Jester is kindness and compassion exemplified and covered in fur. Over the last few years when my whole world fell apart - my marriage, my career, my living situation, a potentially fatal illness - all of this wreaked havoc on my life. Many times, when Jester was the only touchpoint, the only unwavering, unconditional loving being in my space. Every day, Jester gives me a reason to go out into the world. Having the support and protection of my best friend beside me has helped me through some of the most negative times in my life.
I am devastated about the idea that he has cancer, let alone it being a reality. Because of everything that has happened to me and to the country over the past year, it felt like this is just one last test for us. Jester has given me nothing but love and faith through all the tests to my faith and stability, so I will continue to offer that to him and do my best to improve his life. I have faith that Jester will be by my side for at least a few more years.
Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to listen, and for your generosity of spirit to help provide Jester with medical care and a chance for a long healthy life with me, his loving dad.

Mia is my rock, my mental health coach, and my reason to keep pushing. Mia sadly never caught a break. Her biggest obstacle was dealing with severe flareups from her autoimmune disease. Constant allergy attacks left her bumpy and bloody from all the scratching.
After years, I finally had this under control, and now we are faced with a diagnosis of lymphoma. Being faced with the decision of either coming up with the money for the treatment or letting cancer take its course was something I could not bear to think of. I had to go forward with the treatment, doing whatever it took to get the money together for it. Being let off from my job during the pandemic made everything extremely difficult. We have made it this far through the treatment, and I have extended every possible resource I could to continue.
The Magic Bullet Fund is helping us raise the rest of the funds we need for Mia's treatments. I could not be more thankful for this and the consideration of people who might donate to help us. Thank you for giving Mia the chance to keep moving forward!

Back in December of 2012, I was living in Austin, Texas and attending school. Miller came into my life when he was found abandoned in a field and taken to a rescue. I was with my then-wife at the time. We divorced in 2017 and he has been with me ever since. I am currently living in my hometown of Pittsburgh where I moved about 3 years ago.
Miller loves to play! He has a ton of plush toys which are his favorite. He has dinosaur, hedgehog, llama, hot dog, dragon…and he knows them well. He loves going on long walks in the park and playing “chuck it” with the tennis ball. He is very loving and sleeps in bed at my feet every night. He loves people and makes friends with everyone he meets!
In the fall of 2020, Miller had surgery to remove an anal gland that had a small growth. The biopsy revealed anal sac gland adenocarcinoma, aggressive cancer that can often spread to other areas. His first follow-up ultrasound was negative. His second ultrasound on April 8th revealed a new growth on his lymph node. He requires abdominal surgery and 4 to 6 sessions of chemotherapy. The vet is optimistic that with treatment, Miller's life could be extended 2 to 3 years!
Miller is very smart. He knows if I am not feeling well or having a bad day. He gets extra close and often licks my face or ears to comfort me. He is ALWAYS acting like he is starving which makes him cause a bit of mischief as he tries to sneak bites of food from my plate. My vet always said, "don't let him be a beagle or else he will be 500 pounds." So, he is on a good diet and gets plenty of treats!
Between my divorce and Covid-19, I have been faced with unexpected financial insecurity. I am a freelance theatre artist who supplements my income with restaurant work and teaching. Covid has shutdown theatre and restaurant businesses, causing me to lose freelance work and my steady income. I have been living primarily on a part-time teaching salary. I've been able to get by but coming up against the expenses involved in pet cancer treatment, I began to seek out funding opportunities so that I don't get buried under debt that I cannot recover from. Being able to fund Miller's cancer treatment will allow me to continue to financially get back on my feet as the world begins to open up again and keep my best friend around for a while longer.
