Hi there, I would like to introduce you to my best friend Juno the border collie. Since she was 12 weeks old, we have been inseparable going on adventures, going to work in a recording studio, training to become an awesome frisbee catcher and all round expert meeter & greeter.
However, since the start of lock down Juno's health has deteriorated and in May of this year she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Since then Juno has shown nothing but bravery having been subjected to being spayed, having tumours removed (benign fortunately) and her dad figuring out how to administer insulin twice daily, take blood samples and monitor glucose levels. There have been ups and downs but Juno has coped with it all, she truly is my hero.
Even though Juno is on a very low dose of insulin a day (3 units, twice a day), because of the diabetes Juno has developed Cataracts in both eyes and is loosing her vision quite rapidly and if left untreated will go blind. In all other aspects she is a fit and healthy dog.
Now this is a treatable condition and an operation will restore her sight.
This is an operation that needs to be carried out as soon as possible and due to the pandemic having had such a catastrophic effect on the financials of my recording and rehearsal studio business and with Juno already receiving insurance payments for treatment received so far, there will not be the cover to make payment for the treatment she requires to restore her vision and help her have the best quality of life doing all the things she loves.
Although a relatively common procedure, the cost of treatment in removing both cataracts will be around £5500.
- This includes £280 for the initial consultation,
- About £4500 for the operation,
- Go Fund me fees £159.50 (2.9% of total amount) + £0.25 per donation
- Spares for any additional medication or treatment Juno might need post Op.
If Juno has ever made you smile or made your visit to the studio she works at an even more enjoyable experience, please help me to raise the funds to restore her vision and give her the means to continue to see, meet and greet everyone as she is such a happy, playful people dog and an integral part of her workplace and she deserves the best life.
Those that know me will know how important Juno is in my life. She is my rock and I would do anything for her. I will be covering her treatment and recovery via Juno's YouTube Channel so you can be kept up to date on the progress.
For businesses that can make a significant contribution, Juno and I will be happy to show our appreciation in person and tell the world
about your support.
We will also plan and organise a streamed gig night as a thank you to everyone who has donated and will be inviting everyone to stream in once Juno has recovered from her operation.
Thank you for reading this and thank you again for your support.
We both hope to see you all again soon, love Greg & Juno.
