Chippewa On CBS Denver News
This week, Dr. Marie Richardson, “Dr. C” got a special visit from CBS Denver Channel 4’s Suzanne McCarroll and Photojournalist Bill Masure because she was nominated for a CBS Pay it 4ward award.
Bonnie McKain sent the story of Chippewa in to Channel 4 and according to Suzanne, they just couldn’t resist her heartfelt letter nominating Dr. C for this award. The Pay It 4ward staff realized that Dr. C is paying out-of-pocket for the I.V.’s, plasma, leg bandages, wound care, and special goat’s milk that are all making Chippewa strong. Care for the foal has cost thousands of dollars which is why McKain wanted to pay it forward. She wanted CBS4 to help Dr. C with the medical expenses she has incurred.

Little baby Chippewa, continues to get better and is growing every day. According to Dr. Marie Richardson (Dr. C), Chip is doing just great! He had a slight set back last weekend with a bout with colic but after spending most of the night with Chip, she got him over another hurdle.
If you would like to help out Dr. C with some of Chippewa’s medical expenses, you can drop off or mail a donation to The Friends of Chippewa Fund in care of the Animal Hospital of the Rockies, P.O. Box 2897, Estes Park, CO 80517. Any size donation would be gratefully accepted and would make a difference in the life of this young horse who has such a determined will to live.
Thank you in advance from little Chippewa and Dr. C, and keep watching the EP News for further updates.
