Dear Frankie's Friends and Zeus Varis Foundation, At this time, I would like to thank you for the grant and financial assistance awarded me for the care and welfare of my cat, Queenie. I only adopted Queenie last year from the ASPCA and she is such a great companion. Living alone in a big city is very intimidating but not when she is around. Queenie protects the house and meows a mile a minute. Before Frankie's Friends stepped in, I had exhausted all my options for obtaining financial assistance from funders that help pets with cancer and I also tried fund raising and found that it was low because of the tight economy. Additionally, I lost one cat in 2010 on the morning of Christmas Eve that was 17 years old and couldn't bear the thought of losing another one. Notice of Frankie's Friends Zeus Varis Award couldn't have come sooner.

I can't express my gratitude or say thank you enough for the generosity of awarding me this grant.
