Poco Receives Pacemaker Because of Frankie's Friends

Dear Frankie's Friends, Thank you so much for being an amazing foundation for pets in need.  My little buddy, Poco (12-years-old), developed sick sinus syndrome making it necessary for her to receive a pacemaker.  Sick sinus syndrome affects the electrical impulses in the heart and was causing Poco's heart to slow down so much so that it was literally stopping for 10-second periods.  Every time this happened, Poco would fall over, looking frightened, until her heart would start back up again.  It was scary for her and stressful for me not knowing if one of these episodes would be too much for her.

When I found out Poco needed a pacemaker I had no idea how I was going to pay for such a serious operation.  Then I found out about  Frankie's Friends, who came to Poco's rescue and helped us get the care she desperately needed.  I can't tell you how thankful I am for the kindness of your foundation.  I know how many animals you've helped already and now you've made it possible for me to have my partner in crime around for, hopefully, years to come.  If Poco could talk, I know she'd scream a big "Thank you!" to Frankie's Friends and your Eddie Fund!

Thank you soooooo much!

Kenny and Poco

Poco's care was funded by Frankie's Friends "Eddie Croman Fund" that assists pets with life-threatening heart or kidney conditions.
