Precious Time with Mattie

Precious Time with Mattie

I will never forget how everyone was so nice and kind and supportive. I am grateful for Frankie's Friends. Without them and the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund, I wouldn't have had the extra time with Mattie, so I thank you all.

Dearest Cooper, You Are My Heart

Dearest Cooper, You Are My Heart

My darling Cooper battled lymphoma for over a year and gave us a wonderful year of memories and time. The hardest thing to do is say goodbye.

Janus, Guardian of the Gates of Heaven

Janus was named for the mythological roman god of new beginnings, peace, and the guardian of the gates of heaven (her dad, a physician with a brilliant mind, never one to settle for a mainstream name for his sweet girl). Sadly, Janus recently developed lymphoma; however, through great difficulty, courage, and love, she was peacefully let go on 1/27/14. Hopefully this gift will help another animal in need receive well deserved love and care in Janus' honor.


Maxwell "JAK" of Hearts Phantom

MaxwellMaxwell was born in June of 1999 and was brought home to live with the family in August of that same year. He originally lived with his cousins (J)oseph, (A)nthony & (K)ayla (this is where the name "JAK" came from) unitl September of 1999. That same month, Maxwell went to live with Connie, Tina and their pug Maxi. It was then he began using the name JAK not to confuse the family. His sister Maxi sadly passed away. Not wanting him to feel lonely, a new addtion was brought into the family....a crazy female pug named Raven. Until the Summer of 2011 JAK lived in Staten Island, NY then he and his sister moved to Cape Cod, MA to live the remainder of his life peacfully by the ocean. JAK enjoyed lazy days cuddling with his family and giving much love to all that came in contact with him. JAK unfortunately began to develop many medical complications during his last couple of years of life. If it wasn't for the love of Connie and Tina and the care of his doctors, JAK's quality of life would have diminished much sooner. At the time of his death in the fall of 2013 JAK remained a loving constant in the family. On April 15, 2013 JAK's cousin Charlie was born and was brought home to live with his family in Cumming, Georgia in June of 2013. On December 26, 2013 at 8 months old, Charlie was diagnosed with a liver shunt and became very ill. Charlie's situation became very serious and his prognosis without surgery was dim. If it wasn't for the love of Charlie's Aunt Connie and Aunt Tina, who live in New York, Charlie wouldn't be here today. Their generosity and unconditional love for Charlie and all animals allowed him to have the life saving surgery at the Georgia Veterinary Specialist (GVS) in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Today Charlie has become a happy and vibrant young puppy giving much love and joy to his family.

Tyler, A Happy, Wonderful Friend

Hahn, Tyler pic3Dear Zeus Varis Fund, I am writing to thank you for granting me funds to pay for my cat, Tyler’s, treatment for his lymphoma. Sadly, he passed away soon after his second treatment at Blue Pearl. I think the steroid we had to give him to boost his waning energy and appetite was just too much for his heart.

Tyler was an incredibly happy, funny and lovey friend to me and his sister, Sophie, these past eleven years. I have a lot of great memories of him along with many photos and videos to remember him by.Hahn, Tyler pic1

Thank you again for helping me give him a chance at a longer happier life.
