for Graham

OK, internet people. This is Amy and Liz, friends of Katie's here in DC. We've hijacked her blog today to make a big ask of all of you. 

As you probably know by now, Graham (Katie's first dog) had surgery for a blocked intestine on Wednesday night, and is continuing to need critical care. Katie and Thom are doing everything they can, but this stuff is expensive and his needs are fast outpacing what they can afford. Of course Graham is their baby, and we all love Katie, Thom, Graham, Molly and Sofie, so we're committed to pulling out all the stops to make sure that they can give him the care that he needs based on the vet's recommendation. 
So, please help. Any donation of any size is appreciated and can be made through PayPal directly to Katie by using either katiemingram@gmail.com or runthisamazingday@gmail.com. Every penny will go directly to the vet bill, and any excess (if we're lucky enough to raise that much) will go to a golden retriever rescue in the northern VA/DC area that Katie volunteers with.


You can always reach us directly too if you want to help in other ways at welcometobostonblog@gmail.com (Amy) or lizardruns@gmail.com (Liz).

Thank you!
Amy & Liz

P.S. If you would prefer to send a check directly or contribute to the vet bill directly, please comment below or email one of us for Katie's address or the vet contact information.
