Apppeal to save Ben.

Dear all
Pictured is ben the whippet cross, he is 26 months old, currently he is at the PDSA in Gillingham kent.
Suddenly he has started having seizures and it is believed he may have a tumour on his brain, which the pdsa cannot deal with. And he needs to see a specialist.
Bens owner mrs stilwell is 77 years old, cannot afford the estimated £2000.00 vet bill.
As a community based charity, we are trying to raise the funds to help ben and mrs stilwell.
If you can help by sharing or donating i will be extremely grateful.
Please note, there is a possibility that ben may not make a full recovery, and inevitably may loose his fight.
I believe a young dog needs a fighting chance.
Donations can be made via our charity PayPal.
Once again please be aware that ben may not pull through these seizures, i wouldn’t be happy raising funds or the public to be under any illusion, this is an appeal to try and save his life.
Thank you.

    How do we contribute. Have you set up a just giving page or gofundme. This treatment must be urgent but there is no link on your site
