    I haven't posted anything on what we have been battling the last 9 months. Chance has been having some serious skin issues that we have been working on to figure out what was going on .... after 2 doctors ( left the old one and went to a new with this issue) hundreds of $$$, we finally got a diagnosis today. Unfortunately not a good one either :( I don't know a lot at this point - other than the confirmed diagnosis of Epitheliotropic Lymphoma . I am not very hopeful that there will be a lot of insight here as this is not a super common cancer but if anyone by chance does have so experience or advise it would be greatly appreciated. I will hear back from the vet after he does some talking to other doctors and comes up with a game plan. I do know that Chemo will not be an option we will choose. So we sure could use some positive vibes right now <3

    I am so sorry about the diagnosis. I know of several people who have given CBD oil. It will not cure the cancer but seems to help with dealing with it. I got mine off Amazon or at a local health food store.
