Lexi got her second chance by receiving much needed surgery with the help of donors and Second Chance Rescue NYC.

Lexi is approximately one year old and was found tied to a fence in Brooklyn. Brought to the Brooklyn Animal Care & Control, Lexi had to remain there for the required 3 days before Second Chance Rescue NYC could take her.

Once Lexi received medical attention, it was determined that she had an aggressive soft tissue mass. This mass was behind one eye and had also grown in to her sinus cavity.

Thoughts shared from Hendrick Boards before Lexi had the surgery will help readers understand why the need for surgery was urgent:

By Sunday night, Lexi started to deteriorate - blood and other discharge was oozing from her eyes and nose. She was rushed to an ER vet late Sunday by SCR, and an MRI confirmed that Lexi has an aggressive soft tissue mass behind her eye that has grown into her sinus cavity. She is being treated with pain medication and antibiotics, and is getting ready for a biopsy. In order to save Lexi's life, the mass must be removed along with her eye.

Lexi needs our help. To donate to her ongoing medical treatment and care, donate directly to our friends at Second Chance Rescue: http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/donate/.
