MEQUON — On Giving Tuesday, November 28th, a student and Concordia University were given something more valuable than money.

Kadee Knapper is a Concordia student, who is also a veteran and cancer patient. On Tuesday, she was given a comfort dog to help her through her treatment process.

The dog, which would normally cost in the range of $15,000, was donated by a veteran support service in Minnesota, and much of the costs to care for the dog will be covered by donations made by fellow Concordia students and professors.
