If you're part of the Kos Check community, you may know that Churchill, the corgi mix, has been through a pretty tough time lately. On May 1st, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and underwent surgery to remove it. However, a few days after the surgery, his doctor's found that he had a kidney injury.
Since then, he has undergone further surgery and has been poked and prodded and woken in the night for scans. I'm sure you agree that he is an inspiration, because through it all, he has managed to keep up his beautiful smile and charmed all the doctor's at the hospital!
The good news is that Churchill is doing well and will soon be going home. The not so great news is that while his mom had insurance for Churchill, that has been maxed out. She didn't particularly want to ask the community for help, but people started asking if they could donate, and so she started a gofundme for Churchill. Via that page, and despite all that's going on, she has provided daily updates to keep everyone informed of Churchill's progress.
We respect all that she's done for Churchill, and especially how she has done it, so we have created a Team Churchill sticker that is available now for pre-order. This is a special edition item, and €3.50 from the sale of each sticker will go towards Churchilly's enormous vet bill. We think it captures him and his smile perfectly!
UPDATE: The stickers have now all sold out. Thank you to those who were able to buy a sticker to support Churchilly. (July 2015)
As well as the sticker, we have donated a one off, special edition t-shirt that will be auctioned by @corgsandeats. This design won't be sold in our shop, so get yourself a real Kos Check collectable for a great cause! See @corgsandeats instagram account for details of this and other auctions, which start on Monday, May 18 and will run for the week.
