New message about FIP Fighters wishes for April 2013
Posted by Oscar Birman (cause leader)
Every donation counts
Here are the wishes for April:
We are starting with a very special one from Chris Cook Biddle:
When i created this event, i couldn't write this description. It was too hard. Now i feel i should add it to the description so everyone knows what happened to my little guy.. he was a shelter kitty i had for just over a year when i noticed he was sick. he had been to the vet twice and the medications and syringe feedings were not helping him so i took him to another vet for a second opinion. after more tests, x-rays and 2 days in the hospital, the vet called and told me that Mr. Swanson had FIP. i knew that was a death sentence so i went and picked him up and we went to his regular vet. more tests! and the diagnosis was confirmed. i had to end his suffering that afternoon. i still can't type this without tears. just like that, he was gone. anyway,before he died, i had a dream about my little cheese puff. i was suppose to share his awesomeness with the world. i would like to invite everyone to post him as their profile pic for one day so my dream will come true. maybe, just maybe, this will inspire someone to adopt a shelter kitty!
This is Susan's wish, together with Jim she founded the Bria Fund for FIP Research:
"April is such a bittersweet month for Jim and me. Happy, because our lovely lilac point Birman Cassie was born on April 6, 2005. Happy 8th Birthday Cassie! But, in the same month, on April 19, 2005, we lost our beautiful blue lynx point Birman, Bria, to FIP at 9 months old. We are blessed to have healthy Cassie and Angel Bria in our lives. We promised Bria we would never forget her, and her short little life had meaning and value. She taught us so much about courage and fighting FIP. We miss you sweet girl, but because of you, we continue the fight! Susan and Jim."
In memory of Bria and far too many, much loved and missed fur angels, if you are able, please make a contribution to our FB Support FIP Research Cause. You can also donate through the Winn Feline Foundation http://links.causes.com/s/clJQxT?r=Gbk9 via PayPal, credit card, electronic transfer, or through the mail by check. Regardless of the method, please designate the Bria Fund for your donation. A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for fighting the war against FIP. We are a Mighty Army, and Together, we will end FIP!
