A Pit Bull Named Rocco


Rocco & Lymphoma

I haven't updated this page in a while but Rocco was diagnosed with Lymphoma on St. Patricks day this year. He has been doing a chemo treatment that has kept him going since (and going quite good) although the cancer is expected to return between mid-January and mid-March of next year. I'm hoping Rocco defies the expectations but we'll take it as it comes.

Here is Rocco's blog that talks about the Chemo:
