Help needed to save lit­tle boy’s beloved pet

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

A FAM­ILY who lost their lit­tle boy to a rare tu­mour have once again been dealt a heavy blow af­ter find­ing out their beloved pet could be fac­ing the same fate.

Amanda Bogle’s son Beau was just five years old when he was di­ag­nosed with rhab­domyosar­coma, a deadly and ag­gres­sive tu­mour.

Sadly, af­ter a coura­geous bat­tle, the fam­ily was told that Beau wouldn’t sur­vive.

It was then that the Make-aWish foun­da­tion stepped in and granted Beau’s one wish of adopt­ing a dog, a labrador called Molly.

Now, nine years later, af­ter tak­ing her for a rou­tine vet visit they found out that Molly has a tu­mour. They are cur­rently un­der­go­ing tests to find out what they can do.

To give Molly the best chance at life, the fam­ily has said there would be mas­sive costs in­volved and as a sin­gle mother of two, Ms Bogle needs help. Ms Bogle’s sis­ter Lisa Woods has or­gan­ised a fundraiser to help with the as­so­ci­ated vet costs.

“We were just told that there isn’t re­ally any­thing we can do for Molly but try chemo or put her in to pal­lia­tive care,” she said.

“We just want to be able to give her the best chance at life that we can.”

Ms Bogle said since Beau’s pass­ing, his twin brother Jahrad and younger sis­ter Ruby have been car­ing for Molly.

“She used to fol­low Beau around ev­ery­where and would sleep out­side his win­dow,’ she said.

“She’s a re­ally big part of our fam­ily and it’s def­i­nitely dif­fi­cult on a lot of scales.

“It’s such a cruel twist that she hap­pened to get a tu­mour in her lung, just like Beau.”
