BRAT has been trying so hard to get Payton well after a diagnosis of histoplasmosis, a fungal infection of her colon. The specialist thinks she got this disease by eating contaminated soil as food when she was running the streets as a stray. BRAT spent close to $4,000 trying to figure out what was wrong. Then from Sept 1st to Nov 30, we've spent another $8,150 on the specialist who diagnosed her correctly.
So we desperately need your help in continuing her treatment through February.
She is costing us around $450 per week or $1800 per month. It was more in Sept and Oct due to testing. But starting in Nov it has been around $1800 per month. Some weeks may be more due to meds.

Thank you so much for helping Payton! We will give you updated reports as we continue her treatments. She has good days, then days where she's too tired to walk so she gets to ride in her buggy like a queen in her carriage!
