Dandurand Family thank S.C. Cosmopolitan Club for bringing service dog Juno to family
Thursday, the Dandurand family and their new dog Juno thanked members of the Sioux City Cosmopolitan Club who made it all possible.
Juno alerts young Noah and Emma Dandurand about big changes in their blood sugar.
Juno's previous owner passed away and the club was asked to help find him a new home.
Helping people with diabetes is the mission of the Cosmopolitan Club.
"We help send children to diabetes camp, which means a week a year they are able to get away, their families will have some relief, and they will be able to have some fun with kids like themselves," said Club President, David Lindberg.
Son Noah says Juno provides a lot of help in living with a difficult disease.
"You either take four shots a day or you have a needle in twenty four seven. so its hard because you have to change that our every day. Kids either make fun of you or ask very tough questions," said Noah Dandurand.
Juno will be attending East Middle School with Noah, making Juno the first service dog in the Sioux City school district.
