Helping Juno

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who helped out with this. All items have been selected and Juno is now able to get the care she needs. From the bottom of my heart – thank you. Thank you to all of you who donated money, items and words of support. Not having to worry about the financial part of her care really helps me to focus on her physical health. You are all the best. I appreciate all of it more than you will ever know.

Want to help me help Juno?

As many of you know, Juno has been my best friend for 7.5 years. She has supported me through bad injuries and long recoveries, my mom’s death, THE breakup, and is currently keeping me sane through this garbage. She is the rock to my mental and physical health.

Recently, Juno has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that is attacking the balance part of her brain. I noticed one day she was swaying a lot and acting super weird – but not her usual funny weird. The prognosis is good and she is responding fairly well to treatment, but it has been VERY expensive. While I do have insurance for her – it maxed out in the first appointment. With the sports industry basically at a standstill, I am having a difficult time supporting her and making sure she gets what she needs to return to being the sassy weim she is known for.

Since this time has been tough on everyone, I am not the type of person to ask for something for nothing. So with the help of a lot of my wonderful small business friends and artists from around the city (and country) I have put together a fundraiser with a number of items available.

**Draws will take place LIVE (via Facebook Live) on Thursday December 10 at 7 p.m. MST **
