This person has left the following thank you note:

It is with my deepest heartfelt gratitude that I want to say thank you. I have been in a great deal of pain not to mention what it will mean to me as far as my personal appearance. I have always been a person who has been able to take care of myself and the needs of my family and this is the first time that I have had to reach out to someone else for help. I don't know what else I can say that will express what this means to me. Thanks so very much Sincerely Randy Simmons (504) 272-9843

Extreme Pain, Dental Help Needed

My Story:

I have been working my whole life and during most of that time, I was uninsured, so visiting the dentist was not something I could afford. I now have some insurance, but it covers very little. As I get older, these things are catching up with me and now I am in extreme pain due to a lot of dental problems. My face is constantly swollen and it is very hard to focus at work. I need at least nine extractions.

I also had my brother and his family stay with me for a month while they got back on their feet, which strained my finances. I am very wise with my money so that I can take of myself and my sons, but I don't have it in my budget to afford the dental care that I need, especially with spending more recently on food and utilities while taking care of my family. I just need a little help right now. I will be most grateful if you all can help. Thank you very much.
