Joey Roberts needs surgery to remove a mass on his thyroid

The cherry blossoms are always beautiful up there. I think peak bloom time is coming up soon. There is a nice winery up there Potomac Point Winery. Excellent place to stop next time you are that way.

Okay, my turn for a matching challenge for $100 in memory of my dog Poco, who had a parathyroid mass removed 3 years before he passed from liver cancer. So I know how much it costs!

He NEEDS our help...

What a night here in NE Ohio...I wanted to get the websites over early and of course, the FOURTH time we've been without power in the last month...something fishy going on here...never the less.....here are the websites I have for you, some may be duplicates but I'd rather have you see it twice than not at all.....

I know the last few PINs have had some night time angels...can we do the same for Joey? We have a MATCHING CHALLENGE going on...ALL donations are doubled...and can we SHARE?? Please.....

Judy, THANK YOU for doing so much work on Joey's behalf...you are such a great advocate and provide so much support to those who need help. You've really outdone yourself here. And what the heck is going on with those power outages?

IMOM angels, PLEASE let's get those donations rolling in for Joey. I'm really concerned...I don't know why there is such a bottleneck now.

Remember, there is a MATCHING CHALLENGE, so your contribution is doubled. Please give Joey the help that he needs so he can be with his human and animal pals.

We've never missed a fundraising challenge...let's not make this a first.

Sonja, what is the turn around time for your vet for doing this surgery once all funds are raised?

Nervous and anxious to see the next fund update...

Joey $405 in donations and needs $1,675 more.

There is presently $90 left on the Matching Challenge!

Thanks to all for the donations - CatPaws, I didn't count your donation toward the matching challenge - there's still the incentive to come DOUBLE YOUR DONATION!

I'm hoping we can get funds rolling in for sweet Joey, but with the amount we need to raise, we'll have to SHARE with everyone we know. PLEASE, send everyone you know the link to this forum. Let them read all about Joey and how much his mom loves him. Every and all donation of any size will help us reach our goal.

Here's a shortened link to this forum page you can copy and paste http://tinyurl.com/m3ylkbe

Let's also share on Facebook and re-Tweet - all it takes is a click.

I am ALWAYS up to a CHALLENGE...don't be intimidated by the amount needed...we've done this before...just think in smaller amounts...right now we have the benefit of a MATCHING CHALLENGE....ALL monies are doubled...so no donation is too small.....

and Dawn is right...we need to SHARE Joey's story with all our friends, ask them to share with their friends and so on down the line.....

Sonia is really working hard to find outside funding...and it's hard for her to hear sorry, I can't help you...we are here to support her efforts and keep her spirits up while she works so hard to help her boy.....

did you see his photos?? He's a much loved boy that needs help.....today is the day, I can feel it.....

please Angels, Time can make all the difference in a case like this, literally between life and death.

Joey is a doll baby. His elevator tour made me smile.... just like a beagle. There is something so special about beagles, and they are resilient little troupers. Please help us save this one. EVERY PENNY COUNTS.

And the fact his best friend is a cat, shows what good taste he has (according to the Pride).

CatPaw's I too REALLY loved Joey's elevator story...wasn't that CUTE!!!

:Angel15: I know that IMOM has had some pricey PINs up recently and Joey needs a good amount of funding BUT don't be intimidated...as a group, WE CAN DO THIS...let's think small right now...let's get that FIRST $500.00 under our belt...plus we have a MATCHING CHALLENGE going on...so nothing is too small...

Judy G said her dog had this same surgery and handled it well...let's see what we can do for Joey, he sounds pretty spunky himself...

let's give this little guy a chance to stay with his Momma that loves him so!!

Thank you so very much for the suggestions Judy. I only qualified for a few of them and applied...I will update you as I hear back. As far as the surgery goes...I went ahead and set an appointment for the surgery in hopes that something would come through. it is April 16th. If I do not have the funds by then, The next open date is in May. I just don't want to wait that long because of how much this thing grew from the initial discovery date.

Donation made for sweet Joey. I never got to spend time with my old guy - he was supposed to have a few more years with me, but we were cheated out of our time together by his cancer.

The time you spend with a senior is to be treasured. May you and Joey have the years together that you deserve.

Thank you so much mikken. There is a saying that I read once that makes me think of Joey. Its a dog cuddled up to his owner and saying "There are many humans out there, but this one is mine." Every time joey comes up to me and sits down (always on my foot for some reason) he tilts his head up and his big ears flop back and he stares up at me....I can see it in his eyes and almost hear him saying it to me. He tugs at my heart strings....and then he tries to steal my food! LOL
