On July 23, 2007, nine year old Lily was told that she only had 3 or 4 months to live. In June, 2008, her cancer metastasized to her lungs, and her oncologist said that she only had 2 months to live.
But two years later, after successfully recuperating from three major surgeries (including a limb sparing procedure and an amputation) and undergoing fourteen rounds of chemo, Lily is thriving and kicking cancer's butt!
Her Mom, Hope, says "We have a lot of people to thank. We didn't make it two years without a lot of help. My primary vets and technicians have also been amazing. I also had a group of friends praying for Lily."
She added, "For anyone who doubts amputation, Lily is just as happy as she can be."
Ain't that the truth. Congratulations Lily, thank you for inspiring all of us here to keep on keepin' on!
