"Our beautiful Scottish deerhound, Garnet Ace, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a fast-growing cancer, in his left front leg. We had to make an immediate decision for treatment. Amputating his leg was the only way to extend his life. I told the doctors to schedule his surgery for the next morning and went home knowing I needed a miracle. I looked over the CareCredit brochure and went online to apply. I got my miracle! My husband and I were approved for the full credit line to cover our deerhound's medical needs. Now, nearly 16 months later, he is cancer free. It was the best decision I've ever made. CareCredit gave me the opportunity to choose life for my 'hound! Just don't tell Ace that he only has three legs, he won't believe you! Thank you so much for this wonderful service--this is what credit should be used for: to help us care for ourselves and others in a responsible way during times of emergency." --Deborah F., Raleigh, N.C.
