Help needed to save little boy’s beloved pet
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.”
