For Jill, the year began with the loss of a loved one. Her brother died after losing the battle to brain cancer.
It also ends not easy – the girl is struggling to save the life of her cat, Ashton.
F.I.P. is a severe infectious disease that is often fatal and causes RNA-containing coronavirus.
The virus enters the immune cells and along with them spreads throughout the body, affecting the liver, kidneys, spleen, eyes, brain and spinal cord.
In recent years, in the United States and some European countries, the drug has been used to treat this disease.
It has yet to receive official FDA approval, but it has already saved countless lives.
Jill learned from the veterinarian that her cat could still be saved, but the cost of treatment was too high for her.
And then the girl turned to users of Reddit with a request to help prolong Ashton’s life.
“I’m desperate. He is my whole world,” wrote Jill.
Her post immediately attracted the attention of animal lovers around the world.
And it turned out that many of them would like to send Jill money to pay for the treatment of the cat.
An experienced Reddit user contacted Jill.
He phoned the girl and personally learned from her the details of Ashton’s diagnosis and treatment.
The man suggested that Jill organize a fundraiser through a crowdfunding platform and shared a link to it with the group members.
In a matter of hours, the amount of the collection reached the declared amount of 9 thousand dollars.
Jill thanked all the donors and promised to account for the costs and talk about how Ashton’s treatment is going.
“It’s a long journey, but thanks to you, I have hope. I am immensely grateful to each of you,” she wrote on the collection page.
