lost one of our Golden Retrievers to lymphoma two years ago. Horrible disease and more common among dogs than you would think.
Alright this won't be popular but I'm gonna go ahead and be the dickhead here.
Is this serious? I find this very strange for a number of different reasons. First, I think its a little crazy to call off your wedding for something like this. But be that as it may, I assumed that if they were forced to do this and set up a donation fund that it must be like tens of thousands of dollars and these people just really really love their dog. Ok, that's cool. Where do I sign up? But I see where total costs are going to be 3k? They're calling off your wedding for 3k? Not only that, but they're asking for other people to donate?
Now let me qualify my comment by saying the reason I find this so strange is I'm actually going through literally almost the exact same thing right now. I'm getting married in 3 weeks, and we found out in January my dog needs surgery. I literally just paid the bill yesterday and when all was said and done I paid $2900. I'm not rich and my parents aren't bank rolling my wedding. I'm paying for the majority of it. But I'll be damned if I'm going to call it off, much less am I going to ask strangers to pay for it. We had to cut a couple things out of the wedding including a professional video that my fiance had her heart set on and she's very upset about . But it is what it is. Sorry that I'm being a dick here but I've seen this post on 2 different sites being bumped for the last week or so and couldn't bite my tongue any longer after having just paid my own bill yesterday.
