Today is Jill's 19 month ampuversary!  Things are going great!  She is happy and healthy and continues to love life on three legs!   Having just passed the 2 year anniversary of her diagnosis we are now looking forward to her 2 year in a few months!!

Here she is getting her ampuversary treats:

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Happy 19 month ampuversary to our very special Jillclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclap

So wonderful that she is doing so well. Keep kicking cancer's butt, Jill. Please give her a special treat from Lily and me.

So happy for you,

Joan and Lily

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

Congratulations, Jill! clap

My 12 year old cat, Nicholas, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma earlier this year (2/01/14) following a pathological fracture of the right humerus. We opted for right forequarter amputation. Thanks for sharing Jill's story... it's always exciting to see other cats doing so well post-diagnosis! rasberry

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
