WE HAVE JUST SEVEN DAYS…
The human monster approached him carrying a shovel and, in one devastating blow, cut his skull in half, taking the right eye and the zygomatic arch, destroying muscles and nerves and causing fatal jaw damage…
His first reaction was to flee, to seek a quiet place where he could hide from his own pain. We don’t know how long he was there, but the first few days must have been hell. Dead tissue fell away, the right eye too… and the empty socket filled with grass and hair. It’s a miracle that the infection did not kill him.
With a broken and blocked jaw, SKY was destined for certain death. SKY CANNOT OPEN HIS MOUTH, and all this time his food has had to be puréed.
SKY CAME TO US FIVE WEEKS AGO. SINCE THEN HE HAS BEEN OPERATED AND WE RECONSTRUCTED HIS SOFT TISSUES. He has since been admitted to Intensive Care, where he is being prepared for the final surgery.
HIS ONLY HOPE IS THE IMPLANTATION OF A PROSTHETIC JAW.
The prosthesis has been designed and will be implanted by a team of veterinary and human maxilofacial surgeons.
WE HAVE EXACTLY SEVEN DAYS TO GET ALL THE HELP WE CAN, TO OPERATE AND COMPLETE HIS TREATMENT. WE HAVE SEVEN DAYS TO SAVE SKY!
