‘We’re just figuring it out as we go’: Esther the Wonder Pig diagnosed with cancer following CT scan | TheIFP.ca

The fight to bring a first-of-its-kind CT scanner to Canada has proved to be lifesaving for Esther the Wonder Pig. They raised $651,000 for the gear!

The famous pig initially fell ill in November 2017 and her owners, Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter, who formerly lived in Georgetown and now own the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary in Milton, have been scrambling to find a definitive diagnosis for months.

For Jenkins and Walter, that meant fundraising to bring the necessary CT scanning equipment to Canada – equipment fit for a 650-pound pig.After months of going through the proper steps and creating an online campaign, Jenkins and Walter were able to raise $651,000, and the scanner, which will have a permanent home at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) in September, was temporarily installed this month for Esther’s test.
