Duque was dumped under a bridge in Puerto Rico covered in skin cancer wounds.
Duque was suffering from skin cancer when he was abandoned a month ago under a bridge in Humacao, Puerto Rico. He lay there for several weeks with no care and no hope. He was being fed by different people each day. He finally was saved by New York Bully Crew. He was malnourished and he presented with skin cancer lesions. His prognosis is bad.
Here is what we know. He was rushed into emergency surgery. Duque lost an ear to cancer and had multiple tumors removed. Still it wasn’t enough.
He was in medical foster care until a few days ago when his body was riddled with awful open wounds due to acute skin infection and squamous cell carcinoma. His caner came back and came back hard. His rescuers at NYBC immediately rushed Duque to an emergency care and oncologist hospital. His care will cost in the thousands so please help if you can!
Duque is receiving antibiotic treatment first to cure the bacterial infections and to hopefully lessen the affected areas so he can have surgery and then more treatment for cancer. Please help us help Duque kick cancer’s butt!
Now we are working with New York Bully Crew to raise the funds needed to save Duque but we cannot do this without your help. To help save Duque and give him the care he needs please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby!
