Chi Chi, the dog rescued from meat traders and adopted by a Phoenix family, has skin cancer, according to a post on the pup's Facebook page.
The post specifies Chi Chi, a golden retriever, had a lump removed last week. A biopsy showed that the lump was skin cancer.
Chi Chi's adoptive family asked for thoughts and prayers for the pup from her fans on Facebook.
The post asked for the following prayers, specifically:
1. Pray that all of the tumor was completely removed and that the cancer has not spread to any other parts of her body
2. Pray that if additional treatment is needed, that the treatment will be effective
3. Pray that Chi Chi will not be in pain or discomfort
4. Pray for wisdom for the veterinarians and staff
5. Pray for peace and comfort for our family
Chi Chi has stolen the hearts of many people across the Phoenix area, including the 42,805 people who "like" her on Facebook.
We're thinking of Chi Chi and her family during this tough time!
