11403026_619413589840_1801115544708044389_nMy name’s Melissa Albino and last year your foundation gave us a grant to help my sweet Cosmo! He was diagnosed with Lymphoma. We had 9 great months together post-diagnosis!

But… I’m afraid I have some bad news.

On July 7th, Cosmo passed away. The cancer was causing him so much pain, he had stopped eating. I couldn’t put my boy through any more pain. He was put down at his local vet.

We’re all pretty sad, but we’re also happy he’s no longer in pain. We also got an extra 9 months with him post diagnosis. It’s not the prognosis we would’ve liked, but we made so many great memories that I’ll keep dear to my heart forever.

Thank you so much for accepting our application and giving us financial assistance when we desperately needed it. Cosmo was and still is very important to me.

We set up a little memorial for him in our home. [see pic attached] we have a little tree coming in the mail to add to it.

Thanks again, and keep doing what you’re doing. You rock!

Take care
